"Keep your face always toward the sunshine- and shadows will fall behind you."

Walt Whitman

"Nothing in the 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 alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

Calvin Coolidge
