For Friday Philosophy #2015-24 I wanted to share with you some ideas that came to me from one of the events of this week.
I was at a graduation ceremony earlier this week and heard the Headmaster talk about reading a biography of Albert Einstein. It moved me to share some of his quotes with you this week.
The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
You have to learn the rules of the game and then you have to play better than anyone else.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.
If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what then, is an empty desk a sign.
There are many more. For those who are interested you can do a search on the man.
The time is now.
