Inspiration and encouragement from a writer whose only book (The Autobiography of Calvin Coolidge, 1929) came in at only 45,000 words:

"Nothing in this 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
