I spent the morning doing something I vowed never to do.
I researched Thomas Alva Edison with an open mind.
For all that his journey is remarkable, by the end of my research, I’m not sure where I stand on his value as a man or measure. He is so oft-quoted as a pinnacle of tenacity with such quotes as:
“I have not failed 700 times. I’ve succeeded in proving 700 ways how not to build a lightbulb.”
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. ”
