There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.
– Jane Austen –
I promise I shall never give up, and that I’ll die yelling and laughing, and that until then I’ll rush around this world I insist is holy and pull at everyone’s lapel and make them confess to me and to all.
– Jack Kerouac –
It gives me great pleasure indeed to see the stubbornness of an incorrigible nonconformist warmly acclaimed.
– Albert Einstein –
