Three great friends: Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Harvey Firestone in front of their homes in Ft. Myers and Miami.
Henry Ford dressed as a cowboy with Thomas Edison, 1923
Over a year ago, when we were in Ft Myers for Aunt Helen's funeral, Marcy and I found a great restaurant. As we were leaving she said, "Too bad we found this restaurant now when we are never coming back to this town." Last weekend we went to an exhibition of a steam powered lumber mill, and there were also several Ford Model A and Model T cars. I told Jade about the Henry Ford and Thomas Edison estates and how interesting they were. He was very interested and wants to visit them. Moral of this story? Be careful when you use the word "never." :D
Heart and Soul is on air with end of month inspiration. Do you feel like giving up on everything...? Consider this first... Thomas Edison's teachers said he was "too stupid to learn anything." He was fired from his first two jobs for being "non-productive." As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, "How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?" Edison replied, I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps. Never Quit! Albert Einstein did not speak until he was 4-years-old and did not read until he was 7. His parents thought he was "sub-normal," and one of his teachers described him as "mentally slow, unsociable, and adrift forever in foolish dreams." He was expelled from school and was refused admittance to the Zurich Polytechnic School. He did eventually learn to speak and read. Even to do a little math. Never Quit! Henry Ford failed and went broke five times before he succeeded. Never Quit! When Bell telephone w .. ...

preparing for a Beuger performance with a luncheon outing to Hotel Adlon - very curious. maybe long tones and luxury hotels mix well. "The Adlon opened on October 23, 1907 with the Kaiser, his wife, and many other notables in attendance. It quickly became the social center of Berlin. As the rooms in the Stadtschloss were cold and drafty, the Kaiser paid an annual retainer to keep suites available for his guests. Likewise the Foreign Office used the Adlon for accommodation during state visits, with guests including Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala. Notable guests of the early years included industrialists such as Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and John D. Rockefeller, as well as politicians like Walter Rathenau, Gustav Stresemann and the French prime minister Aristide Briand. Many wealthy Berliners lived for extended periods of time in the hotel, while its ballrooms hosted official government functions and society events. After World War I and the abdication of the Kaiser, ...

1/6/14 New York. Up early and head for the bus station. An exciting day for Bob he's visiting the home and laborartory of his idol Thomas Edison. First bus took us to Penn station Newark New Jersey. Next bus to West Orange. Got off at Main st right outside the old Edison factory. We are early and it's not open yet. We visit a drug store just up the street and get some 7up. The visitors centre is now open and there are no crowds (of course.) First attraction is Edisons home, a 15 minute walk away. It is still in a gated community called Llewellyn Park with a security guard and gates. We're the only people walking! We pass lots of millionaires homes on the way. We see wild squirrels and deer on the roadside. The guided tour of the Edison house starts soon but meanwhile we looked at his garage building. It has 3 Electric Cars and a 1922 Ford model T. Edison invented a new kind of battery that is used in the Electric Cars. Edisons friend Henry Ford gave him a car every year but only his wife Mina drives.
We need to destroy - not reform - the U.S. eugenics school system the Rockefeller, Carnegie, and Ford Foundations concocted to enslave the masses. It's time to bring back the days of Admiral Farragut, who commanded his first ship at 12 years old. Of course, John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, and Cornelius Vanderbilt were all elementary school dropouts. Henry Ford dropped out of school at 15. Thomas Edison only had 3 months of official schooling. The list goes on and on. John Taylor Gatto wrote ... "As schooling encroaches further and further into family and personal life, monopolizing the development of mind and character, children must become human resources at the disposal of whatever form of governance is dominant at the moment. That in turn confers a huge advantage on the leadership of the moment, allowing it to successfully reproduce itself and foreclose the strength of its competitors."

FORD'S SHIP * This ship originally transported iron and coal for Ford Motor Company; The interior was designed by Henry Ford, and Thomas Edison was a passenger. The ship was decommissioned in 1981 after nearly 50 years of service. The ship's forecastle was removed, and then that portion of the boat was positioned on a great piece of waterfront property, with its bow extending out over Lake Erie for a water-going effect, and then used by its owner as a vacation home. From the time it was built in 1924, the boat was also used to transport coal and iron ore across the American lakes. After being decommissioned in 1981 it was left to rust for four years before the front part of the ship was removed and perched on top of the 18-foot cliff shown below to serve as a really lovely home. The Benson Ford was originally a cargo ship for the Ford Motor Company, but has been converted into a vacation home perched solidly above Lake Erie . Looking across the bow, which hangs 18 feet above the Lake , it gives one the .. ...
“Stay on your game and keep going for your dreams because the world needs that special gift that only you have” (Marie Forleo) “If you can clearly articulate the dream or the goal, start” (Simon Sinek) “Start with your whys” (Simon Sinek) “This quote is very motivating for me. Start looking for your whys. It’s such an exciting journey! “It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste. “ (Henry Ford) “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” (Thomas A.

In a bygone era, this country prospered and people became millionaires. The Rockefellers, the Vanderbilts, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, the list goes on. In fact, when John D. Rockefeller controlled Standard Oil, he was not only the richest man on the planet, but his company and it's subsidiaries accounted for nearly 20% of the entire gross national product of the United States. They employed ten of thousands of workers. Henry Ford made it possible through his company for his employees to afford one of his cars. He paid them a wage that made it possible for his workers to live a middle class existence. The Rockefellers spent tens of millions of dollars during the Great Depression constructing public places such as Rockefeller Center in Mid-town Manhattan that provided thousands of out-of-work Americans jobs that not only feed their families, but provided artists a place to ply their trade that can still be enjoyed to this day. In today's America the story is different. You have billionaires who o ...

While it took Henry Ford many attempts and countless years to create the affordable automobile and found the Ford Motor Company. Today we want everything yesterday, and technology has complied!

Some people are saying " i will leave this country and go to USA, DUBI, GHANA, etc but hear me today friends, BELIEVE IN YOUR GOD! IGNORE YOUR ENVIRONMENT. In life winning doesn't start around you!

Thomas Edison was white, But Dr Phillip Emeagwali ( the African - Nigerian American super celebrated computer scientist that discovered the fastest computer in the United States me America years ago) is black!

Fort Myers was the site of a U S Army fort during the Seminole Indian wars in the early 1800s. The fort was taken down and the wood recycled into the buildings of downtown Fort Myers. In 1885 Thomas Edison made Fort Myers his winter home luring his buddy Henry Ford to build an estate next door.

