      This is actually one of my best choices among the many quotes that I found online: “Manufacturing is more than just putting parts together. It's coming up with ideas, testing principles and perfecting the engineering, as well as final assembly.” by James Dyson

      Engineering is the art of doing for a dollar what anyone can do for 10.

      Nikola Tesla - Mechanical Engineer

      "Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic! If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic — and this we know it is, for certain — then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature."

      "Near enough is good enough". An old drafting saying from a good friend of mine.

      If you design it well the product goes into mass production.

      I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.

      Design a more fool-proof product; nature will come up with a bigger fool.
