Inspirational Sayings and Notable Quotes

It is not the critic who counts...

"It is not the critic who counts, not  the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of  deeds might have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is  actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and  blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again;  who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends  himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high  achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,  so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who  know neither victory or defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt
26th President of USA (1901 – 1909

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence

“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.”

Calvin Coolidge
30th President of USA (1872 - 1933)
