Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 - April 7, 1947) was the founder of the Ford Motor Company and the Henry Ford Company (which later became Cadillac). He was one of the first to apply assembly line manufacturing to the mass production of affordable automobiles. This achievement not only revolutionized industrial production in the United States and the rest of the world, but also had such tremendous influence over modern culture that many social theorists identify this phase of economic and social history as "Fordism." Some credit him with contributing to the creation of a middle class in American society.

Quotes by Henry Ford (1863-1947)

Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help us in our marching onward.

I am looking for a lot of men who have an infinite capacity to not know what can't be done.


It is all one to me if a man comes from Sing Sing or Harvard. We hire a man, not his history.

Whether you think you can or think you can't you are right.

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.

History is more or less bunk. It's tradition. We don't want tradition. We want to live in the present and the only history that is worth a tinker's damn is the history we made today.

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.

The best we can do is size up the chances, calculate the risks involved, estimate our ability to deal with them, and then make our plans with confidence.
