Einstein's Wisdom

And on the lighter side for a Friday. . .

I am certainly no Einstein, but I recognize smarts when I read it. At there are many pithy thoughts worth contemplating believed to have originated with Albert Einstein. Some examples:

"Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school."

"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."

And being virtual, one of my favorites . . .
"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."

For those with a more serious interest in physics or Einstein's "annus mirabilis" (miracle year of 1905), try the website of the 2002 Einstein exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History . It gives an explanation even a virtual cat can understand of the theories of Special and General Relativity and, of course, the famous e=mc2.
