Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature's laws

learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more
common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a
proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and
determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve
the problems of the human race.

Writers remember everything...especially the hurts. Strip a writer to the buff, point to the
scars, and he'll tell you the story of each small one. From the big ones you get novels. A little
talent is a nice thing to have if you want to be a writer, but the only real requirement is the
ability to remember the story of every scar.
Art consists of the persistence of memory.

The crazy creatives are the creatives who never go completely mad. They aren't so easily
disheartened by the seemingly endless amounts of scrutiny that creative individuals tend to
receive because they, like insanity, are the ones who feed off of opposition and negative

Creativity is paradoxical. To create, a person must have knowledge but forget the
knowledge, must see unexpected connections in things but not have a mental disorder, must
work hard but spend time doing nothing as information incubates, must create many ideas yet
most of them are useless, must look at the same thing as everyone else, yet see something
different, must desire success but embrace failure, must be persistent but not stubborn, and
must listen to experts but know how to disregard them."

Im learning persistence and the closing of doors, the way the seasons come and go as I keep
walking on these roads, back and forth, to find myself in new time zones, new arms with new
phrases and new goals. And it hurts to become, hurts to find out about the poverty and gaps,
the widow and the leavers. It hurts to accept that it hurts and it hurts to learn how easy it is for
people to not need other people. Or how easy it is to need other people but that you can never
build a home in someones arms because they will let go one day and you must build your
own.

So long as the man with ambition is a failure, the world will tell him to let go of his ideal;
but when his ambition is realized, the world will praise him for the persistence and the
determination that he manifested during his dark hours, and everybody will point to his life as
an example for coming generations. This is invariably the rule. Therefore pay no attention to
what the world says when you are down. Be determined to get up, to reach the highest goal
you have in view, and you will.

The rewrites are a struggle right now. Sometimes I wish writing a book could just be easy
for me at last. But when I think about it practically, I am glad it's a struggle. I am (as usual)
attempting to write a book that's too hard for me. I'm telling a story I'm not smart enough to

When your efforts run in the face of conventional wisdom and accepted mastery, persistence
can look like madness. If you succeed in the end, this extreme originality reformulates into a
new level of mastery, sometimes even genius; if you fail in the end, you remain a madman in
the eyes of others, and maybe even yourself. When you are in the midst of the journey
theres really no way of knowing which one you are. (p.129)

What do you mean? What do you demand of your captain? Are you then so easily turned
from your design? Did you not call this a glorious expedition? And wherefore was it
glorious? Not because the way was smooth and placid as a southern sea, but because it was
full of dangers and terror; because at every new incident your fortitude was to be called forth
and your courage exhibited; because danger and death surrounded it, and these you were to
brave and overcome. For this was it a glorious, for this was it an honourable undertaking. You
were hereafter to be hailed as the benefactors of your species; your names adored as
belonging to brave men who encountered death for honour and the benefit of mankind. And
now, behold, with the first imagination of danger, or, if you will, the first mighty and terrific
trial of your courage, you shrink away, and are content to be handed down as men who had
not strength enough to endure cold and peril; and so, poor souls, they were chilly and
returned to their warm firesides. Why that requires not this preparation; ye need not have
come thus far, and dragged your captain to the shame of a defeat, merely to prove yourselves
cowards. Oh! be men, or be more than men. Be steady to your purposes and firm as a rock.
This ice is not made of such stuff as your hearts may be; it is mutable and cannot withstand
you if you say that it shall not. Do not return to your families with the stigma of disgrace
marked on your brows. Return as heroes who have fought and conquered, and who know not
what it is to turn their backs on the foe.

I took off my sweatshirt and dropped it on the grass and set off around the track. As soon as
I started running, the world changed. The bodies spread out across the green of the football
field were parts of a scene remembered, not one real at this moment. The secret of effort is to
keep on, I told myself. Not for the world would I have stopped then, and yet nothing- not
even if I had been turned handsome as a reward for finishing- could have made up for the
curious pain of the effort.

A distaste for the new is not always fear of the unknown, but sometimes ambition. Some

This path was not that of my conscious choosing. But after persistent subconscious
confrontation, I have finally embraced what is, 'souly' for me...and I am thankful, when called
upon, to be able to share and give to those who seek their own way of the path.

A certain readiness to perish is not so very rare, but it is seldom that you meet men whose
souls, steeled in the impenetrable armour of resolution, are ready to fight a losing battle to the
last, the desire of peace waxes stronger as hope declines, till at last it conquers the very desire
of life. Which of us here has not observed this, or maybe experienced something of that
feeling in his own person - this extreme weariness of emotions, the vanity of effort, the
yearning for rest?

