“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. Up until now, in medical school, this has been used to remind us medical student though not using such complete line, but somehow, near to it.
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*
