Einstein

10 Jan

Believe it or not, Albert Einstein is not someone I think about on a daily basis.  And when something unusual comes up in conversation twice in less than twelve hours, I tend to take notice.

An old friend mentioned that he was reading Einstein’s biography which included many references to Einstein’s own work.  He remarked how easy it was to understand what Einstein had written.  Later scientists, expanding on the original subject, had muddied the waters, rendering a clear concept nearly  incomprehensible to the average joe on the street.

Interesting.

Earlier that same day,  my daughter had shared a famous quote with me:

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

― Albert Einstein

Smart man, that Einstein.  If you judge your success by what you don’t have or what you can’t do, you will never be content.

Don’t muddy the waters.  See what is, not what isn’t.

Use the right glass.
