Einstein = Mighty Cute (Squared)

I just love Albert Einstein. What an amazing mind. And look how cute he was, with his crazy hair and boyish grin. He’s got to be the most lovable figure in history. I just want to give him a big hug.

What I really love about him is that his brain worked so completely differently than mine. (Beyond the basics, math and science are not a part of my hardwiring.) And yet, he had so many profound things to say that sum up my own feelings and experiences about life and education. He was wise and witty, as well as smart, which isn’t an automatic combination.

So I offer these few tidbits of Einsteinian wisdom to enlighten your day. Enjoy!

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”

“One had to cram all this stuff into one’s mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year.”

“Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.”

“The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.”

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the the universe.”

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of consciousness that created them.”

“Wisdom is not a product of schooling, but the life-long attempt to acquire it.”

“The only thing that interferes with my learning 
is my education.
