Persistence

Press on.

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 alone will not;

the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence

and

Determination

alone

are

Omnipotent.

- Benjamin Franklin
