Alexander Graham Bell

Wisdom cannot come by railroad or automobile or aeroplane, or be hurried up by telegraph or telephone.
People always think they're in the middle of a revolution while they tend not to realize the enormity of a change that has happened in the past.

The radio was an improvement on the telegraph but it didn't have the same exponential, transformative effect.
