14 When a reporter asked Thomas Edison how it felt to have failed 25,000 times in his effort to create a simple storage battery, his reply was, “I don’t know why you are calling it a failure. Today I know 25,000 ways not to make a battery. What do you know?” When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2,000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, “I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2,000-step process.”

15 When our dreams begin to die, so do we. When we share our dreams with God, He won’t laugh and say, “Well, good luck.” As a matter of fact, God will take our dreams more seriously than we do, because He knows no compromise. He doesn’t deal in pieces of happiness and shadows of dreams. He will ask more of us than we ask of ourselves, but He will return more to us than we could ever hope or imagine ourselves.” -- Martha Williamson Executive producer of the TV series “Touched by an Angel”
