How to Solve the Problems of the Human Race

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 are omnipotent. The slogan “press-on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

- Calvin Coolidge, President of the United States
