Sitting at the island counter-top in the frat pad, eating, writing, blogging, reading (the Last of the Mohicans), I notice a page of paper, stained and wrinkled; obviously been there for awhile. It's one of those "adages" that someone found inspiring and printed it off and set on the counter as a reminder to themselves to be diligent in pursuing their goal-s.
I think it's worth pondering:
Nothing in the world will take the place
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 derelicts.
PERSISTENCE AND DETERMINATION ALONE
What say you?
