“The harder I train, the quicker I get,
the quicker I get, the slower the game,
the slower the game, the more plays I make,
the more plays I make, the more attention I get,
the more attention I get, the more they try to stop me,
the more they try to stop me, the harder I train.”
“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 will not. The world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
I really don’t know who wrote this quote. I wish I did so I could give him or her credit. This wisdom applies whatever you are doing in life. See if you agree:
“A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.” – Author Unknown
