Henry Ford

    “Life is a series of experiences, each of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.”

- Henry Ford (Quotations Books).

      Although Henry Ford had several failed attempts at establishing his company, he ultimately revolutionized America by succeeding in what he wanted to achieve: the automobile being the preferred mode of transport in the United States.         
     Henry Ford set the pace for future companies to follow, and although Henry Ford grew up as a small-town farm boy, he was always an inventor at heart. Through hard work and determination, Ford became a figure-head of the twentieth century. He dominated the automobile market and became a leader to many looking for better working conditions. Henry Ford, through hard-headed motivation, became a famous man who is still relevant even today.
