    You forgot this one. I saw this quote hanging in a McDonald’s restaurant on Curacao in 1982.

    “Nothing in this 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.”

    Calvin Coolidge
