Thomas Edison

  • Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.

  • Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.

  • I believe in the existence of a Supreme Intelligence pervading the Universe.

  • It is very beautiful over there!

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

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

  • Hell, there are no rules here — we're trying to accomplish something.

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

  • I find out what the world needs. Then, I go ahead and invent it.

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

  • Looking back to those times we cannot, without much reading, clearly gauge the sentiment of the Colonies.

  • I have never seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious ideas of heaven and hell, of future life for individuals, or of a personal God.

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

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

  • We really haven't got any great amount of data on the subject, and without data how can we reach any definite conclusions?
