Everybody starts out an Acorn….

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistance. 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. Persistance and determination alone are omnipotent.      Calvin Coolidge

Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.      Julie Andrews

You get knocked down enough,  and you’ll find its a experience that’ll make you damn near unbreakable. And by the time you succeed, you’ll find that’s the real success; knowing you can take the hit and get back up.      Sheila Follman

It’s always impossible until it is done.      Nelson Mandela

Money grows on the tree of Persistance.      Japanese Proverb

The greatest Oak was once a little nut who held its ground.      Author Unknown
