    Sisu, Finnish determination.

    Ultimate determination ... Finnish word 'sisu'

  • ᖇΔᏐΔ'Ꮥ ᙢ☮J☮  (◕‿◕)

    Strong Crones have -- SISU. Finnish -- "ultimate determination, fortitude, persistence, carried to an unfathomable level, acting rationally in the face of adversity. However, the word is widely considered to lack a proper translation into any language. Sisu is defined by a long-term element in it; it is not momentary courage, but the ability to sustain an action against the odds. Deciding on a course of action and then sticking to that decision against repeated failures is sisu.

This is my favorite sisu tattoo I've found so far. I'm still working on design ideas, but if I were to keep it simple it would look a lot like this.

Finnish. Characters of a language. If one had to reduce a language to a single character that is mostly recognisable, what would it be?

It´s tough being FINNISH ... ;) Morning coffee

Just ask the kids though, all's well until Mom and Dad go into Avatar mode.

A beautiful picture of a Finnish lake. No wonder so many Finns settled in Northern Ontario.

This is old, but there's something I like about it.
