Coolidge, 30th American president, said:

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.

Einstein thought imagination is our biggest weapon, music is life, and curiosity is our biggest gift. Brazilian music-legend Gilberto, father of bossa nova,  claimed, to become successful, one needs to develop in isolation.
