If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.

Toni Morrison

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not. There is nothing 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.

Joe Strummer
