I didn't invent it. I never made it. I only had the plans drawn up for it. I wasn't trying to impress anyone. I doubt I'm the first one to have that idea. I bet others were also told by professionals and scholars that it wasn't possible. My point was: don't listen to people when they say you can't do something.

I can't say that I would have perfected it, or even been able to market it, but I kick myself for not even trying, just because someone I looked up to said it wouldn't work.
