The quotable Edison by Thomas A Edison ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
From the Dust Jacket: The Quotable Edison offers a wealth of insightful, enlightening, and sometimes humorous comments and witticisms from Thomas Edison (1847-1931), a man famous for his dictum that "Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration." He seemed always ready with a clever word or phrase. On religion, "Satan is the scarecrow of the religious cornfield"; On the English, "The English are not an inventive people; they don't eat enough pie"; On the secret of his success, "I start where the last man left off"; On work, "I've been working two shifts most of my life. Lots of other men work two shifts too, but they devote the other one to poker"; On the law, "A lawsuit is the suicide of time"; On philosophy, "I believe that life, like matter, is indestructible"; On vacations, "Florida is about as near to heaven as any man can get"; On vice, "Whatever a man likes he will have a tendency to overdo". Variously called a "magician," the "Wizard of Menlo Park," and "the Napoleon of Science," he was a prolific inventor and the holder of hundreds of patents. But he was also a practical joker, a self-made man with a certain disdain for polite society, an ambitious explorer, and a public intellectual. By the age of 38, Edison was a world-famous celebrity, sought out by reporters eager for a scoop of just a comment. Even today, eighty years after his death, he remains one of the great scientific heroes of American and world history. The Quotable Edison brings the inventor to life like on other biography, allowing the man to speak in his own voice, including his reported final words: "It's very beautiful over there."