Our friend Russ Williams from the Passkeys Foundation suggests how valuable it would be to have a FAILURE SEMINAR. “Come and listen and learn from some of the biggest failures in American life. Learn from the best who have failed miserably. Headline Presenters - Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Mohandas Gandhi, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, Michael Jordan, J. K. Rowling, Walt Disney, etc. Everyone of these talented professionals confronted disastrous failures.” “Failure is an event, never a person” William Brown Persevere… There is always a correlation between sustained effort and success Parents and coaches raising strong kids!
I recently came across a study that examined the lives of 755 famous people who either dropped out of grade school or high school. The list included 25 billionaires, 8 U.S. Presidents, 10 Nobel Prize winners, 8 Olympic medal winners, 63 Oscar winners, 55 best-selling authors, and 31 who had been Knighted. With names like Thomas Edison, Andrew Carnegie, Richard Branson, Henry Ford, Walt Disney, Will Rogers, and Joseph Pulitzer, being an academic failure still left you in the company of some incredible luminaries. Going one step further, adding the names of well-known college dropouts to the list, names like Steve Jobs, Frank Lloyd Wright, Bill Gates, Buckminster Fuller, Larry Ellison, Howard Hughes, Michael Dell, Ted Turner, Paul Allen, Mark Zuckerberg, and virtually every famous actor, actress, and director in Hollywood, and the dropout list becomes a venerable Who’s Who of American culture. People who are destined to be successful have something to prove. In their mind, college is just another barrier ...
If someone says it is not possible, and then 100 people say it, and then a thousand... and then everyone, does it make it true? According to almost every super successful person, it actually meant that it would be worth proving it was possible. Some names that come to mind... Abraham Lincoln, Beethoven, Ben Carson, Olaudah Equiano, Fauja Singh, Helen Keller, Henry Ford, Leonardo Da Vinci, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Thomas Edison, Marie Curie, Martin Luther King, Jr., Paul Revere, Harriet Tubman, J.K. Rowling, Malala Yousafzai, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks, Steve Jobs, Jesse Owens, Stephen Hawking, Winston Churchill ... and so many more. Making a difference in the world is not possible, unless you believe it is... and don't give up. ~ Ken Rochon

Three of the wealthiest and best-known businessmen in the United States helped to boost the popularity of recreational vehicles. Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Harvey Firestone, together with naturalist John Burroughs, went on annual camping trips for ten years beginning in 1913.
Arvis Wright check in (and attempted review of a performing arts event): Bob Teague, accomplished guitarist, composer and songwriter played pre-show music and accompanied Arvis Wright singing 'God Bless The Child.' Monday, February 24 - 6:30pm - This program (reading excerpts from the script "Uncommon Friends" by Dr. Jamie Cutler) truly depicted the 'way things were' in a very far reaching fashion, i.e., discussion of future inventions - which were 'to come' rather than were existing in the timeline of the characters presented tonight. Yet, this program clearly presented that such men as Lewis Howard Latimer had many obstacles. Thus the program spelled out how people of color were prevented from getting the credit for what they were capable of (and did contribute) to the modernization of the United States in historical venues. Whereas the portrayals of Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and first wife, Mina, were presented with precision in fashion of the times they lived AND the story of this program is: 'when y ...
Successful people don't do great things,they only do small things in a great way. One day a partially deaf four year old kid came home with a note in his pocket from his teacher, "Your Tommy is too stupid to learn, get him out of the school." His mother read the note and answered, "My Tommy is not stupid to learn, I will teach him myself." And that Tommy grew up to be the great Thomas Edison. Thomas Edison had only three months of formal schooling and he was partially deaf. Henry Ford forgot to put the reverse gear in the first car he made.Do you consider these people failures? They succeeded in spite of problems, not in the absence of them. But to the outside world, it appears as though they just got lucky."" All success stories are stories of great failures. The only difference is that every time they failed, they bounced back. This is called failing forward, rather than backward. You learn and move forward. Learn from your failure and keep moving. ""Below are more examples of the failures of ...

The chuckwagon was not only a means to feed the cowboys who worked the cattle drives and round-ups, but also influenced things to come. Henry Ford built the first auto truck that he personally used with dear friends, Thomas Edison, John Burroughs, and Harvey Firestone camping in Florida. Other manufactures would begin creating accessories, camping gear to go with Ford's Model T. The tail gating party would begin at the birth of cowboys who worked the cattle drives. Pictured are some Auto Coolers that were designed from the simplicity of the chuck box.
Everyone needs to be valued. Everyone needs to be appreciated. Every person needs that blessing. Thomas Edison encouraged Henry Ford . Mr. Ford was introduced to him as "the man that is trying to build a car that runs on gasoline" When Edison heard this his face brightened up. He hit his fist on the table and said what a brilliant idea you have come up with Mr. Ford you are going to make history. Encouragement from Edison is what made Ford keep trying and not give up. Who will you encourage today? Have a great Monday

If you’re here, you probably love a great steak. But here are a few fun tidbits you might not know about our beloved beef. Read on! History Although meat has been grilled since shortly after the discovery of fire–some 500,000 years ago–it did not become a popular pastime until the 1950s. Time Frame Depending on the cut of the steak, it may take between 10 and 30 minutes to cook on the grill; thicker cuts, such as filet mignon and T-bone, generally take the most time to grill. Benefits Grilling is an exceptionally healthy method of cooking steak and other kinds of meat because excess fat drains away rather than being consumed. Fun Fact The charcoal briquette was invented in 1920 by Henry Ford, with help from Thomas Edison. Considerations If you want to produce “grill marks” when making steak, avoid moving the steak except to turn it–only once–during the course of cooking.
MY DEAR STUDENT: In response to your last night frustrated conversation As someone said " I was born genius...education destroyed me". Remember, class room is NOT the only place where you learn, I am giving you a list of dropped outs and their contribution to the human civilization in different fields.

For example, Paul Allen and Bill Gates dropped out of college to found microsoft, Karl Rove dropped out of college, Woody Allen dropped out; Alexander Bell, Ray Bradbury, Samuel Clemens (Also known as Mark Twain- quit school at 13), Grover Cleveland, Charles Dickins, Michael Dell, Walt Disney, Thomas Edison, William Faulkner, Fl Scott Fitzgerald, Henry Ford, Robert Frost, Ernest Hemingway, Peter Jennings,Estee Lauder, Ralph Lauren, John D.

“I can’t.” In the words of Henry Ford, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” And this is a good thing too. It means you are in control. Alternative: “I can and I am, starting now.” – Remember that it’s all in the mind. If Helen Keller, Mahatma Gandhi, Beethoven, Thomas Edison, Mother Teresa, Michael Phelps and countless others through the course of history could do it, why can’t you? The answer is: You can if you are willing to put forth the time and effort to grow beyond the barriers that stand in front of you.

I often study successful people; it's my idea of fun. John D. Rockefeller rose up from nothing. His father was a shady fella who often left the family for extended periods of time. Mr. Rockefeller was a prudent business man and gave millions away to charity. Although he learned some lessons the hard way, still he persevered. His winter home was just down the street from my home in Florida, it's now a museum. He entertained Henry Ford and Thomas Edison there. He also lived here during his last years and died in this house. Considering how much money he had, the house is rather modest. He bought it for a $1 plus Standard Oil stock after staying at the hotel across the street and being charged double what everyone else was paying. When he inquired why, they told him, "Because he could afford it." That's when he bought the house. It's a beautiful piece of property and one of my favorite "thinking spots."
The Law of Success (originally The Law of Success in 16 Lessons) is the title of Napoleon Hill’s first book set, published initially in 1928 as an multi-volume correspondence course and later more compact formats in recent years. The work was originally commissioned at the request of Andrew Carnegie at the conclusion of a multi-day interview with Hill, and was based upon interviews of over 100 American millionaires across nearly 20 years, including such self-made industrial giants as Henry Ford, J. P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Alexander Graham Bell, and Thomas Edison. The Law of Success was first used as a lecture, and was delivered by its author in practically every city and in many smaller localities, throughout the United States over a period of more than seven years.

