Two Elbert Hubbard quotes

“The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.” 

― Elbert Hubbard

Elbert Hubbard was an interesting man. While I don't agree with all his anarchist ideas, he said some very encouraging things in support of those who work to do good in their position in society, whatever it may be. Unfortunately, his life was cut short in the sinking of the Lusitania during WWI.

Here's another good quote from Hubbard:
One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.

Doesn't that just restore some hope after hearing gloomy predictions about people losing their jobs to robots and software? Everyone can be extraordinary at something.
