Thomas Edison shares his words on Failure with Robert Vegas Bob Swetz

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty ONE Group 65491

Venetian Hotel Las Vegas Nevada


Failure is really a matter of conceit.

People don't work hard because, in their conceit,

they imagine they'll succeed without ever making an effort.

Most people believe that they'll wake some day and find themselves rich.

Actually, they've got it half right, because eventually they do wake up.

'Thomas Edison'

SVB, I like this quote and thanks for sharing with all of us. One important thing I really like about AR is all the cool things I learn from folks like you! 

Thanks for your comment and thinking about featring my post. Its kind of odd in some ways that AR can not fix this issue with featuring for Groups!

Edison was my childhood hero. I'm honored to live just a few miles from his home and labs in West Orange

Aloha Robert,

I prefer Telsa's genius over Edison but your point is well taken, Edison was a very clever man. The photo is evocative and enticing. Thanks for sharing

peace,

Aloha Bob,

Here is a link to the most balanced comparison I have read concerning the two inventors. Most people familiar with their rivalry favor Tesla over Edison, as Edison character is rather despicable. Edison Electrocuted to death a Circus Elephant in one of his notorious publicity stunts in an attempt to discredit Tesla, just one of many questionable and "shocking" acts - Enjoy.
