Favorite Quotes: Volume IX

Continuing with our presidential theme . . . here’s a quote from a former President that might as well have been a Producer, because he hit it right on the head.

Nothing in the 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 are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
– Calvin Coolidge

  • God bless you, Ken! Truer words were never spoken. One of my closest business associates always says, “Give me a mediocre idea with someone who passionately believes in it, over a great idea with no one championing it.” (I’m paraphrasing.)
    Keep up the good words!
