- from Thomas Edison
To show that someone has a “bright idea,” cartoonists often draw a light bulb over the person’s head. You’ve probably seen this many times. It’s not only a sign of instant wisdom. It’s also a tribute to the genius of Thomas Edison.
Edison didn’t “invent” electricity. And he didn’t create the first electric lighting. But he did find a way to put electric lighting into homes and offices on a large scale.
