Here’s a few quotes for the would-be writers of the world. The topic this week? Perseverance:

“The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.” 
~Henry Ward Beecher

“When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.” 
~Franklin D. Roosevelt

“The drops of rain make a hole in the stone not by violence but by oft falling.” 
~Lucretius

I Will Not Don the Black

I will not don the Black

I will not bend the Knee

I will not break my Oaths

Or break my Word for thee.

Take my Head

Or take my Hand;

Break my Body a Thousand Ways—

My Will shall ever stand.

Just because you own the Law,

Does not make you Right—

Just because you hold the Crown

Does not ignite my Fright.
