Blog Quotes #574 & 575...

Today, a double dose of Mr Thomas Edison.. 

Here's Blog Quote #574...
"I start where other men leave off."
-Thomas Edison-

Edison is trying to let us all know that in life, usually the hard part starts after you have 'failed.' In this definition of failed--  what IS being stated, is that you just didn't accomplish your goal, and it's time to try something else. It's not time to give up-- for that, would be failure.

Edison knew a little bit about 'failure.' He is quoted as saying "I have not failed, I have just found over 10,000 ways that won't work." This was on his way to discovering the light bulb.  When all was said and done, the genius inventor-- is credited to one-thousand-and- ninety three (1093) patents. Holy guacamole! 

Blog quote #575...
"I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded-- is another step forward."
-Thomas Edison-

There is a man who isn't afraid to jump in, try different things, tweak, twist, turn, and try all sorts of stuff, until the right connection is made, or formula is found.
Perhaps we can learn a thing or two, from Mr Edison?

That's my view...what say you?
