The Man Who Actually Deserved The Title: GENIUS
The word has been bandied about and often cheapened when used to describe merely clever individuals or those who shine in just their chosen category. But Albert Einstein changed the way science, and specifically physics, works and is thought of, as well as moving the peace and anti-nuclear movements forward, inspiring and teaching hundreds of scientists who continue to make major and sometimes world-changing contributions to all of us, and still finding the time to produce many wise comments on every imaginable subject.
I immersed myself in the story of this greatest thinker of the 20th Century in preparation for my recent Moneylove Club audio selection inspired by and using 71 of his quotes, some not widely known. Some I had never seen before and I’ve chosen ten of my favorites from that category, and suggest that any one of them, if you plunge deeply enough into its core and deepest meaning, can have a profound impact on your imagination, your view of the way things are, and even your prosperity consciousness.
I wrote another post you might want to check out on my personal blog, also inspired by Einstein.
1. “Only those who attempt the absurd can achieve the impossible.”
2. “I don’t need to know everything, i just need to know where to find it when I need it.”
3. “Creativity is intelligence having fun.”
4. “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.”
5. “We all know that light travels faster than sound. That’s why certain people appear bright until you hear them speak.”
6. “Dancers are the athletes of God.”
7. “The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.”
8. “We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.”
9. “Success = 1 part work + 1 part play + 1 part keep your mouth shut.”
10. “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”
Though often humbly declaring he was just an ordinary man who never gave up until he found a solution, scientists discovered after his death in 1955 that Albert Einstein was indeed different–his brain was larger than normal and had some features not found in ordinary human brains.
