Thomas Edison

Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless.

    Definitely we learn things from our mistakes.I admire Thomas Edison and he had spent half his life in Ohio where I live. Smiles to you for a great quote, a lesson in Life.

  4. Faraday's Candle says:

    There are little lessons everywhere yo go.
    Enjoy your Sunday!

    Thomas Edison would liked this:
    “You have not failed until you quit trying.”

    ― Gordon B. Hinckley

  6. Faraday's Candle says:

    It does sound like Edison.

    It is all about working hard.

    Usually Plan A goes tits-up for me… but there are an additional 25 letters in the English alphabet 😉

  8. Faraday's Candle says:

    There are more letters indeed!

  9. That quote hit to home…. I have so many pieces of beadwork designs that started out being one way and ended up being something totally different. Love the quotes from Edison.
    Have fun girls!

  10. PS I visited his home in Ohio as a teen with my grandparents. Was over 45 years ago and I still remember some of it.

  11. Faraday's Candle says:

    It must have been a thrill seeing so many of the things he was working on.

  12. Faraday's Candle says:

    There are times that it is even better.
    Thanks for stopping by!

    A very true quote. So often experiments don’t give answers we anticipate. Finding out is a lot of what science is all about. I suppose we can also apply the quote to things in everyday life.

  26. Faraday's Candle says:

    This quote does apply to science and everyday life.
