A Quote by Calvin Coolidge

                                                                      Persistence & Determination

"Nothing in the world can replace persistence. Talent will not; Nothing more common than the unsuccessful man 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." -- Calvin Coolidge.

A Quote by John Calvin Coolidge on character, knowledge, laws, needs, power, religion, and spirituality

We do not need more national development, we need more spiritual development. We do not need more intellectual power, we need more spiritual power. We do not need more knowledge, we need more character. We do not need more law, we need more religion. We do not need more of the things that are seen, we need more of the things that are unseen.
