'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.

Eduction 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

If we can combine persistence with effortlessness we can really flourish.
