“That the scientific mind is freeing itself steadily from delusive sense impression is undeniable.

The future belongs to science and reason, not to artistic ideal. As the population increases and the resources exhausted, more and more of the artist’s subtle power will be turned toward the useful and the practical, and, ultimately, the creative effort of man will centre upon harnessing the energies of nature, until his control is so perfected and refined that the physical world obeys his mere will.” “It is providential that the youth or man of inventive mind is not ‘blessed’ with a million dollars, he would find it difficult to think. The mind is sharper and keener in seclusion and uninterrupted solitude. No big laboratory is needed in which to think. Originality thrives in seclusion free of outside influences beating upon us to cripple the creative mind. Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born. That is why many of the earthly miracles have had their genesis in humble surroundings.” At 84 years old on the Death Ray and building it for the US government, “However I would insist on one condition- that I would not suffer any interference from any experts. They would have to trust me.” “He has that supply of self love and self-confidence that usually go with success.” Arthur Brisbane Hearst’s editor Julian Hawthorne “Withal he manifested a courtesy and amiability which were almost feminine, and beneath all were the simplicity and integrity of a child. … To be with Tesla is to enter a domain of freedom even freer than solitude, because the horizon enlarges so…” Tesla fancied himself the as the best dressed man on fifth avenue and once told his secretary he intended to remain so. TMOT Tesla fired a secretary for being fat. His favorite joke was about his two aunts and it centered around the fact that they were sublimely ugly. TMOT Tesla was celibate, and perhaps homosexual.

The “War of the Currents” [3, chapter 5] between DC and AC, waged between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse, left both almost bankrupt. Tesla, feeling loyalty and generosity toward his new backer, Westinghouse, did not re-negotiate his patent royalties but rather released Westinghouse altogether. In the process, he lost what would have amounted to almost USD 12,000,000 in royalties [3, p 48–49]. Tragically, toward the end of his life, he was plagued by a chronic shortage of funds.

the harnessing of the forces of nature to human needs. It is the most important product of his creative brain. This is the difficult task of the inventor who is often misunderstood and unrewarded. Its ultimate purpose is the complete mastery of mind over the material world. But he finds ample compensation in the pleasing 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.The progressive development of man is vitally dependent on invention.
