What does it matter where my body happens to be?  My mind goes on working all the same.  In fact, the more head downwards I am, the more I keep inventing new things.

But if Alexander Graham Bell had fallen into the Grand River and drowned that day back in Brantford, the world would still have had the telephone, the only difference being that the telephone company would have been nicknamed Ma Gray, not Ma Bell.
