A politician once complimented Thomas Edison on his creative genius.
“I am not a great inventor,” countered Thomas Edison.
“But you have over a thousand patents to your credit,” the governor remarked.
“Yes, but about the only invention I can really claim as an absolute original is the phonograph,” Edison replied.
“I’m afraid I don’t understand what you mean,” The governor said confused.
“Well, I guess I’m awfully good sponge. I absorb ideas from every course I can, and put them to practical use. Then I improve them until they become of some value. The ideas which I use are mostly the ideas of other people who don’t dvelop them themselves.”
