"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.

Talent will not;
nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.

Genius will not;
unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not;
the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

The slogan 'press on' has solved,
and always will solve,
the problems of the human race."

- Calvin Coolidge
