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

Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.
-- Pudd'nhead Wilson (Following the Equator)
