Quote of the Week

Image source: Wikipedia
 If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves. 
 -Thomas A. Edison 

As a scientist, inventor and businessman, Edison is responsible for over one thousand U.S. patents.  Home schooled by his mother, his work advanced communication, the motion picture camera, the light bulb and the concept of mass production.

Imagine if he had said "I can't do that" in his process of invention.  We may not be famous inventors, but we are all capable of amazing things.  Just say "Yes, I can!"


  1. Okay...I'm ready to astound myself! I think all inventors have to be very persistent people. They really have to believe in the "try, try, try AND try again" attitude.

    I did like this quote and your writeup about it. Thanks for sharing it:~)

  2. It's interesting to see how few of the great and famous men and women didn't go to traditional school. The ones that did often skipped school!

    Anybody can do anything if they want to.

    I follow your blog thanks to ExposeYourBlog!

  3. Sara- We should all have the "try and try again" attitude. I know that's easier said than done, but we can do whatever we set our minds to. So go astound yourself!

    Anji- I was surprised to read that he was home schooled. I guess formal education doesn't guarantee success and the lack of it doesn't mean failure.

  4. Meleah- I know you can. I can too!
