“There is no disgrace in honest failure; there is disgrace in fearing to fail”

“The ordinary way of doing business is not the best way.  Our automobile was less complex than any other. We had no outside money in the concern.”

“The man who has the largest capacity for work and thought is the man who is bound to succeed.”

“When one speaks of increasing power, machinery, and industry there comes up a picture of a cold, metallic sort of world in which great factories will drive away the trees, the flowers, the birds, and the green fields. And that then we shall have a world composed of metal machines and human machines. With all of that I do not agree. I think that unless we know more about the machines and their use, unless we better understand the mechanical portion of life, we cannot have the time to enjoy the trees, and the birds, and the flowers, and the green fields.”
