Perseverance is the virtue that takes you from Ambition to Legacy, from having big dreams to making your mark on the world. It is keeping going when things get tough, doing the right thing even when it's not the easy thing, believing spring will come when all you see is cold and rain. Perseverance is scholarship without the glamour, kindness without the plaudits - it's keeping on keeping on and is particularly needed in the cold and dark of Resilience term.
