This famous quotation on persistence comes from Calvin Coolidge, and is illustrated with a composited image of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome by Michelangelo. Historical information is written out in calligraphy in an architectural window detail from Michelangelo’s design for the Farnese Palace at lower left. Sculpted tiles by Antonio del Pontasieve, 1513, were designed after drawings by Michelangelo and form the decorative square designs at the corners of the print.
