Persistence

I have this posted to the inside of my paint box.
I know its working.

PERSISTENCE

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.

~ Calvin Coolidge
