Motivation Monday...The President Said

"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; un- rewarded 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. No person was ever honoured for what he received. Honour has been the reward for what he gave."  ~~Calvin Coolidge

Serendipity! We were just leaf peeping at Plymouth, Vermont, where Calvin Coolidge was born, and where he was sworn in as president in his front parlor.
