I guess I am just curious ...

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT'S relativity.
- Albert Einstein



If A equals success, then the formula is: A = X + Y + Z, X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.
- Albert Einstein



I don't believe in mathematics.
- Albert Einstein



Truth is what stands the test of experience.
- Albert Einstein



The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.
- Albert Einstein



I am neither especially clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious.
- Albert Einstein



Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
- Albert Einstein



If you are out to describe the truth, leave elegance to the tailor.
- Albert Einstein



The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
- Albert Einstein



We have to do the best we can. This is our sacred human responsibility.
- Albert Einstein



Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.
- Albert Einstein



It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them.
- Mark Twain



Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
- Mark Twain



Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she has laid an asteroid.
- Mark Twain



If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
- Mark Twain



If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything.
- Mark Twain



We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark. The real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
- Plato

... and I just do the best that I can. What about you? Do any of these quotes feel close to your heart?

Have a great Monday!

If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything. Hmmm? How true! I've told great lies because I've got a good memory! Nothing to be proud of, but a talent nontheless! Hotboy

He is really a genius . The latest report about Einstein is that he's got a lot of secret lovers . Anybody who can do that is a real genius !

Cinderella said...

BeckEye said...

Einstein was a Jersey boy. But I can't say I feel any smarter living here.

Fred said...

sans said...

Wow, those guys are some sort of geniuses or something.

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." Small people beget small attitutes and small accomplishments. I mean small on the inside of course. This is a great post Lee Ann. Hope you are well. Take care babe.

Phats said...

I roll with this quote quite frequently

I don't believe in mathematics.

:)

MIA said...

I just don't like the whole mathematics thing. Especially when I'm shopping and it's 50% off and then another 33% off of that and then take an extra 10% if it's Tuesday.. Do you think Albert was shopping when he wrote that? makes sense doesn't it.

jiggs said...

Bathroom Hippo said...

truckdriver_sefl said...

Lee Ann said...

The Appalachianist said...

I would say the one about the dog.

JLee said...

those are great! I wished I had your "best pickup lines" today. I was on a shoot for a program about relationships and we were talking about those funny lines. I could only think of about 2 or 3 of them! lol

Lee Ann said...

App ~ If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man...definitely something to make you think!

Jlee ~ Those do make good conversation!

The Appalachianist said...

Lee Ann said...

App ~ Hey cutie...just don't know! ;)
