"The Memphis 13, the children who crossed the thresholds of first-grade classrooms on Oct. 3, 1961 to desegregate Memphis City Schools. They were chosen by the NAACP from a pool of about 200 potential students.”

“The secret of genius is focus.
If you can laser your attention on any subject or project,
it will reveal its blueprint to you.
George Washington Carver discovered 325 uses for the peanut
and 100 for the sweet potato!
Great geniuses are powerful focusers.
Many have been called eccentric or insane
because they put aside worldly concerns
for the sake of their music, art, architecture, drama, inventing, or writing.
But they are the individuals who change the world,
while those with scattered attention wade through mediocre lives. Geniuses don’t fritter their precious minds on mass trends.
They create the trends that alter the masses.”
~ Alan Cohen from Why Your Life Sucks
Focus. Focus. Focus.
"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
Persistence and determination
The slogan ‘press on’
has solved and always will
solve the problems
of the human race.”
