Nicola Tesla quotes

There are many Nicola Tesla quotes that have been captured and make interesting reading;

  • We build but to tear down. Most of our work and resource is squandered. Our onward march is marked by devastation. Everywhere there is an appalling loss of time, effort and life. A cheerless view, but true.
  • The opinion of the world does not affect me. I have placed as the real values in my life what follows when I am dead.
  • I predict that very shortly the old-fashioned incandescent lamp, having a filament heated to brightness by the passage of electric current through it, will entirely disappear.
  • The desire that guides me in all I do is the desire to harness the forces of nature to the service of mankind.

There are of course very many more Nicola Tesla quotes and facts.
