Success is not final, failure is not fatal:
it is the courage to continue that counts.
– Winston Churchill
Over time, grit is what separates fruitful lives from aimlessness.
– John Ortberg
Grit is not just simple elbow-grease term for rugged persistence.
It is an often invisible display of endurance that lets
you stay in an uncomfortable place, work hard to improve
upon a given interest and do it again and again.
– Sarah Lewis, PhD
Childhood doesn’t have to be perfect, and children don’t
have to be beautiful. From a bit of grit may grow a pearl,
and if pearl production doesn’t materialize, the outcome will
still be preferable to the shallowness of vanity.
– Laurie Graham
Heroes are never perfect, but they’re brave, they’re authentic,
they’re courageous, determined, discreet, and they’ve got grit.
Grit is sticking with your future day in,
day out and not just for the week,
not just for the month, but for years.
– Angela Lee Duckworth, PhD