In our culture, any book with the words 'rich' or 'success' in the title has a better than average chance of selling well; money and external achievement are basic to our time, as rank and honor were to the Middle Ages. A compelling title might explain initial rushes to buy a book, but in the last 60 years, the world has bought over 15 million copies of Think and Grow Rich. Why? Hill refused to accept that success was the domain of luck or background or the gods, and wanted to provide a concrete plan for success that depended entirely on us. The book also sold because it was not simply Hill's dreamed-up ideas, but a distillation of the success secrets of hundreds of America's most successful men (not many female tycoons in the 1930s), beginning with his patron, steel baron Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie had given Hill letters of introduction to the likes of Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and FW Woolworth, and he would spend 20 years synthesizing their experience and insights. Hill's mission was simply to know 'how ...

Past Jobs of Famous Entrepreneurs Before becoming a billionaire investor, Warren Buffett was a newspaper boy. Before launching her cooking empire, Martha Stewart was a stockbroker. Before inventing the lightbulb, Thomas Edison sold candy on a train. And that's just the beginning. Andrew Carnegie, Oprah Winfrey, Henry Ford and so many other wealthy American entrepreneurs worked unexpected jobs before pursuing their own business endeavors. What about you?
The Real Leadership Lessons of Steve Jobs - Walter Isaacson His saga is the entrepreneurial creation myth writ large: Steve Jobs cofounded Apple in his parents’ garage in 1976, was ousted in 1985, returned to rescue it from near bankruptcy in 1997, and by the time he died, in October 2011, had built it into the world’s most valuable company. Along the way he helped to transform seven industries: personal computing, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, retail stores, and digital publishing. He thus belongs in the pantheon of America’s great innovators, along with Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Walt Disney. None of these men was a saint, but long after their personalities are forgotten, history will remember how they applied imagination to technology and business. In the months since my biography of Jobs came out, countless commentators have tried to draw management lessons from it. Some of those readers have been insightful, but I think that many of them (especially those with no experie ...
Oct 21, 1929 the 50th birthday of the incandescent light bulb, Henry Ford throws a big party to celebrate the dedication of his new Thomas Edison Institute in Dearborn, Michigan. Everybody who was anybody was there: John D. Rockefeller Jr., Charles Schwab, Otto H. Kahn, Walter Chrysler, Marie Curie, Will Rogers, President Herbert Hoover—and, of course, the guest of honor, Thomas Edison himself. At the time, the Edison Institute was still relatively small. It consisted of just two buildings, both of which Henry Ford had moved from Menlo Park, New Jersey and re-constructed to look just as they had in 1879: Edison's laboratory and the boarding-house where he had lived while he perfected his invention. By the time the Institute opened to the public in 1933, however, it had grown much more elaborate and today the Henry Ford Museum (renamed after Ford's death in 1947) is one of the largest and best-known museums in the country.

Failure: The Back Door to Success "What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead. Men of God in days of old were famous for their faith."1 As it has been said, "If you want to hit Home Runs you've got to be willing to strike out." Top batters in baseball have all struck out many times. And most people who have succeeded in life have also struck out many times. For example, Walt Disney went broke seven times and had a nervous breakdown before he became successful. At age 40 Henry Ford was broke. Enrico Caruso, who became one of the world's greatest tenors, was advised by his voice teacher to quit singing because he failed so many times to carry his high notes. Thomas Edison failed more than 6,000 times before he could get an electric light bulb to work, but when a child, one of his teachers once called him a dunce. Abraham Lincoln was well known for his many failures ...
If you are still uncertain about whether or not we are evolving, just look at the number of autistic children that are born every year. In his book "The Last Oracle," about autistic savants, James Rollins uses two very special quotes. One he was granted the use of by Dr. Temple Grandin who said: "If by some magic, autism had been eradicated from the face of the earth, then men would still be socializing in front of a wood fire at the entrance to a cave." The other quote is from Socrates about the Oracle of Delphi: "The greatest blessings granted to mankind come by way of madness, which is a divine gift." Rollins comments "It makes one wonder if such unique minds truly guided the path of mankind's history. To answer that, I'll end with a partial list of famous historical figures who are believed to have displayed some level of autistic tendencies."

Fort Myers is popular for its beaches, fishing, shopping – and the opportunity to learn about two of the nation’s most famed inventors and business leaders. You and your family can experience one-on-one natural encounters, play on top-notch beaches and treat yourselves to endless family-friendly attractions, restaurants and resorts in Fort Myers and surrounding areas along southwest Florida’s sunny Gulf Coast. And don’t miss the Thomas Edison and Henry Ford winter estates. Back in 1916, Ford bought land in downtown Fort Myers, next door to Edison, his mentor. Now, both estates serve as museums that honor their founders and remind all of us about what they overcame and what they accomplished.
to some people who may think I am just too much for them, Visionary people: Adjective (esp. of a person) Thinking about or planning the future with imagination or wisdom: "a visionary leader". Noun A person with ORIGINAL IDEAS about what the future will or could be like. Can you recognize one if you see one? A Visionary... will challenge your traditional thinking; will also make you uncomfortable since they tend to move people out of their comfort zone; will question everything since they are great Change Agents; will be non-compromised since their only alliance is to their vision; will be unlikely because you may think you know them well, but then again you don’t; will be passionate about their purpose …you can either work together with them, or get out of the way. Examples of visionary people: Henry Ford, John Rockefeller, Thomas Edison, Sam Walton, Bill Gates, etc. …and do you think these people didn’t find any opposition with their ideas? Or do you think these people didn’t storm any tradit ...
Drove past the Tavern today and just gasped that the owner would be so cold and willing to allow a bit of History to tragically end due to his grotesque neglect. Sad, when so many are trying and willing to help! "The Old Tavern is the oldest surviving tavern in Ohio. Located in Unionville, the Old Tavern began as a log cabin in 1798. Over the years, the tavern expanded, providing fine accommodations and food for travelers in northeastern Ohio. Among the tavern's more famous guests were Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. During the early 1800s, the Old Tavern served as a stop for stagecoaches traveling between Buffalo, New York and Cleveland, Ohio. During the 1840s and 1850s, the tavern's owners also provided runaway slaves, who were traveling along the Underground Railroad, with a safe haven. Ohio was the home of many safe houses for African Americans, as runaway slaves could not truly gain their freedom unless they left the United States of America entirely. Many runaways fled to Canada, seeking freedom. The ...
A shorter , simpler, revised version of "Independence Day"Independence Day Would slavery still exist if Abraham Lincoln had never been born? Would America have even “gained its’ independence” to end slavery if George Washington, or Paul Revere, or one of the two other men, William Dawes and Samuel Prescott, who rode with Revere that night to help announce, “The British Are Coming!” had never been born? It was three God had purposed to ride. It was not two nor one as history indicates that Paul Revere rode alone, but it took three to send out a successful call to arms. Would we have electricity or the light bulb had Thomas Edison or Benjamin Franklin not been born, and would we still be riding horse drawn carriages if Henry Ford not been born? Referring to I Cor.12:28 God “had” a calling and a purpose for every person, apostles, prophet,-“preachers”, teacher, healings-”nurses and doctor”, helps-“social worker”, governments-“elected officials”, diversities of tongues- “transl ...
The Daily Rant. by DC At the end of the 19th century, the three most powerful and richest men the world has ever seen, that had more to do with shaping American politics and world economy than anyone, were John D. Rockefeller (Standard Oil), Andrew Carnegie (US Steel and Westinghouse), and JP Morgan (General Electric, controlled banks, and railroads, he had Thomas Edison in his pocket). These guys controlled the oil, steel mills, mining, banks, electric power, and railroads in the US. Even automobile production thru Henry Ford as Ford needed the steel, oil, electric power and railroads to operate. They were the Tri-Lateral Commission and “owned” America. All three were at one time the richest men the world has ever seen. Rockefeller was worth, adjusted for inflation, 700 Billion dollars. Slim, Gates, Buffet and others weren’t worth 1/10th of that. In fact, the top thirty richest people in the world today aren’t worth as much as Rockefeller was. And the other two weren’t far behind. Becau ...
It does not take a good formal education to make money or become rich and financially free. Many successful pple have left school without a degree. Pple like Thomas Edison, founder of General Electric, Henry Ford, founder Ford Motor Co.

