Stick to your task 'til it sticks to you;
Beginners are many, but enders are few.
Honor, power, place and praise
Will come, in time, to the one who stays.

Stick to your task 'til it sticks to you;
Bend at it, sweat at it, smile at it, too.
For out of the bend and the sweat and the smile
Will come life's victories, after awhile.

This poem—a favorite of his—was quoted by President Thomas S. Monson in a CES Fireside Feb. 7, 1999
