    Excerpt from The Boyhood of an Inventor America's supremacy in industrially applied science is often attributed to her patent system. It is the belief of the writer, however, that individual liberty, peace of mind, and freedom from political terrors accounts to a greater extent for the fact that citizens of the United States have made more revolutionary inventions, and in a greater variety of fields, than all the world else combined. And these great inventions are born of the poor as often as of the well-to-do, and much oftener than of the rich. It is not believed, however, that the real inventors, as distinguished from the improver of other people's inventions, are ever driven to their efforts by a desire for great wealth, but rather, like other artists, the musician, the painter, the sculptor, the poet, by a love of creative effort. It's a hobby, a plaything outside one's daily employment. Of course it is also true that but very, very few of those who have hobbies, and still fewer of all those who work, ever make great inventions. Is it then an accident? If not, is it possible to discover how these few differ mentally from those about them? About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