After scientists broke open the coat of a lotus seed (Nelumbo nucifera) and coddled the
embryo into growth, they kept the empty husk. When they radiocarbon-dated this discarded
outer shell, they discovered that their seedling had been waiting for them within a peat bog in
China for no less than two thousand years. This tiny seed had stubbornly kept up the hope of
its own future while entire human civilizations rose and fell. And then one day this little
plant's yearning finally burst forth within a laboratory. I wonder where it is right now.

Why, Mr. Anderson?, Why, why?.

Why do you do it? Why, why get up?.

Why keep fighting?.

Do you believe you're fighting...for something?.

For more than your survival?.

Can you tell me what it is?.

Do you even know?; Is it freedom?, Or truth?.

Perhaps peace?. Could it be for love?

Illusions, Mr. Anderson.

Vagaries of perception.

Temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify an existence


that is without meaning or purpose.

And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although... only a human mind could invent
something as insipid as love.

You must be able to see it, Mr. Anderson.

You must know it by now, You can't win.

It's pointless to keep fighting.

Why?, Why do you persist?.

Mr. Lawrence drank from his beer. Do you know how I figure out what to do? I look under
rocks for slime. I lick the slime with my own tongue. I see the problem for what it is, not
what a consultant's methodology says it should be. I find people who are working on
something that no one told them to work on, who solve a problem because they can't let it
stay unsolved, who don't eat or bathe because it takes too much time. I find the ones selling
their ideas to customers without going through the marketing department first. I've gotten
good at picking molds off cheeses and turning them into penicillin. People used to wonder
where my ideas came from. It was simple: I looked for slimy rocks and moldy cheese, and I
watched the bank account like a hawk. It worked well for this company for a long time.

grows back in a scarred heart is sometimes wilder and stronger than it was before the fire.
And if you stay in there, in that shine within yourself, that new place of light, forgiving
everything and never giving up, sooner or later you'll always find yourself right back there
where love and beauty made the world: at the beginning. The beginning. The beginning.

The source of all things, the luminescence, has more forms than heaven's stars, sure. And
one good thought is all it takes to make it shine. But a single mistake can burn down a forest
in your heart, hiding all the stars, in all the skies,. And while a mistake's till burning, ruined
love or lsot faith can make you think you're done, and you can't go on. But it's not true. It's
never true. No matter what you do, no matter where you're lost, the luminescence never
leaves you. Any good thing that dies inside ca rise again, if you want it hard enough. The
heart doesnt know how to quit, because it doesn't know how to lie. You lift your eyes from
the page, fall into the smile of a perfect stranger, and the searching starts all over again. It's
not what it was. It's always different. It's always something else. But the new forest that
grows back in a scarred heart is sometimes wilder and stronger than it was before the fire.

There are people who know where they want to be, and also have a roadmap in their mind,
about how to get there. But something stops them! They either keep waiting for better
circumstances, or simply lack the courage to give up the comfort of a secure life. For them,
the pursuit of their purpose is a risky proposition. Often, those are the same people that die
with the weight of regrets. Those are the people who feel unfulfilled or unworthy at the end
of their journey. They bury their dreams for the sake of a safe life, without ever venturing into
the world of possibilities. But the truth is that if you risk nothing for the pursuit of your
passion, you risk more. An even deeper reality is that theres never a perfect time; the most
ideal and opportune time is the time when YOU choose to begin your journey. Find courage
to take the first step today. Your age, your pace, or your handicap doesnt matter. Nothing is
insurmountable if you have passion and persistence your heart knows this. You simply have
to convince your mind to play along. Find your moments of courage the times when you
feel strong, able, and energized. Tap those moments to launch yourself; the world beckons!

Once, a few years earlier, Jules had gone to see a play at Ashs theater, and afterward, during
the talkback, when the audience asked questions of the playwright and of Ash, whod
directed the production, a woman stood up and said, This one is for Ms. Wolf. My daughter
wants to be a director too. Shes applying to graduate school in directing, but I know very
well that there are no jobs, and that shes probably only going to have her dreams dashed.
Shouldnt I encourage her to do something else, to find some other field she can get into
before too much time goes by? And Ash had said to that mother, Well, if shes thinking
about going into directing, she has to really, really want it. Thats the first thing. Because if
she doesnt, then theres no point in putting herself through all of this, because its incredibly
hard and dispiriting. But if she does really, really want it, and if she seems to have a talent for
it, then I think you should tell her, Thats wonderful. Because the truth is, the world will
probably whittle your daughter down. But a mother never should.

Leaders are made not born. They are the results of persistent effort. Thus, leadership
involves much more than just shouting. Effective leadership requires a human focus and
reflects a servant and transformation mentality. It is about the nuts and bolts of execution.
Leadership is an everyday activity. It is a process that begins but never ends.

