  Quotations - Persist  
[Quote No.53994] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[A true story - with a message about persisting past discouragement, rejection, criticism and other negatives - regardless of who the negatives come from whether from so-called authorities or those we are close to and care about and - regardless of what area of life whether it is in science, study, investing, business, inventing, sales, friendship, love, writing, etc. Perusing the biographies of successes will show that this trait is necessary. The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] LOUISA MAY ALCOTT: ‘Little Women’ would never have seen the light of day if Louisa May Alcott let rejection hold her back. The editor of Boston’s ‘The Atlantic’ magazine, James T. Fields, told Alcott’s father, ‘Tell Louisa to stick to her teaching; she can never succeed as a writer.’ As far as rejection goes, that one is pretty harsh! Fortunately, Louisa May Alcott never took it to heart. Instead, she told her father: ‘Tell him I will succeed as a writer, and some day I shall write for the Atlantic!’ Not long after, she did! And her book, ‘Little Women’ has sold millions and is still in print more than 140 years later." - Unknown

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] MADELEINE L’ENGLE: L'Engle completed the book, ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ by 1960, but 26 publishers rejected the story before Farrar, Straus and Giroux finally published it in 1962. The story was awarded the prestigious Newbery Medal the following year. ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ remains one of the best-selling children's books of all time having sold 8 million sales so far, with the story of precocious children and the magical world they discover even being adapted for television in 2001." - Unknown

His book is now regarded as a literary classic, but its word count would be a challenge for any editor at 1.5 million words – making it the longest novel in the history of literature." - Unknown

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] MARGARET MITCHELL: The only book that Margaret Mitchell ever published, ‘Gone With the Wind’ won her a Pulitzer Prize in 1937. Getting her book printed initially was not easy. The story of Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler, set in the South during the Civil War, was rejected by 38 publishers before it was printed. The 1939 movie made of Mitchell's love story, which starred Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, is the highest grossing Hollywood film of all time (adjusted for inflation). Her book has sold more 30 million copies." - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about persisting past discouragement, rejection, criticism and other negatives - regardless of who the negatives come from whether from so-called authorities or those we are close to and care about and - regardless of what area of life whether it is in science, study, investing, business, inventing, sales, friendship, love, writing, etc. Perusing the biographies of successes will show that this trait is necessary. The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] MARY SHELLEY: Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’ is considered a landmark work of romantic and gothic literature. But first she had to get it published, which was riddled with rejection: The novel was rejected by Percy Bysshe Shelley's publisher, Charles Ollier and by Byron's publisher John Murray. The 21-year-old Mary finally persuaded a small publishing company Lackington, Hughes, Harding, Mavor, & Jones, to take a chance on her debut. They agreed, but did not put her name on the cover, and only printed 500 copies in 1818. Booksellers only bought 25 of them. Despite a named credit in 1822, sales did not improve, until a 3rd edition was published by Henry Colburn & Richard Bentley in 1831. Word of mouth combined with some of the finest prose ever written in the genre, quickly saw It become a best-seller, which has stayed in print ever since." - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about persisting past discouragement, rejection, criticism and other negatives - regardless of who the negatives come from whether from so-called authorities or those we are close to and care about and - regardless of what area of life whether it is in science, study, investing, business, inventing, sales, friendship, love, writing, etc. Perusing the biographies of successes will show that this trait is necessary. The following success is just one example of a writer-author: MEG CABOT:] My first rejection letter came the following week. It was followed by two years of rejection letters from agents almost daily (not on Sundays or major holidays, when there was no mail delivery). I kept all my rejection letters in a US postal mail bag under my bed. I vowed when I got published I would a) sneer at everyone who'd rejected me, and b) show the bag to school kids and tell them never to give up on their dreams. I don't know why I didn't quit. Especially when I got such widely divergent rejection letters, everything from the word NO! scrawled across my own query letter and mailed back to me in my SASE, to offers from agents who wanted to help rewrite my book (I wasn't sending out query letters about just one book. I had letters out for several completed mystery series and four different historical romances) for a mere $500. I should mention that this bag, which I still have, turns out to be way too heavy to carry, so I have never actually taken it to any schools to show kids how they should never give up on their dreams. Although I do go to schools and tell them that. I just don't bring the bag as a visual aid. The truth is, I can't even lift it. [A year later her manuscript for ‘The Princess Diaries’ was accepted and it has now sold more than 15 million copies.]" - Meg Cabot

