Nikola Tesla - portrait circa 1935

"Declarations of Faith," New York American, 1932:
NIKOLA TESLA, acknowledged dean of American inventors, in a recent interview on his seventy-sixth birthday, reaffirmed his faith in the recuperative vitality of our old universe and proclaimed his enthusiastic belief in the tremendous possibilities of the future with such vigor and such ringing confidence as to shame the cowardly croakings of our modern Cassandras. . . .

"Have I missed the mark, or, like true archer, do I strike my quarry?  Or am I prophet of lies, a babbler from door to door?" [Cassandra. Aeschylus, Agamemnon 1194]
