More From Calvin Coolidge
- "Little progress can be made by merely attempting to repress what is evil. Our great hope lies in developing what is good."
- "We need more of the Office Desk and less of the Show Window in politics. Let men in office substitute the midnight oil for the limelight."
- "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 failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."
