Akira Kurosawa
People today have forgotten they're really just a part of nature. Yet, they destroy the nature on which our lives depend. They always think they can make something better. Especially scientists. They may be smart, but most don't understand the heart of nature. They only invent things that, in the end, make people unhappy. Yet they're so proud of their inventions. What's worse, most people are, too. They view them as if they were miracles. They worship them. They don't know it, but they're losing nature. They don't see that they're going to perish. The most important things for human beings are clean air and clean water.
Alexander Graham Bell

Be creative while inventing ideas, but be disciplined while implementing them.
Amit Kalantri
Our ancestors have invented, we can at least innovate.
Amit Kalantri
An invention is a responsibility of the individual, society cannot invent, it can only applaud the invention and inventor.
Archimedes
Give me but a firm spot on which to stand, and I shall move the earth.
Arthur Conan Doyle
Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent.
Bamigboye Olurotimi
You may be wrong at first; you can still be right at last.

If where we are now and whatever we are going through does not motivate us to leave this world better than the way we met it, we are in this world for wrong reasons.
Christopher Hitchens
Thus, though I dislike to differ with such a great man, Voltaire was simply ludicrous when he said that if god did not exist it would be necessary to invent him. The human invention of god is the problem to begin with.
Christopher Langan
In my view, ideas and other intellectual productions are more interesting, more indicative of intelligence, and more productively debated than IQ alone.
Debasish Mridha
Ideas are the seeds of invention and actions are the fertilizers.
Duane Michals
Photography is essentially an act of recognition by street photographers, not an act of invention. Photographers might respond to an old man's face, or an Arbus freak, or the way light hits a building
Elbert Hubbard
The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
Frances Hodgson Burnett
She liked books more than anything else, and was, in fact, always inventing stories of beautiful things and telling them to herself.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Just as little as a reader today reads all of the individual words (let alone syllables) on a page
H.G. Wells
We are kept keen on the grindstone of pain and necessity.
Israelmore Ayivor
Be the initiator of things you wish to see, but can't see. Be the originator of things you wish you feel but can't feel.
Israelmore Ayivor
Don't always complain the way isn't there. If you can't find the way, create it.
Israelmore Ayivor
Bridges take people across rivers. Leaders take people across ignorance. With a leader, the destination of a journey is sure.
James Burke
On why 300 years separates the first use of glass lenses in spectacles and their use in a telescope: In many cases there are times when an invention is technologically possible
Joe Kelly
Sometimes, the things They say, the laws They make, the way the world spins doesn't make any sense at all...Which is exactly why you have to ask Why? and keep on asking until you get the TRUTH...
John Adams
It was the general opinion of ancient nations, that the divinity alone was adequate to the important office of giving laws to men... and modern nations, in the consecrations of kings, and in several superstitious chimeras of divine rights in princes and nobles, are nearly unanimous in preserving remnants of it... Is the jealousy of power, and the envy of superiority, so strong in all men, that no considerations of public or private utility are sufficient to engage their submission to rules for their own happiness? Or is the disposition to imposture so prevalent in men of experience, that their private views of ambition and avarice can be accomplished only by artifice?

Joseph Conrad
Necessity, they say, is the mother of invention, but fear, too, is not barren of ingenious suggestions.
Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.
L. Frank Baum
Imagination has brought mankind through the Dark Ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity. Imagination has given us the steam engine, the telephone, the talking-machine and the automobile, for these things had to be dreamed of before they became realities. So I believe that dreams - day dreams, you know, with your eyes wide open and your brain-machinery whizzing - are likely to lead to the betterment of the world. The imaginative child will become the imaginative man or woman most apt to create, to invent, and therefore to foster civilization.
Lewis Thomas
The greatest single achievement of nature to date was surely the invention of the molecule DNA.
Mamur Mustapha
Only the victor gets to write history; where half of the facts are distorted and the other half invented.
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in creating out of void but out of chaos.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Among other possibilities, money was invented to make it possible for a foolish man to control wise men; a weak man, strong men; a child, old men; an ignorant man, knowledgeable men; and for a dwarf to control giants.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
There probably was a time when the idea of having a toilet inside a house was repulsive.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
If e-book readers were invented before print books, (petty things such as) the smell of ink would have been some people's only reason for not abandoning e-books.
Niccolò Machiavelli
... He who innovates will have for his enemies all those who are well off under the existing order of things, and only lukewarm supporters in those who might be better off under the new... partly from the incredulity of mankind, who will never admit the merit of anything new, until they have seen it proved by the event.
Nikola Tesla
The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.
Sukant Ratnakar
life is a continous journey of transformation
Sun Tzu
There are not more than five musical notes, yet the combinations of these five give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard. There are not more than five primary colours, yet in combinationthey produce more hues than can ever been seen.There are not more than five cardinal tastes, yet combinations ofthem yield more flavours than can ever be tasted.

Poverty is the mother of invention

Getting fired from work gives you the zeal to make your own inventions

Poverty is the origin of invention
Sunday Adelaja
To own something and not be aware of it could not only be annoying, but fatal too. That is why most people had all the time but did nothing with it. They died leaving behind no invention or product that they could be remembered for.
Tara Lemméy
Wonder is the starter kit for innovation
Tennessee Williams
It is only in his work that an artist can find reality and satisfaction, for the actual world is less intense than the world of his invention and consequently his life, without recourse to violent disorder, does not seem very substantial. The right condition for him is that in which his work in not only convenient but unavoidable.
Thomas A. Edison
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.
Thomas Henry Huxley
But anyone who is practically acquainted with scientific work is aware that those who refuse to go beyond fact, rarely get as far as fact; and anyone who has studied the history of science knows that almost every great step therein has been made by the 'anticipation of Nature,' that is, by the invention of hypotheses, which, though verifiable, often had very little foundation to start with.
Thomas More
It is naturally given to all men to esteem their own inventions best.
Toba Beta
The way of war was the invention of heavenly beings.
Vineet Raj Kapoor
When Design become Useless it becomes Art. Yesterday's Artisans are today's Artists.
