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.
- Calvin Coolidge

Nothing happens until something moves.
- Albert Einstein

The sea does not reward those who
are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient.
To dig for treasures shows not only
impatience and greed,but lack of faith.
Patience and faith is what the sea teaches.
- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The biggest mistake people make in life is NOT
making a living at doing what they most enjoy.
- Malcolm S. Forbes

We act as though comfort and luxury
were the chief requirements of life.
All that we need to make us happy is
something to be enthusiastic about.
- Albert Einstein

I once thought that if I could ask God one question,
I would ask how the universe began,
because once I knew that, all the rest is simply equations.
But as I got older I became less concerned with how the universe began. Rather, I would want to know why he started the universe. For once I knew that answer, then I would know the purpose of my own life.
- Albert Einstein
