β€œ We need to teach the highly educated man that it is not a disgrace to fail and that he must analyze every failure to find its cause. He must learn how to fail intelligently, for failing is one of the greatest arts in the world.” Charles Kettering

β€œ Why is the human skull as dense as it is? Nowadays we can send a message around the world in one-seventh of a second, but it takes years to drive an idea through a quarter-inch of human skull. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ We suffer not from overproduction but from under-circulation. You have heard of technocracy. I wish I had those fellows for my competitors. I’d like to take the automobile it is said they predicted could be made now that would last fifty years. Even if never used, this automobile would not be worth anything except to a junk-man in ten years, because of the changes in men’s tastes and ideas. This desire for change is an inherent quality in human nature, so that the present generation must not try to crystallize the needs of the future ones. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ I could do nothing without my problems; they toughen my mind. In fact, I tell my assistants not to bring me their successes for they weaken me, but rather to bring me their problems, for they strengthen me. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ I don’t want men of experience working for me. The experienced man is always telling me why something can’t be done. The fellow who has not had any experience is so dumb he doesn’t know a thing can’t be done – and he goes ahead and does it. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ Modern psychology teaches that experience is not merely the best teacher, but the only possible teacher. There is no war between theory and practice. The most valuable experience demands both, and the theory should supplement the practice and not precede it. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ If we taught music the way we try to teach engineering, in an unbroken four year course, we could end up with all theory and no music. When we study music, we start to practice from the beginning, and we practice for the entire time. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ Whenever you look at a piece of work and you think the fellow was crazy, then you want to pay some attention to that. One of you is likely to be, and you had better find out which one it is. It makes an awful lot of difference. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ Great steps in human progress are made by things that don’t work the way philosophy thought they should. If things always worked the way they should, you could write the history of the world from now on. But they don’t, and it is those deviations from the normal that make human progress. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ It doesn’t matter if you try and try and try again, and fail. It does matter if you try and fail, and fail to try again.” Charles Kettering

β€œ Every honest researcher I know admits he’s just a professional amateur. He’s doing whatever he’s doing for the first time. That makes him an amateur. He has sense enough to know that he’s going to have a lot of trouble, so that makes him a professional. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ An inventor is simply a fellow who doesn’t take his education too seriously. You see, from the time a person is six years old until he graduates form college he has to take three or four examinations a year. If he flunks once, he is out. But an inventor is almost always failing. He tries and fails maybe a thousand times. It he succeeds once then he’s in. These two things are diametrically opposite. We often say that the biggest job we have is to teach a newly hired employee how to fail intelligently. We have to train him to experiment over and over and to keep on trying and failing until he learns what will work. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ Every great improvement has come after repeated failures. Virtually nothing comes out right the first time. Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward toward success. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ I am not pleading with you to make changes, I am telling you you have got to make them, not because I say so, but because old Father Time will take care of you if you don’t change. Consequently, you need a procurement department for new ideas. ” Charles Kettering

β€œ When I was research head of General Motors and wanted a problem solved, I’d place a table outside the meeting room with a sign: β€œLeave slide rules here.” If I didn’t do that, I’d find someone reaching for his slide rule. Then he’d be on his feet saying, ‘Boss, you can’t do it.’ ” Charles Kettering
