Press On

February 9, 2010

Tough day today.  When I am feeling  a little defeated, I re-read a little 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

    It’s always a pleasure to see this great quote of Calvin Coolidge get a little more play. His words are meant to inspire, as I understand they do you. In that spirit, press on, over all adversity!
