Thomas Edison's Most Famous Inventions and Quotes

On this day in history, February 11, 1847, Thomas Edison was born.  Some of the inventions he brought to the world include

Quadruplex telegraph
Incandescent light bulb
Phonograph cylinder
Carbon microphone
Movie camera
Electric power distribution

On behalf of his birthday, I created a few memes with his famous quotes. &;Feel free to download, share, and use however you want.  As always, if you do share them, it wouldn't hurt my feelings if you included a link back to my blog as the source or a mention to let me know where they end up.

If you want to use some of his quotes for copywork, here's some of my favorites:

Your worth consists in what you are and not in what you have
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.
If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how cloe they were to success when they gave up.
If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.
I never did a day's work in my life. It was all fun.
The chief function of the body is to carry the brain around.
Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That's not the place to become discouraged.
