We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. 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 are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race

 Calvin Coolidge (American 30th President of the United States, 1872-1933)
