November 4th – Albert Einstein

I could not possibly devote a month to highlighting  wisdom, without devoting at least one day to the great Albert Einstein!  Albert Einstein was the German theoretical physicist best known for his theory of relativity  (E=MC2). He is also celebrated for his genius intellect and tremendous sense of humor. 

I could not settle for one Einstein quote, so I am sharing three of my many favourites.

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

– Albert Einstein

So true!  I grew up in small town Saskatchewan where sports is everything.  Athletes are the be all and end all!  I went through the educational system at the top of my class academically.   I came out of the educational system believing I was stupid because I was constantly harassed since I couldn’t (still can’t) throw a ball and ran (still run) like a drunk penguin.

“If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it.

– Albert Einstein
Either I understand math or I have an especially bright grandson.  Driving him home from school recently, Dom told me that two days equals 28 hours because two times 4 is 8,  so  24 plus 24 is 28.  (We have odd random conversations while I drive 🙄).  I told him that two days is 48 hours because he also has to multiply the 20 times 2.    I expected an argument, but he agreed that I was indeed correct and that he had to multiply the 20.  💞

“Two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity; and I am not sure about the universe.”

– Albert Einstein
Let’s just go with a window to the infinite universe. 🙂

That is my wisdom share for the day!

Take care and have a great day. 💞

  2. “Run like a drunken penguin..” made me think of Phoebe from “Friends” and the way she runs. It’s hilarious but the reason is “..I’m more free y’know? I run like I did when I was a kid, cause that’s the only way it’s fun..” So if this is freedom, running like a drunken penguin must be too. Sounds like something fun to try 😉
