“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

“What do you first do when you learn to swim? You make mistakes, do you not? 
And what happens? You make other mistakes, and when you have made all the 
mistakes you possibly can without drowning - and some of them many times over - 
what do you find? That you can swim? Well - life is just the same as learning to swim! 
Do not be afraid of making mistakes, for there is no other way of learning how to live!”
 Alfred Adler

“Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, 
discouragement, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong
soul from the weak”
 Thomas Carlyle

“Some guys they just give up living, others start dying little by little piece by piece,
some guys come home from work and wash up, and go racing in the streets."
Bruce Springsteen

“So as sure as the sun will shine,
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine
And then the harder they come the harder they'll fall, one and all.”
Jimmy Cliff
