a look into the past

July 10th, 1856: Nikola Tesla is born

"Tesla is entitled to the enduring gratitude of mankind."
      -Arthur Compton

"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"
      -Ben Johnston

"Tesla has contributed more to electrical science than any man up to his time."
      -Lord Kelvin

"All scientific men will be delighted to extend their warmest congratulations to Tesla and to express their appreciation of his great contributions to science."
      -Ernest Rutherford

"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”
      -Nikola Tesla
