Past former US President Calvin Coolidge is quoted as saying, "Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius or high intelligence will not; unrewarded genius is so common it is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of highly educated people from the finest schools, with all types of degrees and doctorates, who are unemployed or working in low paying menial jobs.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "PRESS ON" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race, as this one trait guarantees success."
