Perserverance

Firmness and steadfastness, however, are necessary, otherwise it will continue for some time, but later be gradually forgotten. Perseverance is an essential condition. In every project firmness and steadfastness will undoubtedly lead to good results; otherwise it will exist for some days, and then be discontinued.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, p. 143)


It needs great perseverance to obtain a hearing among the people and draw their attention to this Blessed Cause. But once that that has been obtained and the way smoothed then progress becomes increasingly great and the fruits of your labours appreciated.
(Shoghi Effendi, Arohanui - Letters to New Zealand, p. 11)


Let them remember that a firm resolution on their part, an absolute rededication of their resources, and an actual attempt to translate into action their meritorious intentions, coupled with perseverance in the discharge of their duties, would suffice to ensure the success of the mission to which they are now committed.
(Shoghi Effendi, Dawn of a New Day, p. 85)


Perseverance in action is essential.
(Shoghi Effendi, The Compilation of Compilations vol II, p. 322)


Perseverance is an essential condition. In every project firmness and steadfastness will undoubtedly lead to good results; otherwise it will exist for some days, and then be discontinued.

There is such a confusion in the world today, so much uncertainty, so much materialism, that it is very hard to hold the attention of even the more spiritually minded people. But we must persevere and do our best knowing this is our duty and that conditions will eventually change completely and follow Bahá’u’lláh’s Pattern.
(Shoghi Effendi, High Endeavours - Messages to Alaska, p. 49)


Victories are won usually through a great deal of patience, planning and perseverance, and rarely accomplished at a single stroke.

Your perseverance will, even as a magnet, draw upon you the favours and blessings of Bahá’u’lláh.
