Napoleon Hill devoted an entire chapter in Think and Grow Rich to persistence. In that chapter he said, "there may be no heroic connotation to the word persistence, but the character is to the quality of man what carbon is to steel." Hill also pointed out in another part of the same chapter, that the only thing which separated Thomas Edison or Henry Ford from the rest of the people in the world was persistence. For both of these great men had an image and they would not let anyone or anything dissuade them - they were persistent. One illuminated the world; the other put the world on wheels. Both were, of course, richly rewarded.
