Quote: "Press On"

"Press on: 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."

[Calvin Coolidge]

PRESS ON PILGRIMS PRESS ON. PRESS ON THOSE WHO ARE SICK AND THOSE WHO ARE JUST SICK AND TIRED. PRESS ON DAY LABORERS. PRESS ON MIGRANT WORKERS. PRESS ON BOTH SOLDIERS AND PEACEMAKERS. PRESS ON SOMETIMES WORN OUT MOTHER EARTH. PRESS ON INMATES AND ADDICTS SEEKING FREEDOM. PRESS ON DREAMERS OF GOD'S DREAM. PRESS ON!

Why are you posting things that I think I need to hear?

Stupid synchronicity.

It's nice to see the talent part in context.

Of late I've come to respect the importance of experience, so all I can do is keep getting experience.

However, I wish I were as inspired as Tommy and Andrew! At the same time I think of today's dilber blog) and think, gee, maybe Trev is just reinforcing my beliefs!

So it's all good.
