Famous quotes containing the word inventor:

    The public values the invention more than the inventor does. The inventor knows there is much more and better where this came from.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Blessed be the inventor of photography! I set him above even the inventor of chloroform! It has given more positive pleasure to poor suffering humanity than anything else that has “cast up” in my time or is like to—this art by which even the “poor” can possess themselves of tolerable likenesses of their absent dear ones. And mustn’t it be acting favourably on the morality of the country?
    Jane Welsh Carlyle (1801–1866)

    It is beyond a doubt that during the sixteenth century, and the years immediately preceding and following it, poisoning had been brought to a pitch of perfection which remains unknown to modern chemistry, but which is indisputably proved by history. Italy, the cradle of modern science, was at that time, the inventor and mistress of these secrets, many of which are lost.
    Honoré De Balzac (1799–1850)
