      "Nothing i the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not. Nothing is more common than unsuccessfull men with talent. Genius will not. Unrewarded genius is almost proverb. Education will not. The world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent." - Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States of America.
