Quotes by Nikola Tesla – INTJ

Nikola: “The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.”

Nikola: “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: “I do not think you can name many great inventions that have been made by married men.”

Nikola: “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”

Nikola: “Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more.”

Nikola: “From my childhood I had been intended for the clergy. This prospect hung like a dark cloud on my mind.”

Nikola: “The progressive development of man is vitally dependent on invention. It is the most important product of his creative brain.”

“My Inventions – Nikola Tesla’s Autobiography” by Nikola Tesla

The most important development of man is vitally dependent on invention. It is the progressive product of his creative brain. The brain’s ultimate purpose is the complete mastery of mind over the physical world, the utilization of the forces of nature to human needs.

This is the challenge of the inventor who is often misunderstood and unrewarded. But he finds ample compensation in the appealing exercises of his powers and in the knowledge of being one of that exceptionally privileged class without whom the race would have long ago perished in the bitter struggle against pitiless elements.

“Tesla – Man out of time” by Margaret Cheney

Called a ‘madman’ by his enemies, and a genius by others, and an enigma by nearly everyone else, Nikola Tesla was, without a doubt, a trailblazing inventor who created many astonishing, and sometimes world-transforming devices that were without theoretical precedent.

Tesla not only discovered the rotating magnetic field, but also introduced us to the fundamentals of robotics, missile science and computers. Almost supernaturally gifted, unfailingly flamboyant and neurotic, Tesla was troubled by an array of compulsions as well as phobias and was fond of extravagant and visionary experimentations.
