Today’s Quote: Thomas Edison

Last week I had dinner with a man who helps companies move their operations off-shore.  I got a fascinating look into a world I know nothing about, an insight into why we have so few good jobs right now and a better understanding of how difficult it will be to get our economy back on track.  During our conversation this gentleman quoted Thomas Edison.  The quote was so pithy that I want to share it with you.

“The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it usually goes around wearing overalls looking like hard work.”

I just love that one and have been thinking about it for a week.

Thomas Edison said a few other insightful things.  Here are two more for you to ponder today.

“Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That’s not the place to become discouraged.”

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
