July 10th, 1856: Nikola Tesla is born
"Tesla is entitled to the enduring gratitude of mankind."
"Nikola Tesla is the true unsung prophet of the electronic age; without whom our radio, auto ignition, telephone, alternating current power generation and transmission, radio and television would have all been impossible"
"Tesla has contributed more to electrical science than any man up to his time."
"All scientific men will be delighted to extend their warmest congratulations to Tesla and to express their appreciation of his great contributions to science."
"I misunderstood Tesla. I think we all misunderstood Tesla. We thought he was a dreamer and visionary. He did dream and his dreams came true, he did have visions but they were of a real future, not an imaginary one."
-John Stone Stone
“Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine”
