Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.
i hope i am going in opposite direction🙂

Imagination is more important than knowledge
i imagine a lot

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love

Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character

You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.

    Ok, so that is a down to basics child explanation of the working of the telephone and telegraph.
    Not much to get there.

    “Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.”

    Come on!
    Not everything that counts in life is material (countable) and not everything countable counts for a lot.
    Money and Love, down to basics!

  2. okay, great quotes. thank you for sharing.

    but you are, I believe, wrong about what this one means:

    einstein: “Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.”

    you write: you are strong when your attitude is strong

    ***

    okay, what I believe einstein is saying is once our attitude gets “weak” as in lax, non caring , unprincipled, then our character is weak. NOT that we are stronger when our attitude is strong. and what does that mean exactly anyway? 😉
