    "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

    This quotation is a bit long, but I remind myself of this quotation daily because there so many times during the day when I don't want to finish something, but this quote presses me on. Persistence will take you places not talent alone.

    Thanks John. I've never been able to pin down where it came from, but my uncle said it one night at a family get together to teach us young people a lesson....He was always one for sayings and such. Good man.

    'Attitude is Everything'

    This quote was written on a poster on the wall of a leather tannery I worked at.

    I like it because, it's true in so many ways. Say, you have a set base, or a set way of looking at the world. Then, say you were thrown in to a place that humans would consider to be a "hell". Well, attitude is everything. I'll hold my morals to no end. If I was thrust into another dimension, I would be just fine, because I stand for what I believe, no matter what, where, or when.

    Even if you had no memory. I mean, picture you take a fire-fighter or a dedicated nurse, and you threw their essence back in time, say a thousand years ago, maybe even during a time of war. Say they didn't know the difference, because to them, they saw themselves as if they were always there in that time. Well, the essence of their actions, and their attitude towards it all, would be just the same. Somebody nice, would still offer unselfish help to others, and a total greedy jerk, would still be a total greedy jerk, even a thousand years ago. Or even a thousand years from now, if it was the same soul with the same attitude.

    But yeah, attitude is very important. And chutzpah is good too.

    “ Attitude is everything, let the stress begin!”

    Little does she know it inspires me too.

    Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.
    -Dale Carnegie

    Persistence and enthusiasm breeds talent and success.
    -Gwen

    This is one of the very few 'sure' things in life.
