A young French inventor designed the first steam-powered automobile in 1769. Just three years prior, his successor was born, creating the first car with an internal combustion engine by 1807. Their German neighbors followed up with the first petrol-powered vehicle in 1886, and two years later invented what is regarded as the first electric car of the world.
Centuries ago, four inventors planted the seeds to our brave new world.
What is now commonplace was once a sacrifice. A full life of service to one ideal of the past for the benefit of untold numbers to come. Flourishing has always been fueled by gratitude and innovation always builds off that which has been. As history tends to have a way of losing pieces, the future cannot afford for any to be left behind.
