Charles Swindoll tells a story of when he and his sister would go fishing with their dad and grandfather.

There was a man who sat on the pier with the last name of Kutasch. As the story goes, he was a very unusual man and fished accordingly. With the slightest bobble of his cork, he would jerk his line right out of the water so fast that if there had been a fish on it, the hooked would have ripped out the side of its mouth ... and had it survived, it would have certainly gotten away. For years, Charles and his sister watched this man fish and never did they see him catch one. But he never gave up and he always gave it his all. And so it came to be that whenever one of them was going through something or needed motivation the other told them to “Give it the Kutasch.”
