DETERMINATION QUOTATIONS
“She stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails.”

Elizabeth Edwards

“I believe success is achieved by ordinary people with extraordinary determination.”

Zig Ziglar

“Fall seven times, stand up eight.”

Japanese Proverb

“There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.”

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“Your opponent, in the end, is never really the player on the other side of the net, or the swimmer in the next lane, or the team on the other side of the field, or even the bar you must high-jump. Your opponent is yourself, your negative internal voices, your level of determination.”

Grace Lichtenstein

“If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down.”

Mary Pickford

“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.”

Og Mandino

“Falling down is part of life. Getting back up is living.”

Anonymous

“The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination.”

Tommy Lasorda

“Never, never, never give up.”

Sir Winston Churchill

“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it or work around it.”

Michael Jordan

“A will finds a way.”

Orison Swett Marden

if it doesn't get rough you're not going anywhere

Determination is the engine which drives perseverance. But the beginning of it all is commitment.

Josie from Brisbane Austraia DECEMBER 9, 2012
Yes I agree that determination is the ability to keep pushing no matter what. However, this is the same as addiction. knowing when to yield is just as important as determination in my opinion. A strong mind can also be a mind that cannot change direction for the better when needed. The current of determination is good if not tainted with ignorance.

It's really awesome!

Anderson de Sousa Almeida from Colatina NOVEMBER 15, 2012
Brooke, sua história é muito bonita e admirável

Mahesh from Chennai ,India JULY 26, 2012
Stopping at nothing, And doing what's in your heart, You know is right, ...means determination

keenpetite from Southeast Arizona FEBRUARY 18, 2012
Determination is the act of not feeling sorry for oneself, because if we do then negative & destructive thinking & emotions will take control. Our Creator expects to less because we were created in his Image. Brooke has the determination but a strong will to succeed despite her problems, a great example to the rest of us.

Logan from Kent, WA SEPTEMBER 3, 2011
Determination is the ability to keep pushing no matter what obstacles are put in your path, a single person with a purpose and the determination to accomplish such a task is a force to be reckoned with, a force that once going, cannot easily be stopped.
