"Anyone who has gumption knows what it is, and anyone who hasn't can never know what it is. So there is no need of defining it."

L. M. Montgomery (1874-1942)

Quitters and whiners are prime examples of individuals who lack gumption.

What a great word this is!

Wonderful circular definitions - and as such are meaningless.

Just like the justice who said they can't define pornography, but they know it when they see it.

A mystical quality you have or don't - what, like the force in Star Wars?

I won't try to define it. Instead I prefer things like honor, and character, and personal accountability. Courage and responsibility.

Leave gumption and grit to the John Wayne movies.
