Is it correct to use the phrase "he / she fights on" to say that a person is fighting / struggling for a cause?

  • I assume this "fighting" is effectively metaphoric (he/she isn't literally engaging in combat). Sometimes if you want to add a stronger nuance that the struggle is arduous and/or protracted and/or may never end successfully, you might be better using (also figurative) soldier, battle, etc. as the verb. – FumbleFingers Jan 28 '15 at 19:07

Yes! Pronouns can always be used for generalization.
