A few quotes by former President Calvin Coolidge.
- "No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave."
- "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent cannot; nothing in the world 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."
- "All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work."
- "If I had permitted my failures, or what seemed to me at the time a lack of success, to discourage me I cannot see any way in which I would ever have made progress."
