Alexander Graham Bell (發明家)


“When a man gives his order to produce a definite result and stands by that order it seems to have the effect of giving him what might be termed a second sight which enables him to see right through ordinary problems. What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.”

— Alexander Graham Bell, Inventor

「當一個人下令產生一個確切的結果並且堅持那個命令,它似乎可以給人一種像是第二視力的效果,讓他可以看穿一般的問題。這是什麼力量我無法說;我只知道它存在,且只有當一個人處在那個心理狀態時才會出現,他非常清楚的知道他要什麼,且下完全的決心在找到之前絕不放棄。」– 亞歷山大‧貝爾 (發明家)
