QUOTES:  

“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.” (Graham Bell )

“Perseverance must have some practical end, or it does not avail the man possessing it.” (Graham Bell )

“You cannot force ideas. Successful ideas are the result of slow growth. Ideas do not reach perfection in a day, no matter how much study is put upon them.”

 (Graham Bell )

Alexander Graham Bell (Scotland-UK,  March 3, 1847 – Nova Scotia-Canada, August 2, 1922  ) was an eminent scientist, inventor, engineer and innovator who is credited with inventing the first practical telephone.

Bell’s father, grandfather, and brother had all been associated with work on elocution and speech, and both his mother and wife were deaf, profoundly influencing Bell’s life’s work.

His research on hearing and speech further led him to experiment with hearing devices which eventually culminated in Bell being awarded the first US patent for the telephone in 1876.

In retrospect, Bell considered his most famous invention an intrusion on his real work as a scientist and refused to have a telephone in his study.

Many other inventions marked Bell’s later life, including groundbreaking work in optical telecommunications, hydrofoils and aeronautics.

In 1888, Bell became one of the founding members of the National Geographic Society.

He has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history.  [Wikipedia – English]
