Some quotes about inventing

Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door. Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

There have been three great inventions since the beginning of time: fire, the wheel, and central banking  Will Rogers

 

One might think that the money value of an invention constitutes its reward to the man who loves his work. But… I continue to find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in the work that precedes what the world calls success. Thomas A. Edison

 

If nobody else is going to invent a dishwashing machine, I’ll do it myself. Josephine Cochrane, who tired of her servants breaking her expensive china, invented the modern dishwasher in 1886,

 

I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success… Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.  Nikola Tesla

 

All of the biggest technological inventions created by man – the airplane, the automobile, the computer – says little about his intelligence, but speaks volumes about his laziness. Mark Kennedy

 

Necessity, the mother of invention.  George Farquhar

 

Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship… the act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth. Peter Drucker

 

Always remember that someone, somewhere is making a product that will make your product obsolete. Georges Doriot

 

Let’s drive not just breakthroughs in new products, but new ways to give more and more people access to these inventions and their benefits. This is a broad and important mission, and I believe we all have a part to play in it. Bill Gates 

 

Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it. Steve Jobs
