I'VE COME SO FAR Quote - Brass Coin Necklace


Part of our new 2021 Motivation collection.

Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the phrase “I’ve come so far I think I can run on just a little bit longer.”

This is a phrase said frequently by Dr. Dean Thompson of Presbyterian College, most often when he is encouraging his students to persevere through a writing assignment, an academic semester, or even through life itself. The quote is originally attributed to Mother Willie Mae Ford Smith, a Black gospel singer from Rolling Forks, Mississippi who rose to American musical fame late in her singing career. The quote can be found embedded in the liner notes of her 1984 LP, “I Am Bound for Canaan Land,” and reads as follows: “As she likes to sing, ‘I’ve come so far, I believe I can run on some more.’”

Whatever race you may be running, we hope that this phrase reminds you to look back on all the progress you’ve made so far and encourages you to continue on towards your goal, however small or large, short-term or ongoing. Remain steadfast, and stay the course!

Coin pendant is 1" in diameter.

Purchase this coin as a keychain instead of a necklace here.

Please note: All our brass pendants are raw brass, meaning they are not electroplated and will develop a beautiful patina over time. We recommend polishing it with a soft cloth to help keep your pendant's original shine if you prefer the bright metal look.

Bad choice in chain?

I love this pendent. I say it I bought it. The only bad thing is the chain that I picked turned my neck green. So now I need to find a new chain. Other then that great!

This necklace stays on my body 24/7. I bought the necklace when i was going through some really tough times and it made me feel good. First thing i do in the morning is read it, and it reminds me what i fighting for.

Great quality

I’m really happy with the quality of the piece as well as the chain and clasp. I think it looks even better in person and haven’t wanted to take it off since I got it!
