JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: Mozart's Symphony #25 in G Minor]
There is a story about Thomas Edison in which one of
his assistants said something like, "We've tried this a thousand ways
and it doesn't work! We've accomplished nothing!" Edison reportedly
replied, "Nonsense. We've learned a thousand ways it doesn't work."
What's the moral of the story, and what is your perspective on the idea?
