“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

You couldn't have chosen a more appropriate quotation for the picture. Beautiful, Eric ... and let me tell my students about "press(ing) on". :)

Very strong photo of iron bars. Yes, only persistence and determination can survived the test of time.
