  1. I just LOVE Einstein! He is so intelligent, and full of wisdom, and is so humerous to boot! John, DB, and I IMed about his theory of relativity and his humor for about an hour the other day. We talked about theory and practical appplication. I don't think I've had so much fun in awhile! And the man was so hilarious. His quote on success was one of his best! Anyway, Valerie, thanks for a great post that helped me learn a lot. :)

  2. I secong Krissy's comment.

    What a thrill it would have been to know Einstein on a casual level. He would probably keep one entertained for houts.

  3. I agree with you, Krissy and DB. How I enjoyed gathering these quotes!! He was so wise and humorous!

  4. From the introduction to the book, "Cruel Truths, Compassionate Lies":
    Someone asked Albert Einstein, one of the world's greatest thinkers, what it felt like to be a genius. After due consideration, his modest response was: "It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer."