A HARD WORK You have to take responsibility for the realization of your goal and start to work hard towards it's achievement. The success secret of all wealthy and successful people is hidden in their work. Do you remember Thomas Edison and his 10 unsuccessful attempts, that leads to the wonderful discovery; Henri Ford, who invented an automobile, the team of experts worked day-by-day on T8 model more than a year; and other well-known people. Nobody achieved success lying on the bed. Secret of success consists in the hard work. Work and only laborious and hard work led them to their goals. They overcame a great number of obstacles, that later helped them to make new and new wonderful inventions. And nobody was afraid to overwork. Watch the successful people, they work much more time with bigger efforts then mediocre people. They take a rest very rarely and relax much quicker and effectively. Hard work gives them strength. This is the main secret of hard work. Though they work more, they are get tired much ...
Every destiny needs a mentor. Jesus said, "As my father hath sent me so I send you". Someone had already been at the destination you are aiming at. It was the approval of Thomas Edison during a mere discussion that sent Henry Ford on his path of making possible the T-model car. Walking in the path of a mentor generates your future. My one time leader said to me, 'A generation without the elders is a lost generation'. You need someone who is one step or million steps ahead of you. Find one today and surrender your pride.
If the thing you wish to do is right, and you believe in it, go ahead and do it! Put your dream across, and never mind what "they" say if you meet with temporary defeat, for "they," perhaps, do not know that EVERY FAILURE BRINGS WITH IT THE SEED OF AN EQUIVALENT SUCCESS. Henry Ford, poor and uneducated, dreamed of a horseless carriage, went to work with what tools he possessed, without waiting for opportunity to favor him, and now evidence of his dream belts the entire earth. He has put more wheels into operation than any man who ever lived, because he was not afraid to back his dreams. Thomas Edison dreamed of a lamp that could be operated by electricity, began where he stood to put his dream into action, and despite more than ten thousand failures, he stood by that dream until he made it a physical reality. Practical dreamers DO NOT QUIT! Whelan dreamed of a chain of cigar stores, transformed his dream into action, and now the United Cigar Stores occupy the best corners in America. Lincoln dreamed of fr ...
Spent a good chunk of time at the Henry Ford Estate today, it's amazing how I used to view Henry Ford and how most people view him and how he was much more than and had a bigger dream than what he accomplished. I have a different perspective on him now, his legacy is shifted for me. I want to film the place, and share how much creativity, design and thought went into it... it's amazing. It's a little piece of sustainable heaven, eco-friendly and all (Was) He was like Elon Musk, only much richer (back then) It's inspiring to be there... His friends, Thomas Edison (not so cool in my mind), Harvey Firestone (Firestone Tires Founder) etc... All have been to this estate and frequented apparently. My only question is I wonder if Nikola Tesla has been there... wonder if Henry Ford and him were friends.
What do Abraham Lincoln, Henry Ford, Henry John Heinz, Walt Disney, Milton Hershey, Soichiro Honda, Akio Morita, Bill Gates, Harland David Sanders, and Donald Trump have in common? They were all failures at some time in their life. For most, the climb to the top is plagued with adversity, stress, and a sense of self-doubt. Albert Einstein couldn’t speak until he was four or write until he was seven, making his teachers think he was handicapped. He was even expelled from school but ended up winning the Nobel Prize for physics. Thomas Edison was considered too stupid to do anything and was fired from the first few jobs he took. Oprah Winfrey was an abused child and got fired from her first TV job because “she was unfit to TV,” and Michael Jordan couldn’t even make his school basketball team. Yes it’s a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll, as the lyrics of ACDC go. The old adage “good judgment comes from experience and most of that comes from making bad judgments,” makes sense – ...
10 SECRETS SCHOOL DOESN'T TEACH YOU ABOUT MONEY. . If you're one of those who love to ask some good questions, you should have asked yourself these three questions: first, Why are most professors poor after reading till their hair become gray? Second, why is it that many rich men in the world didn't even finish school? Third, why are P.hd holders now begging to work as drivers for Dangote? May i tell you the truth? There are certain SECRETS about riches you can never learn in school, even as a professor. Johann Rupert dropped out of school, and now, the richest man in South Africa . Does Dangote become the richest African because he is a professor? Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Mark Zukerberg, Etc didn't finish school. yet, they become richest of men. Why? The SECRETS. Today, we have millions of graduates who are poor and unemployed. Why will someone spend 15, 20 years in class room and stil be poor? Because the SeCrEtS of wealth is not taught in the class room. What ...
“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve" is one of Napoleon Hill’s hallmark expressions. In his lifetime, Hill interviewed many of the most famous people of the time, including Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, George Eastman, Henry Ford, Elmer Gates, F.W. Woolworth, William Wrigley Jr., John Wanamaker, William Jennings Bryan, Joseph Stalin, Theodore Roosevelt, William H. Taft, Woodrow Wilson, and Jennings Randolph. It is clear that Hill’s work applies in all generations and is indeed timeless. I am reminded of that well known biblical passage. “What has been will be again what has been done will be done again there is nothing new under the sun”. Ecclesiastes 1:9 With one’s mind any empire can be built and with one’s mind an empire can be destroyed. A burning desire is the starting point of all accomplishment. The motivation to succeed comes from the burning desire to achieve a purpose. Powerful lessons can be derived from a seemingly harmless magnifyin ...
Now on History Channel...remarkable...Thomas Edison, John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford and J.P. Morgan...They turn America to Industrial superpower...but what's the price...
We need to teach our youth to think; not group think. Some of the most successful people never went to college. Such as Ben Franklin, John D. Rockefeller Sr., Henry Ford, Frank Lloyd Wright, Milton Hershey, Walt Disney, Thomas Edison, Wolfgang Puck, Dave Thomas, Abe Lincoln, The Wright Brothers, just to name a few recognizable names.
Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Alexander Graham Bell, Abraham Lincoln, Julius Caesar and Marie Pierre it's not amazing to history!
It was desire that energised Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Bill Gate, Aliko Dangote, Mike Adenuga, Thomas Slim etc to be great men in life.
Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Walt Disney, Mark Zuckerberg, Rupert Murdoc and Warren Buffet all enjoy complete physical freedom from work. They are free to work or not work. They do not work hard for money but money and the people are working hard for them. They pay less taxes than highly educated employees yet have no degree.
What's the secret to making a fortune? Is it education? Hard work? Connections? Or just good luck? According to a growing body of research, all of those things help. But there's another factor that matters a whole lot more... Making a fortune requires imagination. Now when I say imagination, I don't mean wishful thinking. You know, "visualize what you want in your mind's eye, and then you'll get it!" You and I both know that's pure bull. What I mean is... imagining a different world. A world almost like the one we live in now... but a little better. Maybe a lot better. That's what great businessmen like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Steve Jobs did to make their billions. It's also what great investors like Peter Lynch and Warren Buffett have always done. Enjoy your weekend!
Abraham Lincoln, Bill Gates, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Mark Zuckerberg, Benjamnin Franklin, Thomas Edison & Steve Jobs had no college degree. Like Amazing Facts in the world.
It was the White Race who produced men like Columbus who crossed the unknown Atlantic; men like Magellan who first circumnavigated the globe; men like Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Velazquez, Bernini, Rubens, Raphael and thousands of other geniuses who created beautiful and exquisite productions in the fields of sculpture and painting; geniuses like Beethoven, Bach, Wagner and Verdi who created beautiful music; men like James Watt who invented the steam engine; men like Daimler who invented and built the reciprocating internal combustion engine; production geniuses like Henry Ford, inventors like Thomas Edison; such a prodigal genius as Nikola Tesla in the field of physics and electricity; literary geniuses like Shakespeare, Goethe and thousands of others, untold geniuses in the fields of mathematics, in the fields of chemistry and physics.
Yoshiro Okabe (岡部 芳郎 Okabe Yoshiro?, April 9, 1884–March 17, 1945) was the only Japanese assistant of Thomas Edison. He worked at Menlo Park from 1904 to 1914. After returning to Japan, Okabe made the short sound film Katyusha (leading actress:Sumako Matsui) using Edison's kinetoscope. He died in 1945 in Kobe in a U.S. air strike.  Life Okabe was appointed reserve second sublieutenant of the Imperial Japanese Navy and became the first mate on an English ship. He caught typhoid fever while the ship was at anchor in New York. After recovering, he remained in the US and got a job at the Edison Institute in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Okabe was not only an engineer for Edison, but also protected him with his Jujitsu. Edison liked him very much, and brought him camping with Henry Ford and Harvey Samuel Firestone. Okabe had connections with business, political and noble society in Japan. Viscount Shibusawa Eiichi met Okabe in Menlo Park, in 1909. Baron Okura Kihachiro also supported Okabe in i ...

