A Quote by Thomas Alva Edison on business, danger, government, and privacy

There is far more danger in public than in private monopoly, for when Government goes into business it can always shift its losses to the taxpayers. Government never makes ends meet-and that is the first requisite of business.

A Quote by Thomas Alva Edison on belief, body, death, faith, intelligence, lies, life, people, science, soul, and world

There is a great directing head of things and people - a supreme being, who looks after the destinies of the world. I have faith in a supreme being, and all my thoughts are regarding the life after death - where the soul goes, what form it takes and its relations to those now living. I am convinced that the body is made up of entities which are intelligent. When one cuts his finger, I believe it is the intelligence of those entities that heals the wound. When one is sick, it is the intelligence of these entities that brings convalescence. You know that there are living cells in the body so tiny that the microscope cannot show them at all. The entity that gives life and motion to the human body is finer still and lies infinitely beyond the reach of our finest scientific instruments. When this entity deserts the body, the body is like a ship without a rudder - deserted, motionless, dead.

A Quote by Thomas Alva Edison on existence, facts, intelligence, laws, and world

I know this world is ruled by Infinite Intelligence. It required Infinite Intelligence to create it and it requires Infinite Intelligence to keep it on its course. Everything that surrounds us - everything that exists - proves that there are Infinite Laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.
