Tenacity Quotes

The right merchant is one who has the just average of faculties we call common sense; a man of a strong affinity for facts, who makes up his decision on what he has seen. He is thoroughly persuaded of the truths of arithmetic. There is always a reason, in the man, for his good or bad fortune in making money. Men talk as if there were some magic about this. He knows that all goes on the old road, pound for pound, cent for cent / for every effect a perfect cause / and that good luck is another name for tenacity of purpose.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

OPTIMISM, n. The doctrine, or belief, that everything is beautiful, including what is ugly, everything good, especially the bad, and everything right that is wrong. It is held with greatest tenacity by those most accustomed to the mischance of falling into adversity, and is most acceptably expounded with the grin that apes a smile. Being a blind faith, it is inaccessible to the light of disproof --an intellectual disorder, yielding to no treatment but death. It is hereditary, but fortunately not contagious.

Ambrose Bierce

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Three things differentiate living from the soul versus living from ego only. They are: the ability to sense and learn new ways, the tenacity to ride a rough road, and the patience to learn deep love over time... So, it is not from the ever changing ego that we love one another but rather from the wild soul

Clarissa Pinkola Est├ęs

They were a bigger, faster, stronger, team than we were. We bent, but we never broke and gave a lot up .I think it was an intense fast paced game. Their kids were a lot bigger, which made for an incredible game. Our guys never backed down, playing with a lot of tenacity.

Jim Segar

Diamonds are nothing more than chunks of coal that stuck to their jobs.

Malcolm Stevenson Forbes

The people of your culture cling with fanatical tenacity to the specialness of man. They want desperately to perceive a vast gulf between man and the rest of creation. This mythology of human superiority justifies their doing whatever they please with the world, just the way Hitlers mythology of Aryan superiority justified his doing whatever he pleased with Europe. But in the end this mythology is not deeply satisfying. The Takers are a profoundly lonely people. The world for them is enemy territory, and they live in it like an army of occupation, alienated and isolated by their extraordinary specialness.

Daniel Quinn
