Fools call wise men fools. A wise man never calls any man a fool.

Thomas Edison

Thomas Edison

Your worth consists in what you are and not in what you have.

A genius is often merely a talented person who has done all of his or her homework.

Thomas Edison

The man who doesn’t make up his mind to cultivate the habit of thinking misses the greatest pleasure in life.

Thomas Edison

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will instruct his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease. They may even discover the germ of old age.

Thomas Edison

We don’t know a millionth of one percent about anything.

Thomas Edison

Five percent of the people think; ten percent of the people think they think; and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.

Thomas Edison

The thing I lose patience with the most is the clock. Its hands move too fast.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

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.

Thomas Edison

Hell, there are no rules here – we’re trying to accomplish something.

Thomas Edison

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.

Thomas Edison

To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

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 Edison

Never get discouraged if you fail. Learn from it. Keep trying.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Thomas Edison

Time is really the only capital that any human being has and the thing that he can least afford to waste or lose.

Thomas Edison

I’ve never made a mistake. I’ve only learned from experience.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

What you are will show in what you do.

Thomas Edison

Good fortune often happens when opportunity meets with preparation.

Thomas Edison

Surprises and reverses can serve as an incentive for great accomplishment. There are no rules here, we’re just trying to accomplish something.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

To have a great idea, have a lot of them.

Thomas Edison

I find out what the world needs. Then I go ahead and try to invent it.

Thomas Edison

When I have finally decided that a result is worth getting, I go ahead on it and make trial after trial until it comes.

Thomas Edison

Success is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration!

Thomas Edison

There is no substitute for hard work.

Thomas Edison

I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that. I wish I had more years left.

Thomas Edison

It is very beautiful over there!

Thomas Edison

I do not believe in the God of the theologians; but that there is a Supreme Intelligence I do not doubt.

Thomas Edison

Thomas Edison

I never did a day’s work in my life. It was all fun.

Thomas Edison

The chief function of the body is to carry the brain around.

Thomas Edison

Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless.

Thomas Edison

I never view mistakes as failures. They are simply opportunities to find out what doesn’t work.

Thomas Edison

I readily absorb ideas from every source, frequently starting where the last person left off.

Thomas Edison

Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.

Thomas Edison

I have more respect for the fellow with a single idea who gets there than for the fellow with a thousand ideas who does nothing.

Thomas Edison

There’s a way to do it better – find it.

Thomas Edison

I believe that the science of chemistry alone almost proves the existence of an intelligent creator.

Thomas Edison

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!

Thomas Edison

I don’t live with the past; I am living for to-day and to-morrow.

Thomas Edison

We often miss opportunity because it’s dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Thomas Edison

Negative results are just what I want. They’re just as valuable to me as positive results. I can never find the thing that does the job best until I find the ones that don’t.

Thomas Edison

The value of an idea lies in the using of it.

Thomas Edison

I start where the last man left off.

Thomas Edison

Hard work, nothing to divert my thought, clear air and simple food made my life very pleasant.

Thomas Edison

I have far more respect for the person with a single idea who gets there than for the person with a thousand ideas who does nothing.

Thomas Edison

I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.

Thomas Edison

The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it usually goes around wearing overalls looking like hard work.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

Discontent is the first necessity of progress.

Thomas Edison

If parents pass enthusiasm along to their children, they will leave them an estate of incalculable value.

Thomas Edison

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

The best thinking has been done in solitude. The worst has been done in turmoil.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.

Thomas Edison

Vision without execution is hallucination.

Thomas Edison

What a man’s mind can create, man’s character should control.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

Personally, I enjoy working about 18 hours a day. Besides the short catnaps I take each day, I average about four to five hours of sleep per night.

Thomas Edison

A man’s best friend is a good wife.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

I didn’t fail 1000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1000 steps.

Thomas Edison

There are no rules here, we’re trying to accomplish something.

Thomas Edison

Someday, man will harness the rise and fall of the tides, imprison the power of the sun, and release atomic power.

Thomas Edison

It’s obvious that we don’t know one millionth of one percent about anything.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

People are not remembered by how few times they fail, but by how often they succeed. Every wrong step is another step forward.

Thomas Edison

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to try just one more time.

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

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

Thomas Edison

There is far more opportunity than there is ability.

Thomas Edison

I never did a day’s work in my life, it was all fun.

Thomas Edison

Not everything of value in life comes from books- experience the world.

Thomas Edison

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.

Thomas Edison

We shall have no better conditions in the future if we are satisfied with all those which we have at present.

Thomas Edison

Hell, there are no rules here – we’re trying to accomplish something.

Thomas Edison

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.

Thomas Edison

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.
