edison was a hero in many ways, not least of which was his thinking. telsa is one of my favorite early 20th century thinkers who was close in time to edison. however, the quote you gave from edison is too true. truth is in the doing, not the abstract.
- It is gift, and gift will find its way
- I inherit through my choice. I build through my affirmation. It is through my freedom that I nurture, or fade into autonomy
- I was not given to serve life, but to embrace it
