“I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward,” – Thomas Edison once said.
At the age of 16, Thomas saved the son of the head of one of the railway stations from death, and instead of the money he had been offered in gratitude, Edison asked a grateful father to teach him everything about the telegraph. That was the beginning of the success story of a great inventor and genius.
On May 19, 1926, Thomas Alva Edison first appeared on the radio.
Being confused, he approached the microphone and said:
“I don’t know what to say. This is the first time I ever spoke into one of these things… Good night”.
This behavior surprised everyone, because almost all the genius inventions in the field of electricity belonged to Thomas Edison by that time. He used to say “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration”.
