A Quote by George Bruce Cortelyou on achievement, automobiles, country, electricity, finance, government, inventions, life, people, privacy, wilderness, and world

This country has achieved its commercial and financial supremacy under a regime of private ownership. It conquered the wilderness, built our railroads, our factories, our public utilities, gave us the telegraph, the telephone, the electric light, the automobile, the airplane, the radio and a higher standard of living for all the people than obtains anywhere else in the world. No great invention ever came from a government-owned industry.
