Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.

The above quotation is very ear-tingling during childhood, elementary and junior high years. In fact, personally, mum used to remind me, being herself a teacher, with such.

It was Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931), who popularized such lines which became his long-life motto, and even living beliefs to everybody, especially those geniuses, including those feeling genius and the like. *kidding*
