''I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.''
Booker T. Washington was a man who knew much about obstacles. Born a slave in Virginia, Washington and his family were emancipated after the Civil War and he went on to become a renowned educator and one of the most influential black people of his time. The quote featured on this magnet serves as an enduring reminder of the man's history and perseverance, and a photograph of Washington lends an additional personal, human element to the power of his words.
Display this magnet anywhere you want a small reminder of the importance of moving forward regardless of setbacks.