It was there that he wrote a novel, ‘The Notebook’, in his spare time. Two years later, after being turned down by 24 literary agents, he was discovered by literary agent Theresa Park, who picked ‘The Notebook’ out of her agency's slush pile, liked it, and offered to represent him. In October 1995, Park secured a $1 million advance for ‘The Notebook’ from Time Warner Book Group. The novel was published in October 1996 and made the New York Times best-seller list in its first week of release. It even became a film with Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling." - Unknown

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] PAT BARKER: English novelist, Pat Barker, knows a thing or two about rejection. The award-winning writer published her first novel 'Union Street' after facing ten years of rejection. The novel consisted of seven interlinked stories about English working class women whose lives are circumscribed by poverty and violence. For ten years, the manuscript was rejected by publishers as too ‘bleak and depressing'. In addition, Pat’s first three novels were never published. But according to her, that was the best thing that could’ve happened. She told 'The Guardian' in 2003: ‘[Those novels] didn't deserve to be [published]. I was being a sensitive lady novelist, which is not what I am. There's an earthiness and bawdiness in my voice.’ For Pat, rejection helped her learn, grow and find her voice. And once she found it, there was no stopping her." - Unknown

It was made into a movie in 1973, with a sound track by Neil Diamond. It has now sold more than 44 million copies." - Unknown

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] RICHARD DODDRIDGE BLACKMORE: His ‘Lorna Doone’ Devonshire-set romance of rivalry and revenge was turned down 18 times before being published in 1889. Today, Blackmore is considered one of the greatest British authors of the 19th century and there have been nearly a dozen big-screen or TV versions of this story." - Unknown

He submitted a copy to each, and also to anybody else in the business that he could cajole into reading it. Everyone rejected it, saying it had poor dialogue and characters, lacked a love interest, and that the public was not interested in prison stories. Eventually he got the film made and it earned more than 43 million dollars in the U.S. alone." - Unknown

If it hadn't been for his wife, Tabitha, the iconic image in the story of Carrie as a young girl in a prom dress covered in pig's blood would not exist because she retrieved the manuscript from the trash and encouraged him to resubmit it. Finally after a total of 30 rejections it was published. It sold 1 million copies in the first year alone and became a classic in the horror genre enjoying both film and TV adaptations. King has subsequently become one of the most well-known and prolific horror writers of our time, has sold over 350 million copies of his novels and short stories. Among his most famous novels are: 'Carrie', 'The Shining', and 'The Green Mile'." - Unknown

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] SYLVIA PLATH: When Sylvia Plath, the American poet, submitted the ‘The Bell Jar,’ she did so under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas. Apparently the Knopf editor who received her submission was not taken by her work. He responded, ‘I’m not sure what Heinemann’s sees in this first novel unless it is a kind of youthful American female brashness. But there certainly isn’t enough genuine talent for us to take notice.’ When Sylvia Plath revealed her true identity, the same editor decided to take another look at her work, although ultimately, it still landed in his rejection pile: ‘I have now re-read, or rather read more thoroughly, ’The Bell Jar’ with the knowledge that it is by Sylva Plath which has added considerably to its interest for it is obviously flagrantly autobiographical. But it still is not much of a novel. The trouble is that she has not succeeded in using her material in a novelistic way; there is no viewpoint, no sifting out of the experiences of being a Mademoiselle contest winner with the month in New York, the subsequent mental breakdown and suicide attempts, the brash loss of virginity at the end. One feels simply that Miss Plath is writing of them because [these] things did happen to her and the incidents are in themselves good for a story, but throw them together and they don’t necessarily add up to a novel...’ The manuscript was published in 1963. It has become famous and was adapted into a film." - Unknown

Heyerdahl wrote his book ‘Kon-Tiki: Across The Pacific’as the true story of his journey from Peru to Polynesia, but when he tried to get it published, he couldn't. One publisher asked him if anyone had drowned. When Heyerdahl said no, they rejected him on the grounds that the story wouldn't be very interesting. In 1953, after 20 rejections, 'Kon-Tiki' finally found a publisher -- and an audience. The book is now available in 66 languages.

