Alexander Graham Bell fue un científico, inventor y logopeda británico. Contribuyó al desarrollo de las telecomunicaciones y a la tecnología de la aviación. Su padre, abuelo y hermano estuvieron asociados con el trabajo en locución y discurso , lo que influyó profundamente en el trabajo de Bell, su investigación en la escucha y el habla y sus experimentos con aparatos para el oído. Sus investigaciones le llevaron a intentar conseguir la patente del teléfono en América, obteniéndola en 1876, aunque el aparato ya había sido desarrollado anteriormente por el italiano Antonio Meucci, no siendo éste reconocido como su inventor hasta el 11 de junio de 2002.

Muchos otros inventos ocuparon gran parte de la vida de Bell, entre ellos, la construcción del hidroala y los estudios de aeronáutica. En 1888, Alexander Graham Bell fue uno de los fundadores de la National Geographic Society y el 7 de enero de 1898, asumió la presidencia de dicha institución.

„Night is a more quiet time to work. It aids thought.“

— Alexander Graham Bell
Context: I begin my work at about nine or ten o'clock in the evening and continue until four or five in the morning. Night is a more quiet time to work. It aids thought.

„I had made up my mind to find that for which I was searching even if it required the remainder of my life.“

— Alexander Graham Bell
Context: I had made up my mind to find that for which I was searching even if it required the remainder of my life. After innumerable failures I finally uncovered the principle for which I was searching, and I was astounded at its simplicity. I was still more astounded to discover the principle I had revealed not only beneficial in the construction of a mechanical hearing aid but it served as well as means of sending the sound of the voice over a wire. Another discovery which came out of my investigation was the fact that when a man gives his order to produce a definite result and stands by that order it seems to have the effect of giving him what might be termed a second sight which enables him to see right through ordinary problems. What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it. As quoted in Making a Habit of Success: How to Make a Habit of Succeeding, How to Win With High Self-Esteem (1999) by MacK R. Douglas, p. 45. Unsourced variant: What this power is, I cannot say. All I know is that it exists... and it becomes available only when you are in that state of mind in which you know exactly what you want...and are fully determined not to quit until you get it.

„The most successful men in the end are those whose success is the result of steady accretion.“

— Alexander Graham Bell
Context: The most successful men in the end are those whose success is the result of steady accretion. That intellectuality is more vigorous that has attained its strength gradually. It is the man who carefully advances step by step, with his mind becoming wider and wider — and progressively better able to grasp any theme or situation — persevering in what he knows to be practical, and concentrating his thought upon it, who is bound to succeed in the greatest degree.

„The inventor...looks upon the world and is not contented with things as they are. He wants to improve whatever he sees, he wants to benefit the world; he is haunted by an idea. The spirit of invention possesses him, seeking materialization.“

— Alexander Graham Bell
Context: The inventor... looks upon the world and is not contented with things as they are. He wants to improve whatever he sees, he wants to benefit the world; he is haunted by an idea. The spirit of invention possesses him, seeking materialization. As appears on plaque in the entrance to the [http://www.pc.gc.ca/lhn-nhs/ns/grahambell/index_e.asp Alexander Graham Bell Museum] in Baddeck, Nova Scotia, Canada.

„You cannot force ideas. Successful ideas are the result of slow growth.“

— Alexander Graham Bell
Context: You cannot force ideas. Successful ideas are the result of slow growth. Ideas do not reach perfection in a day, no matter how much study is put upon them.

„Mr. Watson — Come here — I want to see you.“

— Alexander Graham Bell
First intelligible words spoken over the telephone (10 March 1876), as recorded in [http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=magbell&fileName=253/25300201/bellpage.db&recNum=21 Bell's Journal entry (10 March 1876)]. These are often misquoted as "Mr. Watson, come here, I want you." Watson later recounted that Bell had spilled battery acid and had called for him over the phone with these words, but this may have been in a separate incident.

„Don't keep forever on the public road. Leave the beaten track behind occasionally and dive into the woods.“

— Alexander Graham Bell
Context: Don't keep forever on the public road. Leave the beaten track behind occasionally and dive into the woods. You will be certain to find something you have never seen before, and something worth thinking about to occupy your mind. All really big discoveries are the result of thought. As quoted in "The Chemistry of Life" by Ralph Whiteside Kerr in Rosicrucian Digest (1947), p. 131.
