Nothing in the world will take away persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than an unsuccessful man 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.


Calvin Coolidge

elected vice president and succeeded as 30th President of the United States when Harding died in 1923 (1872-1933)

    Nichts auf der Welt wird die Beharrlichkeit nehmen. Talent wird nicht; Nichts ist üblicher als ein erfolgloser Mann mit Talent. Genie wird nicht; Unbelohntes Genie ist fast ein Sprichwort. Bildung wird nicht; Die Welt ist voll von gebildeten Überresten. Beharrlichkeit und Entschlossenheit allein sind allmächtig.

    nada en el mundo quitará la perseverancia. el talento no lo hará; nada es más común que un fracasado hombre con talento. el genio no lo hará; El genio sin recompensa es casi un proverbio. la educación no lo hará; el mundo está lleno de vagabundos educados. La persistencia y la determinación son omnipotentes.

    rien au monde n'enlèvera la persévérance. le talent ne le sera pas; rien n'est plus commun qu'un homme talentueux qui ne réussit pas. le génie ne le fera pas; le génie sans récompense est presque un proverbe. l'éducation ne le sera pas; le monde est plein d'épaves instruites. la persévérance et la détermination seules sont omnipotentes.
