Albert Einstein understood the value of asking questions. He was curious about the mysteries of life & didn’t just accept reality for what it “appeared” to be. Because of this, life revealed many mysteries to him.
The same law applies to you in your life. The more you ponder the “right” kind of questions…the more wonderful things you will come to learn about yourself & the world around you.
Today I’m including a few more of my favorite quotes from Einstein. Read through the quotes, choose one or two that you really like, & see if you can ask yourself some questions that will help you ponder it’s meaning for you personally. Write your questions & thoughts in a journal.
For example, the first quote is: “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
Some QUESTIONS you could ask yourself are: What does this quote mean? How does it apply to me? What do I consider “reality” in my life? Is my “reality” different from those around me? How could my “illusions of reality” be hurting me or those around me? How could changing my “reality” help me?
Do you see how ASKING QUESTIONS can help you dig deeper? Just one of these questions could make you think about yourself & your life for hours.
So here’s some more quotes from Einstein. The idea is to get into the habit of asking questions. Once you’ve written down your list of questions to go with your favorite quote(s), choose the question that “speaks” to you the most & take some time to write down your thoughts about it. You might be surprised at what you learn!
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
“Everything must be made as simple as possible. But not simpler.”
“Life isn’t worth living, unless it is lived for someone else.”
“Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.”
