BEN HOGAN Quotes Take Away

Eugene Stoner was an engineer and designer who is best known for his design of the AR-15 rifle. He also created other firearms, including the AR-10 which was used in the Vietnam War. What makes Stoner so interesting is that he wasnโ€™t motivated by money or fame. In fact, he refused to patent any of his designs because he believed that they belonged to everyone. His quotes reflect this belief and are a testament to his innovative mind: โ€œI refuse to accept limits because I don’t know what’s possible.” “Invention is not discovery; it is creation.” “Design must be honest.” These inspiring words should give you a new perspective on invention and innovation.
