Lynn's "Inspiration" quote for Day 10 (in her daily email messages to each of us) really resonated with me. The heart of this quote has always been one of my favorites - but I had not known the attribution. Nice to see the whole thing, in context. THANKS, Lynn!
"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 alone are omnipotent. The slogan, 'press on' has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race."
I suppose the quote is so meaningful because that tends to be how I work … I slug along, but keep at it. "Persistence and determination are omnipotent" were my hallmarks in my work life - I had this posted wherever I worked. I still believe in it.
Thanks, again, Lynn, for the continued encouragement!!
Families are Forever! ;-)
