Thomas Edison: Motivator, Inspirator, and Creator

I am watching National Treasure: Book of Secrets and I had an inspiration. I want to share with you some quotes from our historic man, whom invented the light bulb, that everyone should be inspired and motivated from. This includes our government. Our country has swayed so far from when we were founded. I hope you enjoy these and I hope they give you a little motivation.
