Keep Trying

Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th. (Julie Andrews, English actress)

The renowned inventor Thomas Edison enlarged on Andrews’ comment. He earlier had said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” If he had stopped experimenting at 9,9999 failed attempts, how much longer might it have been that the electric light or the phonograph had been invented? If you’re seeking a legitimate goal, keep working hard at it.

The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. (Proverbs 24:16).
