Someone once asked James J. Corbett (at that time heavyweight champion of the world) what was the most important thing a man must to to become a champion. He replied, "Fight one more round." The Duke of Wellington said that the British soldiers at the Battle of Waterloo were not any braver than Napoleon's soldiers, but they were brave for five minutes longer. The secret of success for the Christian is to fight one more round, to be brave for five minutes longer. It is the difference between defeat and victory. ~ A Treasury of Bible Illustrations (adapted)
