A Quote by Alexander Graham Bell on men, mind, practicality, success, and thought

The most successful men in the end are those whose success is the result of steady accretion. . . It is the man who carefully advances step by step, with his mind becoming wider and wider - and progressively better able to grasp any theme or situation - persevering in what he knows to be practical, and concentrating his thought upon it, who is bound to succeed in the greatest degree.

A Quote by Alexander Graham Bell on cooperation and discovery
