"Press on, regardless.
It is a rule of life that has been a motto of my family for as long as I can remember, and has sustained me through times thick and times thin alike. The motto's provenance was an old lobster boat named Press On owned by my uncle, investment banker Clifton Armstrong Hipkins. On a little bridge was a framed copy of these words from President Calvin Coolidge:
Kind of says it all, no?
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."
