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.

A tattered copy of this poem hung in my childhood home where I read it daily.  It still inspires me to do my best and never give up.
