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 alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

--Calvin Coolidge

How strange!

When I read your post about working hours and hours, I looked up at the door to my office, where upon is posted the very quote you just mentioned!

It's true.

No way does Coolidge use the word derelict. No way.

You know you're right. I looked it up again, and the phrase is actually "the world is full of educated shitmongers."

I am such a retard sometimes!
