Quote For Today from Henry Ford

There is lots I don't like about Henry Ford, but there is no denying he was a fascinating and complex character.  This quote of his is one of my favorites and while Henry Ford and I don't agree on much ( he was a violent anit-Semite who hated labor unions and was happy to make a profit from war as well as peace) we do agree on this definition of getting old.

On the other hand, he was definitely a visionary.  It's just that his visions were sometimes a little warped.

Despite his policy to pay his employees much higher wage than normal for the time (so that they could afford to buy the Model T's they built), I share your feelings about HF's bigotry and politics. But his "keep the mind busy and stay young" quote is one of my favorite Words To Live By. Short but GREAT post!
