Great perseverance quote. Here are some more I saw on Goodreads:

"Giving up is the only sure way to fail." ~ Gena Showalter

"You know what I did after I wrote my first novel? I shut up and wrote 23 more." ~ Michael Connelly

"If you can quit, then quit. If you can't quit, you're a writer." ~ R.A. Salvatore
