Happy Birthday Albert!

Happy Birthday Albert!

These MIGHT be quotes by Albert Einstein, but I’m pretty sure today would be his birthday. There is plenty of debate about some of the quotes attributed to him over the years, but whoever said them, I find some truth in each of them.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

And my favorite – (whoever said it) –
Life is like a bicycle. In order to keep your balance you must keep moving.

In the spirit of celebrating his birthday, let’s pick a quote and take it to heart. It could be the start of something truly genius!

If you want to read more about what Einstein may or may not have said, may I suggest you consider Andrew Robinson’s book  Einstein: A Hundred Years of Relativity (2015). His writing has appeared in The Financial TimesThe GuardianThe IndependentNature and The New York Times, among others.
