"I work 18 hours daily-have been doing this for 45 years. This is double the usual amount men do. This makes me 90 years old. Add twenty years for youth and you have 110 years as my age. I am still working 18 hours and expect to keep it up for 20 years more. This makes me 150 years old. The reason I can work 18 hours is because I eat very little, sleep very little, and wear clothes that do not pinch the blood veins in the slightest." ~Thomas Edison, as quoted in Vegetable Dreams
