Great quote Bev!
My daughter gave me a pretty book for Christmas that is just blank pages, and I want to fill it with quotes that mean something to me. I will use this quote on the opening page. As far as I am concerned this is the absolute truth. It helps to have some of the other qualities he mentions but persistence and determination alone have gotten me to where I am now !Having happiness, peace and good health in ones final phase of life make it all worth while. Press on everyone!
"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"