Life is full of challenges and obstacles. It is human nature, many times we know we should not give up but we find it hard to stay positive and optimistic. Words of encouragement can help to relieve stress and boost our morale. Below are my favorite encouragement quotes, I hope these help to make you feel a lot more confident in your ability to achieve your dreams. Don’t give up! Did you know that Thomas Edison tried over 2000 materials before he found one that he could make the light bulb? At one point, there was a fire accident and his lab was destroyed completely. He started rebuilding the lab the next day and kept going. Abraham Lincoln is in our hearts, one of the greatest presidents but we rarely know that he faced many failures and defeat throughout his life: born into poverty, twice failed in business, lost eight elections and suffered a nervous breakdown. “When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” Henry Ford “One ha ...
GET INSPIRED AND BE MOVE WITH SAMUEL. THE POWER OF CREATIVE THINKING.Estracts from my coming book Thinking is one of the characteristics of a wealthy soul as it has many times plunged some into an unending search for, why achieve greatness. Some are born great, some have greatness thrust upon them and others achieve greatness. In my study it has glaring that the men that achieve greatness are the ones that value it the most and they are the ones society pay attention to; to learn what it takes to succeed. People like Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Barack Obama, Rev Sam Adeyemi, Thomas Edison, Philip Chukwurah Emeagwali, Henry Ford, Pastor Oyedipo, Ali Baba, and lot more all these people are people with different achievers and they are still being celebrated till today. People who don’t develop and practice good thinking usually find themselves at the mercy of circumstances or other people’s thoughts. They’re unable to solve problems. They find themselv ...
Establishing A Purpose by Foster Hibbard The System for guaranteed goal achievement provided in this book evolves from the experiences and teaching of Andrew Carnegie, the world's first billionaire, and from the teachings of Carnegie's protege', Napoleon Hill, my teacher, and the father of motivation here in America. Napoleon Hill spent twenty years interviewing over 500 of the most amazing human beings who were living here in America during the early two decades of the century. His list included people like Henry Ford, William Wrigley, John Wanamaker, James Hill, Statler, Curtis, Eastman, Teddy Roosevelt, Jennings Bryan, Charles Schwab, John D. Rockefeller, Thomas Edison, Woolworth, Dollar, Woodrow Wilson, William Howard Taft, Clarence Darrow, Luther Burbank, J. Pierpont Morgan and Harvey Firestone. Over 500 people of that caliber!

Robert Kiyosaki , Napoleon Hill, Warren Buffet, ) Christopher Michael Langan. And many more have written or talked about possibilities that minority can be part of the majority. Mr. Kiyosaki shows us how to use break away from (work slave mentalities ), Mr. Napoleon Hill has not only taken part of great American History as one of the greatest minds of all times but has been of big influence to many great men; Thomas Edison, Henry Ford,John D. Rockefeller and left behind the greatest treasure of all time the tool that every business person can use and create great things. Yet as a "lower" and "Middle" Class communities we rather keep on working endless hours getting talked down to, being told what to do when to do it and how to do it. FB we are smart we are great we can also achieve riches open your eyes see that their is greener grass put aside childish games (for a bit) have an open mind. our team has been putting to practice these tools left behind by these great man and its so exiting to see results!!!
Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.” It has been well researched that the group of people we surround ourselves with have the power to influence our thoughts, feelings and actions --and ultimately, the results we create in life. Your success is directly related to the amount of support that you create and accept in your life. One strategy to create this kind of support, as used by Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and many other great dream builders, is to form a Master Mind group. Be sure that you have a group of people in your life who believe in you, and who call you into your greatness. Choose those people who believe in your possibilities, who stand for your excellence and help you remember how powerful you are when you forget.

You'll never have real success with anything until you become passionate about it. - Henry Ford was passionate about automobiles. - Thomas Edison was passionate about light. - The Wright Brothers were passionate about flying. You will only be remembered in life for what you were passionate about. You may have to start out small, but when what you love begins to consume your mind, your thoughts, your conversation and your schedule, then you are headed for success. - Do you dread going to work? - Do you watch the clock? - Does your mind wander to other places and things you would rather be doing? Then you won't succeed. Find something you feel passionate about, something that energizes you, something worthy of building your life around.

Henry Ford:- Early Career In 1888, Ford married Clara Ala Bryant and briefly returned to farming to support his wife and son, Edsel. But three years later, he was hired as an engineer for the Edison Illuminating Company. In 1883, his natural talents earned him a promotion to Chief Engineer. All the while, Ford developed his plans for a horseless carriage, and in 1896, he constructed his first model, the Ford Quadricycle. Within the same year, he attended a meeting with Edison executives and found himself presenting his automobile plans to Thomas Edison. The lighting genius encouraged Ford to build a second and better model.

