“If we did all …

“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves” ~ Thomas Edison

Quite a thing for this man to say; the man who is the fourth most prolific inventor of all time, with a record for the most –1,093 to be exact– patents filed. He also said “I haven’t failed; I’ve found 10,000 ways that didn’t work”~ such a humble man was Thomas Edison. He had an amazing ability to see the good in every situation, and an amazingly positive attitude: “I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward”. Quite witty as well: “Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration”…It’s interesting that most of his known quotes, particularly the most well-known ones, are related in some way to success or failure.

  1. The quote “Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration” is really witty to the extent that such a genius must be sweating profusely, suffering not only from dehydration as a result but also in dire need of inspiration, being 99% deprived of it.
