Sometimes just hanging on is the greatest virtue a person can exhibit. In fact, I think perseverance is courage in a time-release form.
There’s a Japanese proverb that says, “Fall seven times. Stand up eight.” Some of my greatest heros don’t necessarily possess incredible skills or brilliance. They simply didn’t walk away. They possessed remarkable untiring staying power.
