(‘ve read and heard it said that when Young Thomas Edison’s stream of consciousness outdistanced his ability to record the evidence thereof,  he simply ran  words together, leaving it to Mother Edison, his teacher at the time, to interpret these ideas.

Much of Edison’s unique literary expression survived into adulthood and though not as extreme as his childhood notes were quite untamed and apparently the result, not so much of impatience but of the need to get his ideas on paper in their entirety.)
