In Germany, “experts” proved that if trains went as fast as 15 miles an hour – considered a frightful spread – blood would spurt from the traveler’s noses and passengers would suffocate when going through tunnels.
In the United States, “experts” said the introduction of the railroad would require the building of many insane asylums since people would be driven mad with terror at the sight of the locomotives.
When the idea of iron ships was proposed, “experts” insisted that they would not float, would damage more easily then wooden ships when grounding, that it would be difficult to preserve the iron bottom from rust, and that iron would play havoc with compass readings.

You see dear reader, one thing you can never think of is throwing in the towel at any point in time. You must keep going until you achieve what you want. If you must, you can alter your procedure, but keep at it till you succeed.
