But you've got to persevere, you've got to be guided by certain principles and stay the course. If you quit, if you run away when the going gets tough, you won't really understand what a full life is all about. - George H. W. Bush

It's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere. - Barack Obama
