Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.  The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”   —   Thomas A. Edison

(Hopefully, he means trying something just a little different each time!  Trying the exact same thing,  over and over again, and expecting a different result?  Well, that’s like . . . writing a daily blog.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Until a man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge.”   —   Thomas Alva Edison

(We might be close!  With 3-D printing, using various genetic material . . . we might be able to duplicate a blade of grass.  Hey, they can grow a human ear on the back of a lab rat these days!  Give me the natural stuff though!  No GMOs for me!  Nature rules, baby!  Be well and do good, friend.)   —   YUR

I have friends in overalls whose friendship I would not swap for the favor of the kings of the world.”   —   Thomas A. Edison

(Yeah, but when he made this statement he was likely wealthy enough to buy a few kings of the world!  Edison wasn’t born poor, but not exactly rich either.  He did his fair share of labor though, during his life, before becoming incredibly wealthy.  He knew that people who worked for a living possessed a certain kind of genuineness that money just can’t buy.  Be well, do good . . . and be genuine, friends.)   —   YUR

I have not failed.  I’ve just found ten thousand ways that won’t work.”   — Thomas Alva Edison
