Quote of Thr Week From Greg Bover

“Most people don’t recognize opportunity when it comes
because it wears overalls and it looks like work.”
–Thomas Alva Edison
1847-1931
 
Often praised as the pre-eminent inventor of the
modern technological age, the “Wizard of Menlo Park” was home-schooled
and a voracious reader. Beginning his working career as a telegraph
operator, he built his own laboratory for the exploration of electrical power
and went on to hold over a thousand patents. His inventions most famously
include the electric light bulb, the stock ticker and the phonograph.
His method of dogged trial and error, denigrated by his rival Tesla, is
reflected in his best known remark, “Genius is one percent inspiration, and
ninety-nine percent perspiration.”
