John Deere was an American blacksmith and the founder of Deere&Company, which is one of the leading manufacturers of construction and agricultural equipment in the world.
After the invention of the ‘famous John Deere Steel Plow’ in 1837, Deere’s business became unstoppable. Deere first sold his invention to a local farmer who then spread the word about the new revolutionary equipment all over the neighborhood. And needless to say, Deere’s Steel Plow became the most popular agricultural tool.
John Deere is now long gone, but his legacy still lives and will continue to inspire the world even in the future. His quotes reflect his passion for his work and his industry and we can all benefit from them.
