We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.

See it through

There are those who quit as soon as something goes wrong. They never even get a glimpse of the achievement they seek. There are others who hold on for a while, but then give up after repeated disappointments. They invest much time and effort, and then abandon it all too soon.

Then there are those who see it through. They find a way to keep going, no matter what. They are fully committed because they know, without a doubt, the value of what they’re determined to achieve. They transcend not only the setbacks, but also the taunting and derision of all those who urge them to give up.

Thankfully, there are those who see it through, who put all they have on the line to accomplish what they know must be done. They bring incalculable value to the world in which we all live.

When life moves forward in spite of the odds against it, there’s always someone who makes it happen. That’s the person who is ready and willing to see it all the way through.

— Ralph Marston
