HENRY FORD AND THOMAS EDISON – Detroit News Photography

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again.  This time more intelligently.”   —   Henry Ford

(Sounds like a version of a Thomas Edison quote!  It’s hard to tell who might’ve influenced the other.  Well, we know they were best buds!  And, both of them did so much to change the world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Maybe I’ll  post today’s Celebrity Cipher tomorrow, since my paper no longer carries the Sunday Cryptoquote!  We’ll see.   —   YUR

People who have no time don’t think.  The more you think, the more time you have.”   —   Henry Ford

(Hank may have hung with the best and the brightest, but thinking doesn’t make more time.  Planning, and sticking to a plan, can make your time more productive, but thinking will not produce more time.  So sayeth yer Uncle!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I invented nothing new; I simply assembled into a car the discoveries of other men.”   —   Henry Ford

(Humble?  Perhaps.  But, his innovation of the progressive assembly line revolutionized industry all over the world.  The years of the early 20th Century were heady times in the United States.  That’s when they started to become a world power.  And, these gentlemen had a little something to do with it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.”   —   Henry Ford

(Nope.  You gotta crack a few eggs.  You gotta get dirty.  You gotta do it!  Plans and pontification are all well and good.  But, we are judged by our deeds.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Time and money spent in helping men to do more for themselves is far better than mere giving.”   —   Henry Ford

(Kind of a play on the teaching a man to fish, rather than giving him a fish saying.  Job training, and on the job training, pays dividends for all involved.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Exercise is bunk.  If you are healthy, you don’t need it; if you are sick you shouldn’t take it.”   —   Henry Ford

(How many of you guys jumped all over EVERYONE as being the first word?  I never knew that EVERYONE and EXERCISE played out that way.  It made for a very messy solve, for me.  I usually like Henry Ford quotes, but this one is just junk!  I guess when you are uber rich you can get away with saying stupid stuff.  The Donald is reminding us of this everyday!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”   —   Henry Ford

Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement.”   —   Henry Ford

(So, never be afraid of trying something new, for fear of making mistakes.  In order to grow we all must learn from our mistakes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  This painting came up, unexpectedly, in the Zemanta gallery, but I’m glad that it did.  These dark specters could be past relatives or friends, or even past mistakes, influencing how and what she is thinking.  If nothing else, it beats a stodgy old portrait of Henry Ford!   —   YUR

(Sounds like there was a strong socialist side to Mr. Ford!  The words “socialist” and “socialism” have been heavily demonized by the conservative right, particularly over the last four years.  They’ve been bashing/demonizing the word “liberal” for a much longer time.  But, now that there is a so-called “liberal” in the White House, the right feels right at home dropping the “S” bomb at every proverbial drop of a hat.  Language is funny that way.  Connotations change.  Back in the ’60s and ’70s, with all the – still then – young Baby Boomers, and the prevalent “Hippy” mentality/movement, the word “conservative” was the word to use to insult someone.  It meant – implied actually – that you were a fuddy-duddy, reactionary, or a crank, who was incapable of change.  And, in terms of racial equality, it also implied you were likely a racist.  For the gender and sexual preference issues, it implied you were likely a “male chauvinist” – maybe even a misogynist – and a homophobe.  In those days, the wise republicans avoided that word like the plague!  Today, because of the resurgence of the right, the words “conservative” and “conservatism” are now worn as badges of honor.  We’re supposed to associate these words with responsibility, tradition and virtue.  The tables have been turned.  So, as times change language implications change.  Thinking people today don’t fear the “L” word and the “S” bomb, anymore than thinking people back then did the “C” word.  So don’t sweat it, folks.  It’s not the first time around for the demonization of socialism.  This kind of societal linguistic hysteria is impermanent.  Be well, do good . . . and think things through, friends.)   —   YUR

(Sorry, folks!  I just can’t seem to get any traction on this one today.  This could be one of the most quotable quotes of all time, but your uncle is just spinning his wheels.  Maybe the gears have stripped.  If you want to send some clues my way I wouldn’t object.  I’d rather not be given the entire answer though.  Thanks.)   — YUR

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.  Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”   — Henry Ford
