EDISON, THE MAN
Mr. Edison has not left the house, sir.
- Any idea what's wrong? - No sir, I do not.
- Go personally, fast. - Yes sir.
Nancy, please, that's a stupid question.
- Tell me, Mr. Edison! - Nancy, is your name?
Yes, Nancy Gray.
It's a nice name.
Maybe that's why I like it.
Tell me, Mr. Edison, what is the formula for success?
We know the formula, do not you remember?
Success is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, is not it, Mr. Edison?
Sure 1% inspiration is very important, you know?
You have to have it, you can not invent.
- You also learn at school. - How?
- That not learn in school. - Do not.
No, I think not.
Do not? Who taught you then?
- A teacher. - But he said it was not the school.
Nancy, my mother.
Does the press, electricity, radio?
- The greatest invention? - Yes sir.
- A blade of grass. - But that's not an invention.
Oh, yes it is, it is an invention of nature.
Did you ever stop to think why it grows, why is it green?
That is easy.
- Time. - Time?
Are you ready to go to the meeting?
- Never wear a watch, is important. - Yes, it's interesting.
- Nancy Goodbye, good luck. - Goodbye.
- Goodbye Mr. Edison, thanks. - Nothing, nothing.
I did not remember the meeting.
The world's people are witnesses, and we are here to
honor him on behalf of all.
But there was a time that had no witnesses.
And I had to walk slowly, against all,
ignorance, doubt, envy and greed.
In silence, he is studying the use of a new force.
In 1869, he left the west and went to Boston.
He came to the city of New York.
- Who is that? - I do not know.
What are you doing there?
Get out of there.
- Why he has not stopped? - Stop me?
- Sorry, I have hearing problems. - What's there?
- Good evening. - Good evening.
He said he would find here in this building.
- His name is Thomas Edison? - Yes sir.
I am the uncle But Cabbot.
Come with me.
- Have you been to Boston? - Yes, sir.
- Have you been to New York before? - Do not.
Are you planning to stay?
But! Aqu est Thomas Edison.
