persistence (Perry)

"Persistence will do what cannot be achieved by force—persistence is the twin sister of excellence. Do not be afraid of struggle. Remember that what is a present struggle is a key to future happiness."  Elder L. Tom Perry, BYU Fireside, March 1990

Persistence (Calvin Coolidge)

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 failures.  Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. Calvin Coolidge
