    Thomas A. Edison

  •  “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.”

  •  “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.”
