Google Celebrates Edison’s Inventions

A big part of Enjoying Life is enjoying the comforts we have. And, for the most part, I think we take many of them for granted.

Google paid tribute today to Thomas Edison, who is widely regarded as one of the most successful inventors in history. He has over 1000 patents in the USA alone.

Some of his most famous inventions were the motion picture camera, the phonograph, and, of course, the light bulb!   Life definitely would not have been as comfortable without his scientific work and his determination to never give up!

Some of his famous, inspirational quotes include the following:

  • Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
  • I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.
  • If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.
