Persistence Pays

“What counts most is holding on. The growth of a train of thought is not a direct forward flow. There is a succession of spurts seperated by intervals of stagnation, frustration and discouragement. If you hold on, there is bound to come a certain clarification. The unessential components drop off and a coherent, lucid whole begins to take shape.” – Eric Hoffer 1961
