Earning A Livelihood



“The daily work of earning a livelihood affords particular satisfaction when it has been selected by free choice.. And yet as a path to happiness work is not valued very highly by persons. They do not run after it as they do after other opportunities for gratification.”

 

Sigmund Freud



 

Omnipotence



“Nothing in this 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.”

Calvin Coolidge
