You do something all day long don't you? Everyone does.
If you get up at 7 am and go to bed at 11 pm, you have put in 16 good hours, and it is certain that most people have been doing something all that time.
The only trouble is that they devote their time to a great many things, while I devote mine to only one.
If they took the time in question and applied it to one object, they would succeed.
The first requisite for success is the ability to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem incessantly without growing weary.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-08-21 (visit:611) - Thomas Edison
We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy--sun, wind and tide. I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-08-21 (visit:685) - Thomas Edison

Failure is really a matter of conceit. People don't work hard because, in their conceit, they imagine they'll succeed without ever making an effort. Most people believe that they'll wake up some day and find themselves rich. Actually, they've got it half right, because eventually they do wake up.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-08-21 (visit:874) - Thomas Edison
The most necessary task of civilization is to teach people how to think. It should be the primary purpose of our public schools. The mind of a child is naturally active, it develops through exercise. Give a child plenty of exercise, for body and brain. The trouble with our way of educating is that it does not give elasticity to the mind. It casts the brain into a mold. It insists that the child must accept. It does not encourage original thought or reasoning, and it lays more stress on memory than observation.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-08-21 (visit:730) - Thomas Edison

Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-08-21 (visit:621) - Thomas Edison
