"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."

Dear Thomas Edison,
I have never met you personally, or seen you for real, however, you have played a great role in inspiring not only my life but also many great leaders who might have followed you.

I really respect and thank you from the core of my heart for all the work you have done in your life, and the people whom you have inspired so far.

The legacy that you have left behind for us will always be cherished, not only by ourselves but also by upcoming 1000 future generations, that's what I believe.

Few minutes ago at around 10:14p.m, when I was just using a mobile, I got the notification from InShorts App which stated, "Thomas Edison's 'Last Breath' is stored in a test tube."

You can imagine the kind of respect, love, and emotions people have for you, by knowing this information.

I was really amazed to see that notification which made me to open that app and later search your name on Google which reminded me more of you.

You might have left this world on this day in 1931 but no matter where you are, we still remember you in one way or the other.

For instance, whenever I feel like giving up after trying, I don't saythat it won't work anymore, rather I remember the above quote of yours, and say to myself, "May be I am not trying enough number of times, I must try at least once more."

Thank You so much Sir for everything, once again.

Regards,
