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. 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.

Agreed. By now I know that I am a slow learner but I have endurance. In the end, in most situations, I understand better and more than most. In analogy, if it's a 100m race, me the slow turtle end up at the 110th meter...

So when I hear folks saying they have this or that talent, I inevitably think - perhaps they should have wished for the power to persist instead.
