The quotation that I am looking for is something like -

"There can be nothing more left to be invented."

Can someone please correct this quotation ?

Who was the author and when did he say it ?


Thank you for any help.

Thank you Phaedrus:

"Everything that can be invented has been invented."
--Charles H. Duell, Commissioner, U.S. Office of Patents, 1899.

It is explained (from your URL) that this is a bit of a myth.
