On Persistence

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. Eduction alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. —- Calvin Coolidge 1872

But there are two kinds of persistence: if you're chasing a girl, and she's not interested, you can demonstrate persistence by continuing to chase her, or you can demonstrate persistence by giving up on her and going off to chase someone else. What matters is that you don't give up on girls entirely.
