“Strength: A river cuts through a rock not because of its power, but its persistence”

"Strength: A river cuts through a rock not because of its power, but because of its persistence” is a motivational saying that has been printed on many posters. The saying has been cited on Twitter since April 4, 2010. No author was credited.

Jim Watkins has been credited since at least March 2011, and the saying appears—undated—on the website of James N. Watkins.

I can’t remember who said this but it means so much to me. Just remember that the key to being successful in nofap, and anything else in life, is to never give up and always try one more time.
