I did not want to directly follow Bruce Lee’s wisdom with some of Einstein’s, but I will say that I also like his thinking and just Einstein himself from these quotes I found.
Plus, yes I am pretty fond of some good quotes or sayings to grow on.
“Much animosity is caused by taking for granted what you know”
How many times have you been given grief or have you given someone grief because you just ASSUMED that they knew something that you knew?
If you think about it, that is an disservice to yourself because you did not give yourself the privilege of knowing and/or figuring something out exclusively.
Give yourself some credit. Especially if it is something that you figured out yourself.
And be humble. And teach. Don’t withhold knowledge. Fill us all in. It just makes you look good.
When someone doesn’t know something or asks you a question and you act like an ass because they didn’t know, what does that do?
Nope that’s about it. Just making you look like an ass and possibly angering the asker or-even worse-making them feel bad or unworthy. It is just ignorant.
Oh, and you may ask who said the quote I gave before?
It was me. That’s right-my profound wisdom I am giving out for free.
You are most welcome.
Anyways, on to why you are here: Einstein’s wisdom…
First of all to not assume that everyone knows who the Great Albert Einstein is, he revolutionized the scientific understanding of many things ‘foreign’ to us such as energy, space and time.
He was also named Person of the Century by Time Magazine in 1999.
But really to NOT have an idea of who Albert Einstein is means you have been living under a rock…
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
If you think about it, no idea even starts without imagination. Someone fills a need by imagining how that need will be filled and going out and creating it. Most everything started out an idea. Unfortunately, some one of them could bring about our own demise…
Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment.
Which essentially means, people don’t want to have their own thoughts and ideas without upsetting the rest of the norm. But that gets you and your soul nowhere.
Plus just because an idea is accepted as ‘normal’ does not make it correct or true.
Trust your gut. If something doesn’t feel right, question it. Or at least don’t go with the flow.
My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.
This right here is what I am talking about. I smiled when I read this as I could not have said it better myself. I believe in something greater than all of us. We are not just all accidents of the Universe.
Once we get past ourselves, we can see the truth(or closer to it) and function better with everything around us once you are armed with your awareness.
The most beautiful experience you can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle true art and science.
I feel like one of our biggest flaws is trying to understand the great things completely. Maybe we should not even WANT to know. Humans, I am told, don’t entirely understand electricity fully but know how to manipulate it to power our homes and such.
Maybe the mystery of impossibly knowing the Universe or God is what the human race needs to keep us curious and thriving.
My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings.
Sounds like me as well. I like human contact from time to time, but there are moments when I am totally content with only my own being.
My favorite times are when I am driving for work on long trips. I generally don’t even turn on the radio. I just enjoy the view and drive in silence. Good times. Listening to self help mp3s are also pretty awesome!!
But of course I am still an advocate for human rights and justice for us all. As we all should.
A great mind with some great quotes for you to chew on.
No I was talking about Albert Einstein. But thank you.
