Thomas A. Edison Motivational Quotations:

  •  “There is no substitute for hard work.”

  •  “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.”

  •  “Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.”

  •  “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”

  • “There's a way to do it better - find it.”

  •  “Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

  •  “Your worth consists in what you are and not in what you have.”

  •  “I have friends in overalls whose friendship I would not swap for the favor of the kings of the world.”

  •  “Discontent is the first necessity of progress.”

  •  “There will one day spring from the brain of science a machine or force so fearful in its potentialities, so absolutely terrifying, that even man, the fighter, who will dare torture and death in order to inflict torture and death, will be appalled, and so abandon war forever.”

    Thomas A. Edison

  •  “I start where the last man left off.”

  •  “There is far more opportunity than there is ability.”

  •  “Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.”

  •  “Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.”

  •  “The best thinking has been done in solitude. The worst has been done in turmoil.”

  •  “I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us- everything that exists - proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.”

Thomas A. Edison

  •  “Great ideas originate in the muscles.”
  •  “I never did a day's work in my life. It was all fun.”

  •  “The value of an idea lies in the using of it.”

  •  “I find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in the work that precedes what the world calls success.”

  •  “To have a great idea, have a lot of them.”

  •  “Maturity is often more absurd than youth and very frequently is most unjust to youth.”

  •  “Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That's not the place to become discouraged.”

  •  “One might think that the money value of an invention constitutes its reward to the man who loves his work. But. I continue to find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in the work that precedes what the world calls success.”

  •  “Religion is all bunk.”

  •  “Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.”

  •  “Results! Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results. I know several thousand things that won't work.”

  •  “Be courageous. I have seen many depressions in business. Always America has emerged from these stronger and more prosperous. Be brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward!”

  •  “What a man's mind can create, man's character can control.”

  •  “I never did anything by accident, nor did any of my inventions come by accident; they came by work.”

  •  “We don't know a millionth of one percent about anything.”

  •  “Anything that won't sell, I don't want to invent. Its sale is proof of utility, and utility is success.”

  •  “When I have fully decided that a result is worth getting I go ahead of it and make trial after trial until it comes.”

  •  “I am proud of the fact that I never invented weapons to kill.”

  •  “Waste is worse than loss. The time is coming when every person who lays claim to ability will keep the question of waste before him constantly. The scope of thrift is limitless.”

  •  “It is astonishing what an effort it seems to be for many people to put their brains definitely and systematically to work.”

  •  “His genius he was quite content in one brief sentence to define; Of inspiration one percent, of perspiration, ninety nine.”

  •  “The body is a community made up of its innumerable cells or inhabitants.”

  •  “They say President Wilson has blundered. Perhaps he has, but I notice he usually blunders forward.”

  • “To my mind the old masters are not art; their value is in their scarcity.”