WHY ARE YOU IN SCHOOL??? 1- For those whose answer is to get RICH, you are cruising on the wrong track! Read about Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Ralph Lauren, COSMOS MADUKA, Michael Dell. etc Non among these wealthiest figures achieved that through school 2- Those whose answer is "to get knowledge", my dear stop wasting your time in school! Michael Faraday, Thomas Edison, Robert Franklin Stroud, Oliver Evans, John Smeaton, Karl Marx, Wright Brothers.etc attained their FULL POTENTIALS by turning their back to school... They were Autodidacts 3- Some might answer this way "to become famous", hmmm. Please stop deceiving your self and your lectures. Have you ever seen an renown graduate?? Your can take soccer, music or acting as your career instead. Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zidane, Jay Z, Akon, Eminem...etc All these people broke their pens and tore their books before realizing their dreams 5-Some cool but dull minds would answer "I Don't Know" ... Well, the world needs to get rid of ...
Aren't you glad Abe Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Wright Brothers & others weren't realists? Why would YOU want to be one? Change your mind. Change your life. Change the world!
Henry Ford was groomed by his father to take over the family farm. Two factors kept him from that destiny: his hate for farming and his love of automobiles. He pursued his passion and apprenticed as a machinist. Years later, he became an engineer in Thomas Edison’s company and his passion for creating automobiles led him to establish Ford Motors. Your passion is the best motivation for you to work hard and do whatever’s necessary to succeed. Whether it’s baking cookies or carpentry, let your passion lead the way.
Call me different and I'll take it as a complement. So were these people: Thomas Edison, Leonardo Da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, Howard Hughes, Neil Armstrong & Henry Ford. Thank god for different people or we'd be walking to the store, using candles and taking a month or two to get across country. Never change who you are for anyone, you may just change the world :)
Everyone has been posting everyday this month what they are most thankful for. So in the spirit of the season I thought I would give a BIG SHOUT out of thankfulness to several people who have maDe my life a little easier over the years. I AM SO THANKFUL FOR: Oliver Evans, Thomas Crapper, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Guglielmo Marconi, Lagzlo Biro, George Washington Carver, Otto Frederick Rohwedder and Levi Strauss. Thanks Guys, for without you I would not have today: A refrigerator, a toilet, a light bulb, my sweet mustang, a radio, a ball point pen, peanut butter, sliced bread or blue jeans. LOVE YOU ALL!!!
If normal people are just average... Why don't more people strive to be crazy, unrealistic and different? Most of the greatest contributors to the world were called crazy at one point in time... Go down the list Muhammad, Jesus, Moses and more. In recent times, Steve Jobs, Henry Ford, the Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison, Martin Luther King Jr., Muhammad Ali and Mahatma Gandhi. There are no short cuts to success. There is no cheating on success. You have to be dedicated, patient and persistent. NEVER GIVE UP. Have a blessed and productive day. Smile. The Most High has given you life in this day if you are able to read this. :-) "Even a smile is charity" Muhammad
I would love to have lived during the industrial revolution. The Men Who Built America was an amazing series that truly showed how American ingenuity brought us to prosper. And now the current Cooperate philanthropy and innovation is horribly subpar. This is why we are not the forefront of the world economy. Nicola Tesla, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, JP Morgan, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, John D Rockefeller and so many others. Our way of life would not have been possible without steel, AC Electricity, modern banking, gasoline, and the automobile. What else. *** people wouldn't cross the Mississippi without an elephant doing it first! I will never accomplish anything to that magnitude and most likely neither will anyone else in the near future, but if I can contribute 1/1000th of what those men did I will feel as though I have accomplished my purpose in life. And I hope to be able to do that with the most amazing partner a man could ever have!
Great inventer in the world: Wright Brothers, for Plane. George Eastman for Film. Thomas Edison for Light bulb. Alexander Graham Bell for Telephone. Henry Ford for Car...They Use a secrete, "THOUGHT BECOME THINGS".hv grt evening good ppl*
Day 9- I am thankful for people like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, etc., whose determination to follow their dreams, and do what everyone didn't understand in their day, has made our modern lives so much more convenient.
Day 9: I'm thankful for our forefathers. Could you imagine what our country would be like, without the amazing lives of Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln, Henry Ford, Elvis Presley, "Babe" Ruth, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Susan B. Anthony, Bill Gates, Franklin Roosevelt, The Wright Brothers, and SO many more! They all have played a part in shaping our country and making it the BEST place on earth, to live!
As a boy the society instils in you that girls waste your time, not true though, but I like it because this buys you time to find that right girl for a wife, in a history of wealthy men it had been found out that wives have super positive influence in their men' successes,; Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Abraham Lincoln, the list is endless..
Henry Ford and Thomas Edison together in 1929. Found in an old book within the Nela Park archives
Dealing with the inevitable: Everyone in life has a relationship But men of the same purpose usually walk on the same path. Three world's gospel giants, Kenneth Hagin, Oral Roberts and T.L Osborn once lived in the flat, and from that relationship, the city of Tulsa, the nation of America and the entire planet earth continents were taken by the gospel invasion. The moment sergie Brian and Larry page had a walk of purpose, Google was born and the world's research field was affected and expanded. Henry Ford came in contact with Thomas Edison and another inventor was born. When Thomas Edison lost his lab, Henry gave him a hand that helped him regain his lead. The vulture and the Eagle are of the same bird family but they don't share the same path. The Eagle choosed a higher purpose. Who do you walk with? Each moment you choose a relationship, you have just decided for your future. Each of your relationship has the power to invent your future.. Stir your spirit toda and shake off the wrong relationships. Shalo ...
Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Andrew Carnegie... What are some words you’d use to describe them, that you’d also love to use to describe YOURSELF?
"The most successful people in history were able to ignore naysayers around them. Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Steven Jobs, and others were never stifled by the limitations of other people's imaginations. The next time someone promotes their own pessimism about the future, don't believe it. They are seeking company at their pity party." ~ Rick Davis I liked this alot.
Last night's "The Men Who Built America" on History . learned so much about JP Morgan, Thomas Edison, Nikolai Tesla, George Westinghouse and electricity . so interesting! Driven by power and greed, these men (Vanderbilt, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Morgan) nonetheless built empires that propelled America to becoming the greatest country in history. Sunday night series finale . Henry Ford.
You know what I find amazing? How John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, Cornelius Vanderbilt, George Westinghouse, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and though nowhere in their financial realm, Nikola Tesla where all born within the same time span. Though their method of how they built America were cruel, their methods created the privileges that we so greatly utilize TODAY. Through their leadership and brilliance fortunes were derived and lives were forever changed.
The Green New Deal is no Joke to the Big Oil Companies & Wall Street ! Henry Ford & Thomas Edison had the formula in 1938 ! Before Samuel Prescott Bush & Skull & Cross Society entered WWII .. Sit in a Room with a Generator or a Room with People Smoking Cigarettes see Who will live Longer ! Our Eco-System is Fragile & the Sign's are Every Where ! We the People ! United We Stand for Freedom of Tyranny & Treason in America. 1%ers Pay Your Taxes !
Greatness in our materialistic world is defined as fame, popularity, scholastic or economic achievement, and notoriety. GREATNESS MAY RESULT FROM THESE QUALITIES, BUT THEY ARE NOT THE DEFINITION OF GREATNESS. Greatness may best be defined by the people throughout history whom we consider great. Among those who would be considered great in the context of their influence and impact on human society are such names as Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther, Martin Luther King, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, George Washington Carver, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Mahatma Gandhi, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Walt Disney, Alexander Graham Bell, Albert Einstein, Babe Ruth, Jesse Owens, Florence Nightingale, Helen Keller, Pablo Picasso, Sam Walton, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, the Wright Brothers, Steven Jobs, and Bessie Coleman.

