All of my inventions came forth because I was driven by this gigantic force! We hardly know the real power of what we have in this world. If we think we know something, we only know less than 1/10 millionth of 1 per cent!" I am going to work until the day I die! That is my mission in this life! When it comes to the end, I will be going to the world beyond, whereby I shall continue the research where I left off!"
