As I have had big problems with technical issues on the blog today I figured a quote on persistence was apt, especially as in the end I worked out the issues myself:
Nothing in the world can take 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 failures.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