Le Guin writes extremely well, but I'm sorry to have to say that on the basis of that one highly distinguishing quality alone I cannot make you an offer for the novel. The book is so endlessly complicated by details of reference and information, the interim legends become so much of a nuisance despite their relevance, that the very action of the story seems to me to become hopelessly bogged down and the book, eventually, unreadable. The whole is so dry and airless, so lacking in pace, that whatever drama and excitement the novel might have had is entirely dissipated by what does seem, a great deal of the time, to be extraneous material. When another publisher published it, it went on to win the 1969 Nebula Award for Best Novel and the 1970 Hugo Award. It became just the first of her many best-sellers, and is now regularly voted as the second best fantasy novel of all time, next to ‘The Lord of the Rings’." - Unknown

The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] WILLIAM GOLDING: ‘Lord of the Flies’ was initially rejected by twenty-one publishers. One even had the gall to say: ‘...an absurd and uninteresting fantasy which was rubbish and dull.’ Thankfully, a new editor at Faber & Faber took interest in the novel (after it was first rejected there by a different publisher) and went on to publish the book in 1954. The novel went on to win the praise of E. M. Forster, who said ‘‘Lord of the Flies’...the outstanding novel of its year.’ In 1991 it was adapted into a successful film. To date it has sold more than 15 million copies." - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about persisting past discouragement, rejection, criticism and other negatives - regardless of who the negatives come from whether from so-called authorities or those we are close to and care about and - regardless of what area of life whether it is in science, study, investing, business, inventing, sales, friendship, love, writing, etc. Perusing the biographies of successes will show that this trait is necessary. The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] WILLIAM FAULKNER: His first novel, ‘Sanctuary’ was initially rejected as ‘unpublishable.’ Eventually it found itself at the offices of publishers Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith instead, who immediately spotted the talent of its author, and in 1931 they propel him and his controversial debut novel, into the literary limelight. He goes on to become one of the most critically praised novelists of all time." - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about persisting past discouragement, rejection, criticism and other negatives - regardless of who the negatives come from whether from so-called authorities or those we are close to and care about and - regardless of what area of life whether it is in science, study, investing, business, inventing, sales, friendship, love, writing, etc. Perusing the biographies of successes will show that this trait is necessary. The following success is just one example of a writer-author:] WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS: Much of his earlier works were rejected for example his novel ‘Naked Lunch’. Excerpts from ‘Naked Lunch’ were first published in the United States in 1958. The novel was initially rejected by City Lights Books, the publisher of Ginsberg's Howl, and Olympia Press publisher Maurice Girodias, who had published English language novels in France that were controversial for their subjective views of sex and anti-social characters. But Allen Ginsberg worked to get excerpts published in Black Mountain Review and Chicago Review in 1958. Irving Rosenthal, student editor of Chicago Review, a quarterly journal partially subsidized by the university, promised to publish more excerpts from ‘Naked Lunch’, but he was fired from his position in 1958 after Chicago Daily News columnist Jack Mabley called the first excerpt obscene. Rosenthal went on to publish more in his newly created literary journal ‘Big Table No. 1’; however, these copies elicited such contempt, the editors were accused of sending obscene material through the United States Mail by the United States Postmaster General, who ruled that copies could not be mailed to subscribers. This controversy made ‘Naked Lunch’ interesting to Girodias again, and he published the novel in 1959. William S. Burroughs (also known as William Lee) became one of the most influential writers and primary figures of the Beat Generation." - Unknown

When it was rejected by Harper & Brothers, with the comment ‘You have no business being a writer and should give up.’ he lapsed into despair temporarily. Fortunately he chose to persist and get better, and soon his writing was being accepted. He went on to write many successful novels including ‘Riders of the Purple Sage’. To date he has sold over 250 million copies of his books." - Unknown

"[A true story: about persisting past rejection and not letting age be a barrier to pursuing your dream:] COLONEL SANDERS: The founder of KFC. He started his dream at 65 years old! He got a social security check for only $105 and was mad. Instead of complaining he did something about it. He thought restaurant owners would love his fried chicken recipe, use it, sales would increase, and he’d get a percentage of it. He drove around the country knocking on doors, sleeping in his car, wearing his white suit. Do you know how many times people said no till he got one yes? 1009 times!" - Unknown
