If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.
– Thoreau (Philosopher, 1817-1862)
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people 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.
– Calvin Coolidge (30th US president, 1872-1933)
