PERSISTENCE = TRUE GRIT


PERSISTENCE
To continue steadily and firmly in the pursuit of any course commenced;
to continue in the face of some amount of opposition; to persevere; to endure…


Nothing in the world
Can take the place of Persistence.
Talent will not;
Nothing is more commonplace
Than unsuccessful men (and women) 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-

True. One small, persistent step takes us on the journey.