Education is a choice. We don't become educated by watching television, and we don't learn
a whole lot having similar conversations with the same, safe people day after day. Our
education comes from pushing up against boundaries, from taking risks that may seem at first
to be overwhelming, and by persevering past the first disappointments or shortfalls until we
reach a point at which actual learning takes place. Determination and perseverance are
absolutely vital to developing a true education--rarely, if ever, do we learn the most valuable
lessons in the first few steps of the journey.

Edison was by far the most successful and, probably, the last exponent of the purely
empirical method of investigation. Everything he achieved was the result of persistent trials
and experiments often performed at random but always attesting extraordinary vigor and
resource. Starting from a few known elements, he would make their combinations and
permutations, tabulate them and run through the whole list, completing test after test with
incredible rapidity until he obtained a clue. His mind was dominated by one idea, to leave no
stone unturned, to exhaust every possibility.

I stretched out on the bed and slept. It was twilight when I awakened and turned on the light.
I felt better, no longer tired. I went to the typewriter and sat before it. My thought was to
write a sentence, a single perfect sentence. If I could write one good sentence I could write
two and if I could write two I could write three, and if I could write three I could write
forever. But suppose I failed? Suppose I had lost all of my beautiful talent? Suppose it had
burned up in the fire of Biff Newhouse smashing my nose or Helen Brownell dead forever?
What would happen to me? Would I go to Abe Marx and become a busboy again? I had
seventeen dollars in my wallet. Seventeen dollars and the fear of writing. I sat erect before the
typewriter and blew on my fingers. Please God, please Knut Hamsun, dont desert me now. I
started to write and I wrote:
The time has come, the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:
Of shoesand shipsand sealing wax
Of cabbagesand kings
I looked at it and wet my lips. It wasnt mine, but what the hell, a man had to start

Writing is difficult. You do it all alone without encouragement and without any certainty that
you'll ever be published or paid or even that you'll be able to finish the particular work you've
begun. It isn't easy to persist amid all that. [...] Sometimes when I'm interviewed, the
interviewer either compliments me on my 'talent', my 'gift' or asks me how I discovered it.
[...] I used to struggle to answer this politely, to explain that I didn't believe much in writing
talent. People who want to write either do it or they don't. At last I began to say that my most
important talent - or habit - was persistence. Without it, I would have given up writing long
before I finished my first novel. It's amazing what we can do if we simply refuse to give up.

They who lack talent expect things to happen without effort. They ascribe failure to a lack of
inspiration or ability, or to misfortune, rather than to insufficient application. At the core of
every true talent there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the
confidence that persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized. Thus talent is
a species of vigor. (Eric Hoffer 1902-1983)

A warm sunny evening, the plash and gurgle of the waves in the rock pools, the rush of the
cold gin. I thought for the first time of my novel, abandoned, all these years, and I came up,
unprompted, with the perfect title. Octet. Octet by Logan Mountstuart. Perhaps I will surprise
them all, yet.

It is not the best for us to lay embago on the industries that produce temptations. What we
need to do is to compete, overcome and dominate the market with the products of our
endurance. No battles we face, no crown will we win. No temptations exist, no conquerors
are known.

Life has moments that feel as if the sun has blackened to tar and the entire world turned to
ice. It feels as if Hades and his vile demons have risen from the depths of Tartarus solely for
the purpose of banding to personally torture you, and that their genuine intent of mental,
emotional, and spiritual anguish is tearing you to shreds. Your heart weighs as heavily as
leaden legs which you would drag yourself forward with if not for the quicksand that pulls
you down inch by inch, paralyzing your will and threatening oblivion. And all the while fire
and brimstone pour from the sky, pelting only you.
Truly, that is what it feels like. But that feeling is a trial that won't last forever. Never give
up.

Is anything truly impossible? Or is it that the path to our goals appears too unclear to
follow? It seems to me that if you seek hard enough, pray hard enough, you usually stumble
across a scattering of breadcrumbs that marks the trail leading to the goal you once
considered beyond your reach.

Inspiration comes when you stick your elbows on the table, your bottom on the chair and
you start sweating. Choose a theme, an idea, and squeeze your brain until it hurts. That's
called inspiration.

I will not be defined by the marks left on me by the world, but by the mark I leave on the

ugly").

If I did not believe in life, if I were to lose faith in the woman I love, if I were to lose faith in
the order of things, even if I were to become convinced, on the contrary, that everything is a
disorderly, damned, and perhaps devilish chaos, if I were struck even by all the horrors of
human disillusionment-still I would want to live, and as long as I have bent to this cup, I will
not tear myself from it until I've drunk it all!

Most of Csongor's time in T'Rain had been spent blundering about in a state of hapless
newbie confusion. Only his long experience as a system administrator, struggling with
Byzantine software installations, had prevented hum from plummeting into despair and
simply giving up. Not that any of the sysadmin's knowledge and skills were applicable here.
The psychological stance was the thing: the implicit faith, a little naive and a little cocky, that
by banging his head against the problem for long enough he'd be able to break through in the
end.
