Persistence & Determination - Calvin Coolidge

If you have lived long enough to have experienced some highs and lows you might be able to appreciate the relevancy of this quote.  One of my favorites that I would like to share.  Persistence & Determination.  

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men 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.

Calvin Coolidge
