Down but not defeated

Lesson – If you fall down, get back up again

There are many times in life when you ‘fall down’. You may be confronted with failure, setbacks or even discouragement from others. The trick is to just keep going by utilising persistence and diligence.

Quotes:

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly – English proverb

We are persecuted, but we are not forsaken; We are cast down, but we are not defeated. – 2 Corinthians – 4:9

– Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you. – Walt Whitman

– Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall – Confucius

“Despair, or folly?’ said Gandalf. ‘It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not. It is wisdom to recognize necessity, when all other courses have been weighed, though as folly it may appear to those who cling to false hope. Well, let folly be our cloak, a veil before the eyes of the Enemy! For he is very wise, and weighs all things to a nicety in the scales of his malice. But the only measure that he knows is desire, desire for power; and so he judges all hearts. Into his heart the thought will not enter that any will refuse it, that having the Ring we may seek to destroy it. If we seek this, we shall put him out of reckoning.’ 
’At least for a while,’ said Elrond. ‘The road must be trod, but it will be very hard. And neither strength nor wisdom will carry us far upon it. This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong. Yet such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.” – Gandalf
