I give you two definitions:
Persist [per-sist] verb: To continue steadfastly or firmly in some state, purpose, course of action, or the like, especially in spite of opposition, remonstrance, etc.: to persist in working for world peace; to persist in unpopular political activities
“Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
-Albert Einstein (Supposedly; I wasn’t there.)
And all I’m saying is that sometimes, with revision, it can feel like a pretty darned fine line.
