Today I wanted to share some of my favorite Albert Einstein quotes. I thought the one up above there was perfect for the A to Z challenge, so I couldn’t leave it out!
All of these quotes are inspirational to me some how so I thought I’d add them to some pictures and share them with you as well.
First up, remembering to recognize our abilities.
When we know exactly what our strengths and weaknesses are it’s so much easier to work with them. It’s easier to problem solve within those limits and break through the obstacles. It really is an interesting concept.
I’ll admit it. Sometimes I feel like I let the kids spend more time playing than on school work. Then I stop and listen to their play and realize they are incorporating our school concepts into their play! This helps them add practical application which will solidify the concept in their mind. How can I say no to that! Not only that, but play encourages creativity and curiosity. Both excellent in terms of education.
I know, I know. I owe you the story of me being born in a library. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten, although you can be sure I’ll always know the location of the library! Library skills are so important, because as Will Hunting tells us, why spend $150 grand on an education you could get for $1.50 in late fees at the library? Or something like that. Ok, so for a college education you’re paying for a bit more than just the use of a library, however, if you know how to use a library and all of it’s resources, you can greatly expand your knowledge and learn just about anything you put your mind too!
I love this quote and this picture! I thought they worked perfect with each other. The reason I love this quote is because it’s a reminder to me. I need to let my kids get out in the world and explore on their own. Sure, right now it’s just the backyard, but I’m getting to the point of branching out as they get older. I let them make more decisions and either enjoy or suffer the consequences of their actions, whatever they may be. I cringe when they climb to the top of the jungle gym and jump (or fall) to the ground below. I’m always there to comfort them if they need it, or cheer them on as they succeed or pick themselves up, but it’s sooooo hard to let go sometimes!
