Fav Quote Friday: The Value Of Persistance...

"There are no shortcuts to anyplace worth going."

~Beverly Sills

Do you find this to true?
What are your thoughts on Beverly's quote?


  1. Stephanie,
    Have you seen this quote before? I have seen it a number of times over the years, and I looked it up a little while ago to share with you. I was surprised to find it attributed to Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States.

    “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.”
