A couple of sayings I have always remembered over my 72 years!

The first is anonymous but well worth acting by:


Excellence can be obtained if you:
  • Care more than others think is wise
  • Risk more than others think is safe
  • Dream more than others think is practical
  • Expect more than others think is possible


My second was by Calvin Coolidge 30th president of US (1872 - 1933)

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.

The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
