Happy 165th Birthday, Thomas Edison!

This Saturday, February 11, will mark what would’ve been the 165th birthday of Thomas Edison. If our name hasn’t clued you in, we kinda like Mr. Edison in these here parts! 😉 So in celebration of one of the greatest innovators of all time, Edison Nation will host “A Week of Edison” from Wednesday, February 8 – Wednesday, February 15.

Join us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for a week of interesting invention facts, inspiring Edison quotes, and Edison-inspired trivia that could earn those history-sharp inventing enthusiasts a chance to win a free submission to any of our searches or a signed copy of our CEO Louis Foreman’s book, The Independent Inventor’s Handbook.

And since we’re reflecting on the life and work of Thomas Edison, there is no one who has put this into better perspective than he himself:

“I never did a day’s work in my life, it was all fun.” – Thomas Edison

    “My message to you is: Be courageous! I have lived a long time. I have seen history repeat itself again and again. I have seen many depressions in business. Always America has come out stronger and more prosperous. Be as brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward.”
    [Thomas A. Edison’s last public address (during the Great Depression)]

    Happy Birthday Mr. Edison!
