Everything Has Been Done

Charles H. Duell said, “Everything that can be invented, has been invented.” Charles commissioned the US patent office and if anyone understands the state of creation it is the commissioner of the US Patent Office

Except . . . 

Duell was the Commissioner in 1899.

So apparently he was wrong. I haven’t done any, in depth research but I believe there have been inventions that were fairly consequential between now and then.

Don’t take quotes, articles, sayings and the ramblings of other people to heart. Do your thing. Jim Rohn said, “Take advice but never take orders.” Don’t believe everything you hear, read or see.

Including this story!

This little quip has been passed around as evidence that the Commissioner of the US Patent Office had given up on creation over a century ago.

But it’s completely a lie.

Dennis Crouch traced the quote back to a joke. It may have been something that was said, but it was said tongue in cheek.

So act on your inspiration, not the quick quotes, opinions and ramblings of others, including me.

They may not be true.
