“Being busy does not always mean real work.
The object of all work is production or accomplishment
and to either of these ends there must be
forethought, system, planning, intelligence,
and honest purpose, as well as perspiration.
Seeming to do is not doing.”
–Thomas A. Edison

I’m a great fan of Thomas Edison quotes. Some of his quotes aren’t what you would expect from him — or at least not what I would expect from him. That is what i find so interesting. This quote is a favorite.


Love that picture. I have tried to take pictures of bees but they are always blurry. You have some great ones here on this site.
