Method is more important than strength, when you wish to control your enemies. By dropping golden beads near a snake, a crow once managed To have a passerby kill the snake for the beads.
A problem well defined is a problem half solved.
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people 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
