A good quote

A came across's like the saying the race doesn't go to the swiftest but to the one that keeps on running;

“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 are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”~ Calvin Coolidge

So true! Things like talent helps, but it will never get us all the way. Press on with stubborn persistence...
