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.
Sidenote: Persistence is the key to succeeding and advancing in life. All the education and skills mean nothing if you do not have the perseverence to keep pressing on. When someone tells you that you cannot do it, press on. When someone tells you that it will not work, press on. Only YOU can determine your success by persevering.
