Infamous Words

Lean Thinkers require a willingness to step beyond society imposed boundaries. I thought I would share with you some influential people, from the past, talking about societal limits. Here are a few quotes that gave me a good laugh.

“Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible.”

—Lord Kelvin, President of the Royal Society, 1895

“Everything that can be invented has been invented.”

—Charles H. Duell, Director of the U.S. Patent Office, 1899

“Sensible and responsible women do not want to vote.”

—Grover Cleveland, 1905

“There is no likelihood man can ever tap the power of the atom.

—Robert Millikan, Nobel Laureate in Physics, 1923

“Who the heck wants to hear actors talk?”

—Harry M. Warner, Warner Bros. Pictures, 1927

The quotes are taken from: Gary Craig, The EFT Manual, Energy Psychology Press (August 31, 2008), pp. 28-29
