Those are great quotes John. A person who can think their way through a problem can think their way through life. Edison and Ford did that in spite of their lack of formal education. I often think of what they may have done had a formal education been a part of their life. Best professors I had came from West Point and Annapolis. They gave us what we needed to know to think our way through the subject matter and in the labs. Having to work to learn and think to get the answers made me a better engineer.
Barbara, great pen and ink combination.
