Bertrand Russell – In science the man of real genius

Share this quote:
Bertrand RussellIn science the man of real genius is the man who invents a new method. The notable discoveries are often made by his successors, who can apply the method with fresh vigor, unimpaired by the previous labor of perfecting it; but the mental caliber of the thought required for their work, however brilliant, is not so great as that required by the first inventor of the method.

Bertrand Russell   (1872-1970)

Bill Gates – Our modern lifestyle is not a political creation

Share this quote:
Bill GatesOur modern lifestyle is not a political creation. Before 1700, everybody was poor as hell. Life was short and brutish. It wasn’t because we didn’t have good politicians; we had some really good politicians. But then we started inventing, electricity, steam engines, microprocessors, understanding genetics and medicine and things like that. Yes, stability and education are important. I’m not taking anything away from that, but innovation is the real driver of progress.

Thomas Edison – Invention success or failure

Share this quote:
It has been just so in all my inventions. The first step is an intuition–and comes with a burst, then difficulties arise. This thing gives out and then that –‘Bugs’–as such little faults and difficulties are called — show themselves and months of anxious watching. Study and labor are requisite before commercial success — or failure — is certainly reached.

Ricky Gervais – Bring something into the world

Share this quote:
You should bring something into the world that wasn’t in the world before. It doesn’t matter what that is. It doesn’t matter if it’s a table or a film or gardening – everyone should create. You should do something, then sit back and say, “I did that.” – Ricky Gervais
