A wizard from the start, Thomas Edison had a thirst for knowledge, taste for mischief, and hunger for discovery–but his success was made possible by his boundless energy. At age fourteen he coined his personal motto: “The More to do, the more to be done,” and then went out and did: picking up skills and knowledge at every turn.
