Quotes From
George Washington Carver

  • Take care of the waste on the
    farm and turn it into useful
    channels' should be the
    slogan of every farmer.

  • The primary idea in all of my
    work was to help the farmer
    and fill the poor man's empty
    dinner pail.. My idea is to help
    the 'man farthest down', this is
    why I have made every
    process just as simply as I
    could to put it within his reach.

  • How far you go in life
    depends on your being tender
    with the young,
    compassionate with the
    aged, sympathetic with the
    striving, and tolerant of the
    weak and the strong.
    Because someday in life you
    will have been all of these.

  • There is no short cut to
    achievement. Life requires
    thorough preparation --
    veneer isn't worth anything.

  • Learn to do common things
    uncommonly well; we must
    always keep in mind that
    anything that helps fill the
    dinner pail is valuable.

  • It is not the style of clothes
    one wears, neither the kind of
    automobile one drives, nor
    the amount of money one has
    in the bank, that counts.
    These mean nothing. It is
    simply service that measures

  • Look about you. Take hold of
    the things that are here. Let
    them talk to you. You learn to
    talk to them.
