Here’s a video of wonderful quotes from Albert Einstein PLUS some great classical music for your Sunday.
I absolutely loved this collection of quotes from Albert Einstein. Thank you to my friend, Jeff Herring of fromthedeskofjeffherring.com, for sending it to me. To me, all the quotes as a whole were a reflection of what true “free thinking” is all about.
I believe that much of our current school system is about indoctrination and serves to prevent our children from “thinking outside the box.” Instead of teaching and rewarding rote memorization, I believe school should be about teaching the basic life living skills, such as how to add numbers and how to cook or fix a car. I believe we would be better served by schools with a stronger emphasis on music, the arts and how to communicate. I want to encourage our children about how to think for themselves, how to connect with their own inner, intuitive nature and how to remain open enough and self-loving enough and self-accepting enough through life to allow the expression of and sharing of their own unique talents and gifts with the world. That’s how we get the Albert Einstein’s, the Plato’s, the Nelson Mandelas, the Ghandis, the Martin Luther Kings, the Barack Obamas. Those with the courage and willingness to share their insights and views even if they contradicted those of mass society at the time.
So I just loved seeing all the quotes from Albert Einstein in this video. But the one that resonated the most with me on this particular day though was the following quote:
Nationalism is an infantile disease.
It is the measles of mankind.
Why? Check out my next post here tomorrow to see.
In the meantime, what was your favorite Albert Einstein quote?
Which one moved you the most today?
Love, peace and blessings,
