It's been said, "If you don't try, haven't you already failed?"
Enlightenment and transcendence seems like a shot in the dark often, but an effort, any effort, suddenly makes...the Impossible Posssible...
Finally this famous quote:
"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 are omnipotent."
Best wishes my friends,
