Pablo Picasso once said, “It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

There is an old saying that with your hands in your pockets you cannot climb the ladder of success! Talent can do nothing without perseverance!

Behind every skill, there are hours of constant repetition

“The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense.”― Thomas A. Edison

Practice also makes perfect science. Einstein persisted and stayed with problems longer to make sure he found exactly what he was looking for. He once said “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

Later, at the scene of the blaze, Edison was quoted in The New York Times as saying, “Although I am over 67 years old, I’ll start all over again tomorrow.”
