"Press On"

During his tenure or afterward, President Calvin Coolidge was never know as neither a great U.S. President nor a mental giant. Although in the Senate, Coolidge was known as a eloquent speaker and a "can do" legislator. But, he seemed to backslide as a President. An analogy would be a great college football player washing out in the pros. During his presidency, he keep his house in order and applied his "can do" when he could. I came across a great quote from him.

" Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than an unsuccessful man with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded Genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; this world is full of educated deralicts. Presistence and determination who are omnipotent. The Slogan "Press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
Calvin Coolidge

In these times of have our legal jobs sent overseas. Our Pre-Law deams of being a Big-Law attorney dashed. Any Paralegal, CPA, or Public Notrey practicing Law and getting away with it. The ABA and State bars not looking out for our interests. Sometimes, you just don't want to get out of bed in the morning. What's the point? You and I have no choice but to "Press On." These problems may work themselves out or they won't and things will collapse. Just "Press On."

The ABA does not care about the average working class lawyer. They just want your CLE fees and bar dues. Like you, I also detest empty slogans and meaningless platitudes.
