Hand-casted in the USA, this sterling silver wax seal necklace features the phrase “I’ve come so far I think I can run on just a little bit longer” on the front, and our Maritime USA logo stamp with .925 sterling silver marker on the back.
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. Spark positive action and use new words to create new habits!

Must go on
It's a beautiful piece and I love it. I had already purchased the brass tag with the same sentiment. I wear it to remind me that I have come this far and need to keep going. I lost my eldest son 6 years ago he was just 29. I miss him dearly he was to be married 2 weeks when he died in a diving accident. These words describe me, the way I feel each and everyday. Thank you for this.
