Henry Ford Quotes

None of our men are 'experts.'

The moment one gets into the 'expert' state of mind a great number of things become impossible.

The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability.

The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one's destiny to do, and then do it.
