Calvin Coolidge On Being Persistent
I think most of us see ourselves in something other than the persistent category.
A review of this is sometimes all it takes to remind us of what creates success.
- Nothing in the 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.
- The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
President Coolidge was looking at a bigger picture than most of us.
Before we can solve the problems of the human race - we need to solve our own problems.
The solution is the same.
