A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.
Constant effort and frequent mistakes are the stepping stones to genius.
Literature is the noblest of all the arts. Music dies on the air, or at best exists only as a memory; oratory ceases with the effort; the painter's colors fade and the canvas rots; the marble is dragged from its pedestal and is broken into fragments.
How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience would have achieved success.
If men will not act for themselves, what will they do when the benefit of their effort is for all?
