Frank Herbert's "Dune" is about the same, but with a little twist at the end..As the story goes, after receiving a rejection notice from every publishing house that printed fiction at the time.. He took a long shot and sent the manuscript out one more time, and yep they bought and published it. It is the first piece of fiction that Chilton's produced (yes, I mean 'Chilton' the one that prints Auto books).

Kurt -- "persevere" was intended to be a bit of a, heh, joke. Maybe too much of a "bit," eh?

"And the successful ones press onward until, ultimately, they persevere." Ordinarily I'd let that slide but in a lit blog? Begin with a conjunction and end with a redundancy? Maybe 'prevail' for 'persevere'? I think "Whatever the hell you want should you do." works for the Yodaism ;)
