QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Those who have cultivated persistence seem to enjoy insurance against failure. No matter how many times they are defeated, they managed to move toward the top of the ladder… Those who pick themselves up after defeat and keep on trying, arrive… Those who can’t take it simply do not make the grade.”

- Napoleon Hill, as quoted by Dennis Kimbro
