What is your favorite Einstein quote?
Part of “Joe’s Answer Bag Week”
The dude pissed brilliance, so it’s hard to pick just one. So I won’t. I’ll pick four.
- 1896, Age 17: A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future.
- 1921, on not knowing everything: [I do not] carry such information in my mind since it is readily available in books. …The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think.
- 1929, a rule for life:If A is success in life, then A = x + y + z. Work is x, play is y and z is keeping your mouth shut.
- 1951, on how little we really understand:One thing I have learned in a long life: that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike—and yet it is the most precious thing we have.
New goal in life: Get quoted on a future social blogging network. Do I have any candidate Joe-isms? Also, great screen name to the asker, I really want some ice cream now.
