Shocking Quotations

Proving that our Charlotte electricians have a sense of humor!

“I am somewhat exhausted; I wonder how a battery feels when it pours electricity into a non-conductor?”  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle included that line in The Adventure of the Dying Detective, one of more than 50 short stories he wrote featuring Sherlock Holmes.

In Tomorrow’s Eve, Villiers de L’Isle-Adam wrote, “Brunettes are full of electricity.”

Those are just two examples of some of the great quotes we found with references to electricity! The variety of the references – spanning fiction and nonfiction works, past and present – really make you stop and think about how essential electricity is to our world.

You may have been the recipient of some shocking quotes yourself – ones that weren’t funny.  And we’re not talking about deep thoughts from the pages of a book!  Some electricians in Charlotte NC will charge through the nose for necessary repairs.  They figure they have you over a barrel.  At Father and son electric service Electric Company in Charlotte, NC, we aren’t looking to make a fast buck.  We are a family-owned and operated business that would rather earn an honest living by working with repeat customers and earning positive reviews.  That’s why we are one of the most trusted electrical contractors in Charlotte NC.

  • “Electricity is really just organized lightning”
    ― George Carlin
  • “Invention is the most important product of man’s creative brain. The ultimate purpose is the complete mastery of mind over the material world, the harnessing of human nature to human needs.”
    ― Nikola TeslaMy Inventions
  • “Enthusiasm is the electricity of life. How do you get it? You act enthusiastic until you make it a habit.”
    ― Gordon Parks
  • “When you have half of Caironese in slums, when you don’t have clean water, when you don’t have a sewer system, when you don’t have electricity, and on top of that you live under one of the most repressive regimes right now… Well, put all that together, and it’s a ticking bomb. It’s not of a question of threat; it is question of looking around at the present environment and making a rational prognosis.”
    ― Mohamed ElBaradei
  • “Electricity for example was considered a very Satanic thing when it was first discovered and utilized.”
    ― Zeena Schreck
  • zeena schreck

  • “The night crackled … Everything had turned to static electricity in the heat. I combed my hair to watch the sparks fly from the ends.”
    ― Janet FitchWhite Oleander
  • janet fitch

  • “So Yoda sounds like our best bet as an energy source. But with world electricity consumption pushing 2 terawatts, it would take a hundred million Yodas to meet our demands. All things considered, switching to Yoda power probably isn’t worth the trouble — though it would definitely be green.”
    ― Randall MunroeWhat If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions
  • randall munroe

  • “There is a force more powerful than steam and electricity: the will.”
    ― Fernán Caballero
  • fernán caballero

  • “Is it a fact – or have I dreamt it – that, by means of electricity, the world of matter has become a great nerve, vibrating thousands of miles in a breathless point of time?”
    ― Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • nathaniel hawthorne

  • “Many conscientious environmentalists are repelled by the word “abundance,” automatically associating it with irresponsible consumerism and plundering of Earth’s resources. In the context of grassroots frustration, insensitive enthusing about the potential for energy abundance usually elicits an annoyed retort. “We have to conserve.” The authors believe the human family also has to _choose_. The people we speak with at the recycling depot or organic juice bar are for the most part not looking at the _difference_ between harmony-with-nature technologies and exploitative practices such as mountaintop coal mining. “Destructive” was yesterday’s technology of choice. As a result, the words “science and technology” are repugnant to many of the people who passionately care about health, peace, justice and the biosphere. Usually these acquaintances haven’t heard about the variety of constructive yet powerful clean energy technologies that have the potential to gradually replace oil and nuclear industries if allowed. Wastewater-into-energy technologies could clean up waterways and other variations solve the problem of polluting feedlots and landfills.”
    ― Jeane ManningBreakthrough Power: How Quantum-Leap New Energy Inventions Can Transform Our World
  • “He (Comings) has in the past performed successful energy-converting experiments, creating a ringing resonance by injecting certain frequencies into piezo-electric crystals. When the crystal was in resonance with the plenum of space, the power output rose significantly higher than the input. He concluded that, if allowed politically, such discoveries could guide humankind in building a completely clean energy infrastructure — resonant technologies that allow us to live in harmony with the universal energy field and the Earth.”
