  1. I remember this! I still like the second and third ones by Churchill and Edison. I know I’ve probably said it to often, but I think that if desire is king then perseverance is queen!

  2. The quote I enjoyed rather surprised me. “Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and without it nothing great was ever achieved.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
