An inventor is simply a person who doesnรƒยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ€žยขt take his education too seriously. You see, from the time a person is six years old until he graduates form college he has to take three or four examinations a year. If he flunks once, he is out. But an inventor is almost always failing. He tries and fails maybe a thousand times. It he succeeds once then heรƒยขรขโ€šยฌรขโ€žยขs in. These two things are diametrically opposite. We often say that the biggest job we have is to teach a newly hired employee how to fail intelligently. We have to train him to experiment over and over and to keep on trying and failing until he learns what will work.

If at first you don’t succeed You can dust it off and try again…
