I had this handwritten and pinned to my offfice wall. It makes me think.

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than the unsuccessful man 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.

Calvin Coolidge
Former President of the USA.

glad you ladies like what you read. It reminds me that some say "the race is not always to the swift but to those who keep running."
