Words of Wisdom

nerdfighters rules Hello Fellow BookNerds!

My apologies for this late night post. It has been one of those days where the moment I decide to relax and work on my blog, something of regrettably greater importance seems to come up. Being a person who lives by the philosophy of ‘better late than never’, I thought I should write something to entertain my dedicated followers ^_^

So, in light of upcoming final exams, I thought I good motivational quote might be appropriate to get you all through that final home stretch. With that in mind, whose words could be more inspirational and moving than those of inventor Thomas A. Edison, who although suffered many a failure in his search of that ground breaking invention, he never gave up and the results of his labor show.

                           – Thomas A. Edison

Although it may not seem like it right now, our hard work will always pay off in the end, and it is that end we need to keep reminding ourselves of to keep that little pessimistic voice quiet. Thomas Edison provided us with the light to see, regardless of the time of day. Imagine what life would be like if he had given up halfway; we would still be reading books by candlelight, and you can forget about having your Kobo reader. The greatest achievements of humankind came from the determination  of individuals to push past the barriers of doubt and feast their eyes upon the light beyond the horizon.

That’s all for today. Be sure to take plenty of study breaks to avoid a stress meltdown, and as always, happy reading!

Cheers,

BookNerd