This is for all those ignorante people out there, you know who you are. Dummies who don't have a college education, the DoeDoes. There are a few other people I know of who never got one either. J Paul Getty, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Firestone, the Wright Brothers, who also invented the propeller and the Wind Tunnel. Theres another fella, I forgot his name, no college He Chaired the Smithstonian and discovered the greatest collection of dynasour bones, Ben Franklin, many of our founding Fathers Ect Ect Ect. You are what you do not what you know.
Don't let others determine your worth. You alone are the determiner of your worth and therefore your destiny. This can be seen by casting an eye back to some of the most famous people today, who were told they would never achieve their dreams: Henry Ford, FW Woolworth; Soichiro Honda, Bill Gates; Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, Socrates, Isaac Newton, Robert Sternberg, Thomas Edison, Orville and Wilbur Wright, Oprah Winfrey, Abraham Lincoln, Fred Astaire, Sidney Poitier, Charlie Chaplin, Oliver Stone, Vincent Van Gogh, Charles Schultz, Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, JK Rowling, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Ludwig van Beethoven, Michael Jordan and Babe Ruth.
Must Read! Edison & Ford. Thomas Edison tried to persuade (change) Henry Ford to abandon his fledgling (inexperience) idea of a motor car because he was convinced that it would never work. He said, "Come and work for me and do something really worthwhile." Although Edison was a great inventor it sounds as if he was only positive about what he could do and rather pessimistic (expecting the worst) about other people's ideas. Next time you get in a car to go somewhere, be glad Ford didn't allow Edison's negative outlook on automobiles to influence him. Listen, the 'experts' may be right. But Dare To Believe that you can accomplish your goals and dreams without someone telling you something negative.
A visit to the estates of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford reveals a different side of Florida.
Are we talking living or dead? I would be interested in meeting George Washington, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford.
College is too dang stressful, I wish it was like the good ol' days where a man worked his way through life and accomplished things to get to greatness. That diploma is just a piece of paper to hang on the wall. Sure, higher learning is a great thing and I plan to accomplish the task one day, but there have been too many people to go through college and do nothing for the community, country, or even world. Look at Paul Allen, Glenn Beck, Warren Buffet, Andrew Carnegie, Winston Churchill, Walt Disney, Clint Eastwood, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, John Glenn, Peter Jennings, Steve Jobs: some did not even finish high-school and have changed the world as we know it. I'm not saying to quit at life, I'm saying aspire to be something great. Be willing to work no matter what the task and have joy in the fact that you are alive.
Henry Ford: the Founder of the Ford Motor Company Albert Einstein: The Special Relativity theory Isaac Newton: Laws of motion Steve wozniak: Apple co founder The Wrights brothers: Airplane Graham Bell: Telephone Thomas Edison: many inventions Take care all successful patents & inventions always comes from one man thinking, Not group of people and minds storm. You can go back in history and you always discover that it's one man thinking. Group of people thinking & minds storm creates weak ideas. It's necessary to think alone. But thinking of people requires group of people thinking. Just Think about it :D
Discovering the Champion in You By Bishop kenneth Ulmer EVERYONE loves a champion. Even children seem to be born with an inherent desire to become their idea of a champion. When you ask children what they want to be when they grow up, their answers run the gamut: firefighter, doctor, lawyer, astronaut, president. Whatever their aspirations, children strive for their hearts’ desires, truly believing they can accomplish anything. Champions, however, are not born; they are made. Webster’s Dictionary defines a champion as “a winner of first prize or first place in competition; one that does battle for another’s rights or honor; one who shows marked superiority.”1 Champions can be found in all walks of life. There are champion businessmen, champion athletes, champions of equal rights, champions for the homeless, champions for the rights of the unborn. Past champions might include such names as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Marie Curie, Dwight ...

Today did Greenfield Village/Henry Ford Museum--last time there I was 12y/o. Steam engines/locomotives, cars/planes etc--lotsa familiar things, but lotsa new. Thomas Edison's,Henry Ford's genius everywhere, plus Wilbur,Orville Wright's. Two months ago I was at Kitty Hawk in North Carolina's Outer Banks where Wrights first flew 1903, and 2 days ago toured Air Force Museum in Dayton and saw Huffman Prairie where Wrights perfected flight '04-'06, then today saw their bicycle shop where they built the plane!
I swear I'm not becoming a liberal California hippie or suffering from heat exhaustion after a long run, but today I'm enjoying lunch with a nice German girl at the Loving Hut Organic Vegan Cafe in Palo Alto, California. A Vegan is a vegetarian who doesn't eat eggs or milk products. Today I'm enjoying 7 Seas Rice (organic brown rice with roasted pine nuts, nori, bell pepper, greens, cucumber and sesame seeds accompanied by a harmonious lemon sauce. Harmonious lemon sauce are their words not mine. If I ever used the term harmonious lemon sauce back home in Souderton, PA I would be beat up and forced to hand in my "Man Card". Some famous vegetarians/vegans are Einstein, actress Alycia Silverstone , Henry Ford, Ghandi, Prince Charles, Bill Clinton, actor Pierce Brosnan, Ellen, Richard Gere, Mark Twain and Thomas Edison.
The Ugly Truth About What Really Made America Great You won't hear this on any news channel. You may not read it anywhere on the internet. What actually made America the nation that stood out over and above all the other nations of the world? First we must start at the beginning. At first America got started with Beaver, Buffalo, Tobacco, and Cotton. America had slaves for Tobacco and Cotton. Slavery was one of the things that helped make America Great. Later America had industry and rail roads. There were no unions and industry was cruel to it's workers. So, cruel practices in the work place was one of the things that made America Great. People like Frederick Weyerhaeuser, John D. Rockefeller, George Westinghouse, Henry Ford, John Jacob Astor, Jay Gould, J. P. Morgan, Charles M. Schwab, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Oliver Winchester, Samuel Colt, Horace Smith, Daniel B. Wesson, and Thomas Edison. These were the people who made America Great. When President Obama says "The Economy is Built From the Bottom Up" d ...
*** What you see within possible, keep fueling that dream, create a plan, expect wisdom to arrive for how to apply that plan, that wisdom will arive from within you, in your quiet time...Disregard the opinions that attempt to discourage. And live what you believe is your desired purpose possible anyway. Just as Henry Ford helped to give us the motor car, Thomas Edison the light, Bill Gates access to home computers, and each invention that we enjoy today, and those coming. Along with all our great artist, Musicians, Great thinks, and you. Persistantly pursue, your desire accomplished must be achieved. You have greatness in you, to be released to this generation, which will help to raise the global thinking and mindset of all humankind. Thanks for being you.

