ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL

A REMARKABLE ASSESSMENT OF THE FUTURE OF THE AIRPLANE

“HOW TO PRODUCE FLYING MACHINES SO THAT ANYONE CAN FLY.”

“THE CLOSE OBSERVATION OF LITTLE THINGS IS THE SECRET OF SUCCESS IN BUSINESS, IN ART,

IN SCRIENCE, AND IN EVERY PERSUIT OF LIFE”

BELL, ALEXANDER GRAHAM (1847-1922) Scientist, inventor, and engineer who is credited with inventing the telephone. Partial Typed Letter Signed “Alexander Graham Bell.”   One page, octavo. No place. No date. The document reads:

” … safety of the flying machine; how to produce flying machines so that anyone can fly. But here, again, we view the importance of the apparently trivial, for it is very likely that this invention, when it is perfected, will have for its basis some ‘slight’ observation which a thinker will put to a practical and highly utilitarian use. The importance of observing every little thing and reasoning upon it can hardly be overestimated, for the history of invention is full of incidents- small incidents- small in themselves, but with far reaching consequences- which have proved of immense value to the world. Indeed, as Smiles very happily put it “The close observation of little things is the secret of success in business, in art, in science and in every pursuit of life.’  Alexander Graham Bell”
