Persistence Quotes

Persistence Quotes- Persistence is the most important quality for success in life.  Persistence compels us to continue to do something even though the task is difficult or opposed by others.  The power of persistence cannot be underestimated.  If you cling to persistence, it strengthens your commitment. If you set high goals in your life, persistence is an inevitable quality you should compulsorily acquire and adopt. It helps to reach your desires and ambitions, no matter how big the impediments may be that intrude in your way.  Without persistence, you may well quit at the first sign of defeat. But acquiring the quality of persistence, you realize that defeats are only part of the very natural phenomenon and they are mere temporary setbacks in pursuit of goals.  Here we list some of the most inspiring quotes on persistence:
