Night Shift

“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 alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” ― Calvin Coolidge


  1. When I was working on my PhD and struggling with finding time to write my dissertation, this quotation hung over my workspace and I made myself read it daily. Thanks for the bittersweet memories, Maggie.

    1. I'm glad it helped you going those years back, and I'm glad it was a sweet memory. It serves as encouragement to me, often, too. Thanks so much for dropping by.

  2. What a beautiful quote and moment :)


Thank you for visiting Notes from Maggie's Farm. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
