Persistence

Well, got the official note today that neither piece, A Fresh Start nor the Mommy Glove got accepted into Craft Texas. It was a long shot, that I knew, so I’m ok with it, but a bit bummed.

So, ever the librarian, I went in search of persistence/rejection quotes. Here are several I liked, maybe they’ll speak to you too.

If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success – but only if you persist. (Isaac Asimov)

Your persistence is your measure of faith in yourself. (Author unknown)

I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen. (Frank Lloyd Wright)

How you react to rejection is important. It is not the rejection of others that truly affects us, the problem occurs when… that rejection by others causes us to “reject” ourselves. (Chris Tyrell)

And the last from Robert Genn, artist and creator of the Painterskeys website, the source of these art quotes.

It is necessary to put yourself out for rejection, and accept that you will be rejected. (Robert Genn)
