Every time you tear a leaf off a calendar, you present a new place for new ideas and progress.

My interest is in the future because I am going to spend the rest of my life there.
If you want to kill any idea in the world, get a committee working on it.
The biggest job we have is to teach a newly hired employee how to fail intelligently. We have to train him to experiment over and over and to keep on trying and failing until he learns what will work.
An inventor fails 999 times, and if he succeeds once, hes in. He treats his failures simply as practice shots.
My definition of an educated man is the fellow who knows the right thing to do at the time it has to be done. You can be sincere and still be stupid.
People think of the inventor as a screwball, but no one ever asks the inventor what he thinks of other people.
We need to teach the highly educated man that it is not a disgrace to fail and that he must analyze every failure to find its cause. He must learn how to fail intelligently, for failing is one of the greatest arts in the world.
A person must have a certain amount of intelligent ignorance to get anywhere.
We often say that the biggest job we have is to teach a newly hired employee to fail intelligently... to experiment over and over again and to keep on trying and failing until he learns what will work.
In America we can say what we think, and even if we cant think, we can say it anyhow.
If you have always done it that way, it is probably wrong.
