I was looking up a quote from someone else the other day and came across this quote which I have always liked and was surprised to note that it comes from Calvin Coolidge.
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 July 4, 1872 – January 5, 1933 was the 30th President of the US. He was serving as Vice President under the man whose name is on the lips of every schoolchild in American such is his fame:Warren Gamaliel Harding.
