  • 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.
    –Calvin Coolidge

Perhaps it will make it onto the wall of a few other young aspiring basketball players too.
