Determination: The Tree of Life!

"When anyone asks me about the Irish character, I say look at the trees. Maimed, stark and misshapen, but ferociously tenacious."

Edna O'Brien
Irish Author

Ferociously tenacious.

  1. I'll drink (a green beer) to that!

  2. "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."

    Winston Churchill
