July 12, 1865 Salute To George Washington Carver
July 12, 1865, Celebrating the 154th Birthday Of George Washington Carver. Some historians have verified Geroge Washington Carver's birthday as January 10, 1865. While other historians have predated his birthdate as July 12, 1865. Due to the absence of valid records historically because George Washington Carver was born into slavery there is no true verifiable date of birth for America's greatness mind. So today, The Black Blogger will support the date of July 12, 1865, as the date of George Washington Carver's date of birth. George Washington Carver was indeed a remarkable man. His platitudes, his achievements are some of the most significant of all-time. The work that George Washington Carver performed in the laboratories at Tuskegee Institute defined his scientific greatness. His work related to agricultural science made his one on the most sought after scientist in modern times. The Ford Motor Company founder Henry Ford modeled the mass production of the Model T Ford after an idea that was proposed by George Washington Carver. The very peanut butter sandwich you may have enjoyed today came from the mind of George Washington Carver. The survival of farming productive land strategies was designed in the mind of George Washington Carver.
In this salutation of George Washington Carver, I will voice many of his most famous quotes like:
Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.
When I was young, I said to God, 'God, tell me the mystery of the universe.' But God answered, 'That knowledge is for me alone.' So I said, 'God, tell me the mystery of the peanut.' Then God said, 'Well George, that's more nearly your size.' And he told me.
There are so many more quotes that defined his greatness. Listen to The Blackman Who Reads Aloud pay tribute to this remarkable man who along with Booker T. Washington put the great Tuskegee Institute on the educational map as one of the most powerful colleges in this nation's history.
We do know that he passed away on January 5, 1943. Today I salute the magnificence of Dr. Carver's brilliance by voicing some of his famous quotes.
