6. Be As Persistent As you Can Be

 Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

– Brian Dyson
Commencement Address at
Georgia Tech, 1996

 You get some success. You run into some walls…it’s how tenacious you are, how irrepressible, how ultimately optimistic and tenacious you are about it that will determine your success.

– Steve Ballmer

 As long as you are alive, it is never too late .

– John Mackey
Commencement Address at Bently College, 2008

 When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road your climbing seems all up hill,
When funds are low and debts are high,
When you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is getting you down a bit,
Rest if you must – but don’t you quit.

– Larry Bock
Commencement Address at University of California, 2007
