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.
I wish each of you a Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah. May your holiday season be full of love and cheer (not too much holiday cheer though). Special thanks to all the first response personnel and people int he armed forces.
