16 Susan B. Anthony Quotes to Make You Treasure Your Independence

Susan Brownell Anthony was a notorious American social reformer and women’s rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women’s suffrage movement. Anthony was also involved in the temperance movement that aimed to stop the production (and sale) of alcohol. When she wanted to speak at one of the conventions, she was denied the chance solely because she was a woman. In that moment, Anthony realized that she had to do something about it or women don’t stand a chance to be taken seriously when it comes to politics. So she fought for the women’s right to vote. Susan B. Anthony tirelessly gave speeches around the country, supporting women’s suffrage. She even voted illegally in the presidential election, which got her arrested and fined $100, a fine she never paid but rather chose to give the money away instead. Moreover, she played a crucial role in the fight to end slavery, opening up her home to abolitionists, who made Susan B. Anthony’s home a regular meeting place. Here are 16 Susan B. Anthony quotes to make you treasure your independence. I think the girl who is able to earn her own living and pay her own way should be […]

25 Nikola Tesla Quotes to Become the Inventor of Your Dreams

One of the greatest inventors of all time, Nikola Tesla, “The genius who lit the world”, is well known for the Tesla coil (which laid the foundation for wireless technologies), the development of the alternating-current electrical system, while also being credited with the discovery of the rotating magnetic field. Tesla is also the man behind many other great inventions, but because he forgot to write down many of his ideas, others used them to their own advantage to become rich and famous. Tesla never really cared about money; what he wanted most was to provide free electricity to the world. However, such a project needed investors and, despite having found them, they eventually started to doubt his system. This led to bankruptcy and the tower he had built had to be sold in order to cover his debt. Nikola Tesla was never the marrying type, as he thought that being in a relationship would interfere with his work. But since most of us need another soul to keep us company and understand us, Tesla had a very special relationship with his pigeons, going as far as Tesla showed us that everything is possible when you try hard enough, his legacy […]

17 Isaac Newton Quotes to Help You Develop Your Inner Curiosity

Sir Isaac Newton was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, and alchemist, widely known for his contribution to the scientific revolution of the 17th century. As a child, his mother pulled him out of school as she wanted Newton to become a farmer. As expected, such a bright kid was no fit to be a farmer, and was obviously terrible at it. As a consequence, he was sent back to school to finish his education. Newton developed the laws of motion and the theory of gravity. He also made discoveries in optics – a theory of colors – stating that the white light is a composite of all colors of the spectrum. His masterpiece Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica (Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy) brought him fame in the world of physics. After publishing the book, Newton was knighted and became Sir Isaac Newton. A lot of his work remained unpublished long after his death, especially studies on alchemy and biblical chronology. However, we have enough access to his work nowadays and, of course, to his words of wisdom. So here are 17 Isaac Newton quotes to help you develop your inner curiosity. If I have seen further it is […]

In 1993, Toni Morrison was also awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature and later on she was selected for the Jefferson Lecture, receiving the highest honor for her accomplishments in the field. Everyone dreams of a life filled with achievements, prizes and being honored by the president himself (Bill Clinton gave a speech about Morrison during the award ceremony for National Arts and Humanities), but Toni’s life was not always paved with happiness. Her family was very poor, and because they couldn’t pay the rent anymore, their landlord set fire to the house they lived in. She was only two years old back then, but her parents passed on a valuable lesson to her: never fall into despair and just laugh in the face of evil. And because you should always keep your dignity and integrity no […]
