"Whatever it is you're facing, stand strong.
Walk in quiet confidence, not veiled pride.
Be sure without being stubborn...
firm without being unteachable...
enduring but not discourteous...
full of truth balanced with grace."
- Charles Swindoll
(Christian pastor, author, educator)
"To be torn unmercifully by external forces,
and still to preserve one's inward integrity,
is to know the discipline that endures."
- V. Raymond Edman
(associate professor of political science
at Wheaton College,
was named fourth president of the College,
serving from 1940 to 1965)
"So do not throw away your confidence;
it will be richly rewarded.
You need to persevere
so that when you have done the will of God,
you will receive what he has promised."
- Hebrews 10:35,36 NIV
