Business has only two functions - marketing and innovation.
Innovation is the process of turning ideas into manufacturable and marketable form.
Since we live in an age of innovation, a practical education must prepare a man for work that does not yet exist and cannot yet be clearly defined.
Innovation is not the product of logical thought, although the result is tied to logical structure.
Entrepreneurs innovate. Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship. It is the act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth.
A spirit of innovation is generally the result of a selfish temper and confined views. People will not look forward to posterity, who never look backward to their ancestors.
Never before in history has innovation offered promise of so much to so many in so short a time.
Innovation by definition will not be accepted at first. It takes repeated attempts, endless demonstrations, monotonous rehearsals before innovation can be accepted and internalized by an organization. This requires 'courageous patience'.

Nothing is more dangerous than a dogmatic worldview - nothing more constraining, more blinding to innovation, more destructive of openness to novelty.
Every innovation occasions more harm and and derangement of order by its novelty, than benefit by its abstract utility.
Just as energy is the basis of life itself, and ideas the source of innovation, so is innovation the vital spark of all human change, improvement and progress.
Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.
The innovation point is the pivotal moment when talented and motivated people seek the opportunity to act on their ideas and dreams.
Pure innovation is more gross than error.
An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents; it rarely happens that Saul becomes Paul. What does happen is that it opponents gradually die out and that the growing generation is familiarized with the idea from the beginning.
Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.
Innovation is the creation of the new or the re-arranging of the old in a new way.
Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
Every innovation occasions more harm and and derangement of order by its novelty, than benefit by its abstract utility
