Stick-To-It-Iveness

 

stick to it

This is an attractive and colourful book by Addie Johnson that contains at least one quote on every page. Some pages contain inspirational anecdotes too. The first quote  (which is also on the back cover and the inside cover) is Winston Churchill’s “Never, never, never give up.” The second is by Thomas Edison: “The three essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-it-iveness; third, common sense.” Some other quotations I like are:

  • Without discipline, there’s no life at all. (Katharine Hepburn)
  • To love someone deeply gives us strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives us courage. (Lao Tzu)
  • Most of us have more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed. (Dale Carneige)
  • There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. (William Shakespeare)
  • It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves. (Edmund Hillary)
  • Perserverence, secret of all triumphs. (Victor Hugo)
