    Re: never...without

    Setting aside the typos, both are acceptable to me - I think #1 could be improved by saying "... no success without effort"

    Even so, I prefer #2

    Re: never...without

    N.A.Tchr.

    No. 1 would be better as:

    I firmly believe that there will be no success without effort.

    and a misplaced apostrophe in don't>>>>

    I firmly believe that if you don't work hard, you will not be successful.
