15 Life Philosophies of Albert Einstein

13 Jul 2016   Shanti Gowans
 1. Commit to a Worthy Cause
“Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and
soul can be a true master. For this reason, mastery demands all of a person.”
2. Take a chance
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new”.
3. Persist and persevere
“It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer”.
4. The greater the person the greater opposition
“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”
5. Always keep on learning
“Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death".
6. Alter your modality of thought
“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
7. Live a life of service
“The highest destiny of the individual is to serve rather than to rule. The value of a person should be seen in what they gives and not in what they are able to receive.”
8. Always remain curious 
“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”
9. Character trumps Intellect 
“Most people say that is it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character.”
10. Focus on the present 
I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.”
11. Imagination is more important than knowledge 
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
12. Create value 
“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”
13. Know when to change your plan 
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
14. Knowledge comes from experience 
“Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”
15. Learn the rules of the game 
“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”
