“If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” ~Thomas Edison
I love visiting museums. Whether I’m looking at a work of art or a scientific invention, I’m always astounded at what human beings are capable of creating and inventing. It’s also humbling to consider that some people manage to spin a 24-hour day into a miracle — while the rest of us waste the same amount of time doing … not so much.
Maybe we give up too easily. Thomas Edison insisted that the mother of invention is perseverance. Historians can’t agree on how many times he failed in his attempts to invent the light bulb — was it 1,000 or 10,000? The point is, he kept on trying, and we’re all incredibly grateful that he did. ~CL
