Quotes About The Invention Of The Automobile

But doesnt every precious era feel like fiction once its gone? After a while, certain vestigial sayings are all that remain.

Similarly, even as they grew apart, my parents never stopped calling each other sweetheart.

So if we have yet to jettison these abominations, why would people give up their cars either?

It was a very big thing. Call waiting was a very big thing. And these incremental innovations happen constantly.

— Ashton Kutcher

Every new discovery in science brings with it a host of new problems, just as the invention of the automobile brought with it gas stations, roads, garages, mechanics, and a thousand other subsidiary details.
