Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

- Thomas A. Edison

I think this is very true, of lot of people who expect things just to happen for them. Just because it do not present to us as something easy to take, do not mean it is not worth to work for.

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.

journey well,

Yes, it seems that some people want to heal without putting the effort into it. That it is the responsibility of others to heal them, or something. Maybe that makes it easier to blame someone outside of themself if they are not sucessful in their healing as they wish to be.

Edison is another personal hero of mine. He WAS a very brilliant and industrious man. He was also a blatent patent thief with an ego to match God's in sheer enormousness (sp?). In other words, a true human being and a person after my own heart. An Irishman in attitude, if not birthright.

He also said something I carry with me everyday about persistence and failure. He was asked about having failed in his 10,000th attempt to create a filament electric light bulb. His response? "I have not failed. I've merely found 10,000 ways that will not work!"

Gotta love him!

Peace and love to all,
