decisions

"One of the most common mistakes and one of the costliest, is thinking success is due to some genius, some magic something or other which we do not possess. Success is generally due to holding on and failure to let go. You decide to learn a language, study music, take a course in reading, train yourself physically. Will it be a success or failure? It depends upon how much pluck and perseverance that word 'decide' contains. The decision that nothing will overrule, the grip that nothing can detatch will bring great success."
- clergyman and author Maltbie D Babcock
