At the end of the nineteenth century, a boxer named “Gentlemen Jim” Corbett, held the heavyweight championship title for the world for five consecutive years. When someone asked him what the key to it was, he answered with these words: “Fight one more round. When your feet are so tired that you have to shuffle back to the center of the ring, fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black, fight one more round. When you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight one more round. Always remembering that the man who fights one more round is never whipped. . . . . He is always battling one more round.” Chuck Swindoll, The Tale of the Tardy Oxcart
