Background

A description of the experience

Henry Austin – Perseverance Conquers all

‘Twixt failure and success the point’s so fine
Men sometimes know not when they touch the line
Just when the pearl was waiting one more plunge
How many a struggler has thrown up the sponge! …
Then take this honey from the bitterest cup
‘There is no failure save in giving up’
