2. Never give up. This timeless counsel comes from the 30th President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, and it is this:
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.
Never give up, give in, or punk out. That one was from me.
