A competitor will find a way to win. Competitors take bad breaks and use them to drive themselves just that much harder. Quitters take bad breaks and use them as a reason to give up. It’s all a matter of pride.  -Nancy Lopez


The above quote applies. Perseverance is an integral part of success. Parents must encourage their children to persevere even in difficult times. Perseverance builds character.
