Memo to Self: Don’t Quit.


Are you having the day/week/month I’ve been having?

Notes next to computer:

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.” ~ Lance Armstrong

“Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.” ~ Vince Lombardi

“It's always too early to quit.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale

“Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.” ~ Winston Churchill

“Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.”
~ Douglas MacArthur

“Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal and don't quit until you attain it. When you do attain it, set another goal, and don't quit until you reach it. Never quit.”
~ Paul (Bear) Bryant

“It's when things get rough and you don't quit that success comes.”

~ Unknown.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
~ Mark Twain

Please, excuse me. I’ve got work to do.

~ Roxanne Sherwood

There are actually tons of reasons not to quit. My # reason is the love for my work. I know that as a writer, there are a lot of things to write and sometimes, just looking at the words cause a sever headache. I just finished submitting my book report job about 2 hours ago and now, I'm doing my best to make this essayontime. There is no room for quitting because we all need to grow and develop. Stopping and quitting will do us no good at all.

Great comment, Kay! Thanks for stopping by.

Sometimes writing gives me a headache too, but I can't imagine anything else I'd feel this passionate about. I guess that's what keeps me from quitting.

I hope you'll visit The Writing Road again.
