Persistence


{What’s another word for perseverance. It is persistence. How terribly necessary to be persistence in everyday life. As this poem says…}

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)
