Life Lessons from Albert Einstein

Follow Your Curiosity:
  • “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”
Perseverance is Priceless:
  • “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”
Live in the Moment:
  • “Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”
Imagination is Powerful:
  • “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
Make Mistakes:
  • “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
Create Value:
  • “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”
Change Can Be Good:
  • “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Knowledge Comes From Experience:
  • “Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”
 Which one is your favorite?

    Follow Your Curiosity:
    “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love these! For some reason today I am particularly attracted by the idea that “Imagination is everything.” I wouldn’t go quite that far, but I do think it’s undervalued these days.

    I like the insanity one. I’ve seen so many people fall into this one through the years, including myself, at times.
