Not only will atomic power be released, but someday we will harness the rise and fall of the tides and imprison the rays of the sun.

It is very beautiful over there. (last words)

Large portions of life's disap...

Large portions of life's disappointments are individuals who did not understand that they were so near achievement when they surrendered.

Tomas Edison 442 quotes

The most necessary task of civ...

The most necessary task of civilization is to teach people how to think. It should be the primary purpose of our public schools. The mind of a child is naturally active, it develops through exercise. Give a child plenty of exercise, for body and brain. The trouble with our way of educating is that it does not give elasticity to the mind. It casts the brain into a mold. It insists that the child must accept. It does not encourage original thought or reasoning, and it lays more stress on memory than observation.

It is remarkable to what lengths people will go to avoid thought.

You can't realize your dreams unless you have one to begin with.

That is to say, under the old way any time we wish to add to the national wealth we are compelled to add to the national debt. Now, that is what Henry Ford wants to prevent. He thinks it is stupid, and so do I, that for the loan of $30,000,000 of their own money the people of the United States should be compelled to pay $66,000,000 - that is what it amounts to, with interest.

The very first thing an executive must have is a fine memory. Of course it does not follow that a man with a fine memory is necessarily a fine executive. But if he has the memory he has the first qualification, and if he has not the memory nothing else matters.

Education isn't play--and it can't be made to look like play. It is hard, hard work. But it can be made interesting work.

The stomach is the only part of man which can be fully satisfied. The yearning of man's brain for new knowledge and experience and for more pleasant and comfortable surroundings never can be completely met. It is an appetite which cannot be appeased.

There is great value in disaster. All our mistakes are burned up. Thank God we can start a new.

Invention is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration

The money one gets for selling one's soul is always spent in deadening one's conscience, so the net gain at the end of a lifetime is no greater than if the diabolic bargain had not been struck.

Genius defined: of inspiration 1% percent, of perspiration, 99%.

Barring serious accidents, if you are not preoccupied with worry and you work hard, you can look forward to a reasonably lengthy existence.... Its not the hard work that kills, its the worrying that kills.

Whatever the mind of man creates, should be controlled by man's character.

From his neck down a man is worth a couple of dollars a day, from his neck up he is worth anything that his brain can produce.

Tomas Edison 442 quotes

The only time I really become discouraged is when I think of all the things I would like to do and the little time I have in which to do them.

Even though I am nearly deaf, I seem to be gifted with a kind of inner hearing which enables me to detect sounds and noises which the ordinary person does not hear.
