This is an old writing that was passed on to me by a dear friend:
Nothing can take the place of persisitence
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. (anonymous)
(I adapted this last line to work better for myself): Persistence and Determination ‘and abiding faith in God’ alone are omnipotent.
This is writing that has served me well over the years. May you enjoy them also.
Merry Christmas 2015
