10 famous Albert Einstein quotes on education may not sound like an extremely interesting topic to you. But you’d be surprised.
We all know Einstein as that genius guy with the super high IQ and the ridiculous hair… and that’s about all most of us know about him. But you’ll discover a lot more about his beliefs, lifestyle and personality by reading the intriguing quotes below. After all, a person’s words practically define him, right?
You don’t have to be a, well, Einstein to understand these wise words either. You don’t have to have the quadratic formula memorized or have a passing grade in Physics. You just have to have a relatively sharp mind.
Einstein talks a lot about the power of the mind in the quotes below. And even though he probably knew the periodic table better than the back of his hand, his quotes are simple. (Well, he did say “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough,” and that’s a bonus quote from him.)
But these words do require a little thinking. You know those books that you’re forced to read very slowly in order to understand? These are like those. You most likely won’t be able to quickly read each quote and then move on with your life. There will be no skimming this list, sorry.
Not only will you have to pause and think in between many of these quotes, but they’ll also stay with you for awhile. In other words, they give you a lot to think about. Those are the best kinds of words- the ones we can’t get out of our heads.
You might write one on a post-it and tack it to your work laptop for motivation. You might tuck one in between the pages of your 5-pound college textbook for inspiration. Or, you might just want to read one to the taxi driver a few feet away. Because you couldn’t resist, and because good words deserve to be shared, preserved and remembered.
