Every achievement worth remembering is stained with the blood of diligence and scarred by the wounds of disappointment.
To quit, to run, to escape, to hide—none of these options solve anything. They only postpone the acceptance of, and reckoning with, reality.
Churchill put it well: “Wars are not won by evacuations.” . . .
Giving thought to giving up?
Considering the possibility of quitting? . . .
Don’t! . . . The only time the Lord ever used the word “easy” was when He referred to a yoke.
