Thumbs up George Washington Carver

George Washington Carver was born a slave. When slavery was abolished, his master adopted him and his brother, raising them as their own children and teaching them to read and write. George grew up to become a great scientist, who reputedly discovered three hundred uses for peanuts and hundreds more for soybeans, pecans and sweet potatoes. Thomas Edison at one point offered Carver a $100,000 salary if he would move to New Jersey and work with him, but Carver turned down the offer, preferring to continue his work at Tuskegee Institute. George Washington Carver always gave God credit for the great things he accomplished. Here are some quotations from George Washington Carver:

When I was young, I said to God, "God, tell me the mystery of the universe." But God answered, "That knowledge is reserved 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.

Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough. Not only have I found that when I talk to the little flower or to the little peanut they will give up their secrets, but I have found that when I silently commune with people they give up their secrets also - if you love them enough.

There is literally nothing that I ever asked to do, that I asked the blessed Creator to help me to do, that I have not been able to accomplish.

I never have to grope for methods. The method is revealed at the moment I am inspired to create something new... Without God to draw aside the curtain I would be helpless.


The Lord is good,a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him. ~ Nahum 1:7
