Nikola Tesla was one of the greatest minds in science. His contributions were immense in the field of electricity and engineering. Although he died in 1943, some of his quotes still serve a lot of purpose for us today.
The simplest explanation for Tesla’s quote is:
“There is no perfect being. What defines or makes us are our strengths and flaws. There is no point in trying to alienate one from the other. We have to live and contend with who we are.”
“Man is no more" in this case means his failings and virtues can't be separated. If an attempt is made in this vein, man becomes a caricature of himself.
It’s important to remember that failure is not only an inevitable part of life, it’s an inevitable part of success.
