The Place of Persistence
â€œNothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men 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 â€œPress Onâ€ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.â€
Quoted in The Australian 29th July 2006.
