Call On His Birthday

*Lovely phone-able quotes for

Alexander Graham Bell's birthday

*found during my 'Bell' post. ;-)

'America is a country of inventors, and the greatest of inventors are the newspaper men'... (ha!)

Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.

Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand.
The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus.
(did he invent indoor tanning? ;-)

Great discoveries and improvements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds.

What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.

Bell designed & successfully tested the 1st wireless telephone
in 1880, a full 15 years before Marconi’s 'breakthru' in radio.

But nobody's perfect... Hate those airport lines?

Bell's partly to blame; also invented metal detectors.
