“I do not think that there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the
inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success….Such emotions make a man
forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.”
Nikola Tesla, 1896 (Inventor of Alternating Current, the AC
motor, the Tesla coil, the transformer and greatly responsible for AC electricity in our homes instead of DC.) I
am not sure I agree with Tesla completely, but this sure says a lot about how much fun it is to make things.
"Life is pretty simple. You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it
works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is doing something else."
Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519)