We just got back to our hotel after a long day at Greenfield Village. We left at 9:30 & just got back. We watched several shows & skits about Henry Ford, George Washington Carver , Thomas Edison , George Gershwin , Robert Frost & many more famous Americans. It was great. We are going to rest up for church tomorrow . The weather was wonderful, kind of hot but a wonderful breeze.
Only in America can we ignorantly praise anti-Semites (Henry Ford), thieves (Thomas Edison), and criminal financiers (JP Morgan) all the while crying about the OPINION of one man at Chick-Fil-A (they make sandwiches!!). Amazing.
Martin Luther King (Jn), Thomas Edison, Abraham Lincon, Nelson Mandela, Wright Brothers, Henry Ford. Do you realise that all these renown world changers had something in common which you also need in order to accomplish your goals no matter how big or small it is? I am sure you will like to know what it is and most importantly, how they use this powerful tool to achieve their aim? Lets hang out with a friend and colleague, AlexGreat Akhigbe, at his Book Launch this Saturday 4th August 2012, as he unveil this secret in his classic book "Dare To Live Your Passion". Venue: Tantalizer Hall, beside Zenith Bank, Okota Road, Lagos Be there.
The world is full of unrecognized geniuses. To be recognized, you need to be a self-promoter and salesman as well as a genius, and that's a rare combination of skill sets. Thomas Edison and Henry Ford are famous examples, Tony Hawk is another.
Let's see if I have this correct!.Henry Ford built his first cars because of all the great roads in the country at that time.99.9% of them dirt ruts...yep! Thomas Edison build Edison Electric because of all the great network of transmission lines.yep all 0% of them. The Wright Brothers started aviation because of all the great airports at that time...yep, all Zero of them.well, you get the picture.Obama understands free enterprise and being a businessman like a pig understands high fashion!
Thomas Edison invented the light bulb and changed the world. The Wright Brothers flew the first airplane and changed the world. Henry Ford changed the world in so many ways. Steve Jobs, Alexander Graham Bell, Louise Pasteur, Eli Whitney, Margaret Wilcox, Ida Forbes, Maria Beaseley, and many many other great inventors never needed a Politician or a bureaucrat to show them the way to change the way we live our lives! When is America going to stop listening to our Leaders as if they are gods, and only ask them to lead with humility and respect!
The beaches in Fort Myers, Florida have a laid-back feel and act as a gateway to several islands, including Sanibel and Captiva Islands. The Thomas Edison and Henry Ford estates are historic sites that are worth seeing.
I have had this inscription on a plaque over my desk for years with a picture of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison next to it just to imagine what these two minds discussed in leading America to its greatness!
In December 1921, the American industrialist Henry Ford and the inventor Thomas Edison visited the Muscle Shoals nitrate and water power projects near Florence, Alabama. They used the opportunity to articulate at length upon their alternative money theories, which were published in 2 reports which a...
OK..I cant keep this in any longer. THE PRIVATE SECTOR IS DOING GREAT not fine. The Fortune 500 companies have made RECORD profits and have RECORD money in their accounts for the last 3 years. They arent hiring because they have no faith in the future. I say if you dont want to hire and spread all your wealth, then go somewhere else. We dont want you here if you dont believe the American people are worth investing in. Henry Ford and Thomas Edison had faith in us. They created things and we ALL prospered. Get in the game or get out of the ballpark or else you are all ***
Photo: Thomas Edison and Henry Ford are about to kiss. Teehee! (Taken with Instagram)
Henry Ford, along with Thomas Edison invented charcoal.
People are already calling me crazy and stupid and it makes me happy because Henry Ford , Albert Eistien , Thomas Edison and many more where called losers and crazy before they became famous so this means I am on the right track
Take this quiz to learn your leadership style. - I am a Henry Ford / Thomas Edison apparently, but without the wealth
did u know Florida has a Thomas Edison and Henry Ford Museum?! ? It's really cool
The documentary Who Killed the Electric Car? alleged that Electric Car technology has been largely suppressed by Big Oil and gas firms. The first suppression of such occurred shortly after the turn of the 20th century (in 1899 the world's land speed record was set by an Electric Car at 65 mph); the second time was in 1913–1914 when the same interests sabotaged Henry Ford's and Thomas Edison's attempt to produce an 'inexpensive' Electric Car
that's a Thomas Edison quote, not Henry Ford.
He is Thomas Edison and Henry Ford rolled into one -- except that William Henry Gates III maybe smarter and more successful than either.He is America's richest man, and on the corporate landscape, he may well be the most feared. In less than a generation, Bill Gates has done nothing less than ...
The idea of self rule by common men is a myth! President Herbert Hoover was the first to remind us that throughout history, the greatest strides in human progress have always come from uncommon men and women. Men the likes of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. Ask yourself if you are you comfortable with the notion of everyone being common? Hoover noted that it is a curious fact that when we or a loved one gets sick, we will seek out an uncommon doctor. By necessity, humanity should fear any form of government that seeks in the name of social justice to whittle the uncommon man down to size. Worldwide, the forces of liberalism seem focused on just this pursuit. When did giving everyone an equal chance to succeed begin meaning holding back the best and the brightest or even worse, vilifying those who achieve uncommon successes. There will always be competition in society. One must accept that there will always be someone smarter, someone with more talent and someone with more money than yours ...
However, most of us think differently. You may think that you cannot succeed because you do not have enough experience, or because you have little money, or because you are disadvantaged in some other way. If so, you need to consider the examples of people like Henry Ford and Thomas Edison. Both of these men had nothing more than basic schooling. Van Gogh learned to paint relatively late in life. Stevie Wonder is blind. The world's leading cosmologist, Stephen Hawking, is in a wheelchair and cannot even speak without a voice machine. Oprah Winfrey was born black, dirt-poor, and was abused as a child. Excellent qualifications for becoming the highest-paid TV personality in America?...
Thomas Edison and Henry Ford both declared tobacco use should be banned. Aren't those the people who we depend on, on a daily basis?
Henry Ford, Thomas Edison & Rosa Parks -- all pioneers & innovators. Pieces of their history can be found at the Henry Ford Museum.
Ralph waldo Emerson once said" the ancestors of every action is a thought." therefore to be really great u must discipline ur thoughts. If u think Success, u become successful, can't be be consistently thinking failure & poverty & mistakenly stumble in Success & Prosperity. So allowing ur thoughts dwell on greatness leads u to the path of greatness. Each time u hear someone saying negative words, know that his thought life could not have been positive-for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speak. The great Henry Ford thought about producing the V8 engine & he did. Barrack Obama thought of becoming the first black American president & that he became. Osama Bin Ladin thought most of terrorism & he became the world's greatest villain. Thomas Edison pondered on producing commercially viable electric incandescent light bulb & he did. GOD HAS THOUGHT OF CREATING MAN, & HERE WE ARE! A French philosopher Rene Descartes says "I doubt,therefore I think; I think therefore I am". The foundation to any tower ...

BBQ Fun Facts: Ellsworth B. A. Zwoyer of Pennsylvania patented a design for charcoal briquettes in 1897. After World War I, the Zwoyer Fuel Company built charcoal briquette manufacturing plants in the United States with plants in Buffalo, NY and Fall River, MA. There are stories circulating that Henry Ford invented the very first briquette in 1920 with the help of Thomas Edison. However, the 1897 patent obviously predates this and Ford and Edison both knew Zwoyer. source: HPBA
Charles Darwin, Jim Henson, Charles Shultz, Thomas Jefferson, Dan Aykroyd, Michelangelo, Mozart, George Orwell, Thomas Edison, Mark Twain, Henry Ford...besides being famous, if you can tell me what these people have in common I'd be interested in having a conversation with you about it.

So today I found out that my great great grandpa worked with Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and the guy that invented Firestone tires as a translator. crazy
- Henry Ford went broke 5 times before he founded a successful motor company. - Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper because he lacked imagination. - Thomas Edison failed to create the light build 1000 times before he made one that worked. - Harrison Ford was fired from his first movie and told he did not have what it takes. - Stephen King's book Carrie was rejected by 30 publicists before it was accepted by one. - Elvis Presley was told to go back to driving a truck after being fired from a recording session. All these people ignored all the negative criticism and pressed on.
Henry Ford attempted to capture the last breath of Thomas Edison inside a test tube. That tube is now available in a local museum.
Positive thought for today... Many people have failed in order to succeed...Such as Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Henry Ford, Donald Trump, Michael Jordan, etc...But through failure comes success...And success comes through perseverance and hard work and determination...Today, if you get discouraged, take a mental break and remain positive by trying your best as you should never give up hope...Fight to the bitter end!!! ~Michelle
Henry Ford rigged one of his cars to barbecue meat using engine heat. He and Thomas Edison used to drive out to the country cooking their food along the way and then stop for a picnic.
