Was Bob Goff acting on what Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said to do?
It sure sounds like it.
I mean he might not have knocked on the door every day – but he did wait outside it.
Just one more passage about grit.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said, “Perseverance is the great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.”
