“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more commonplace than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not: unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge

“But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”
Job 23:10 KJV
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.”
2 Corinthians 4:7-10 KJV
“Having accepted the Great Creator’s assignment and run with it, I had both the right and obligation to own – and to share – the work that resulted.”
