When you think of the word, “genius”, who is the first person that comes to mind? For many people, including myself, it is Albert Einstein.

Einstein was a German theoretical physicist that changed the world with his philosophies on science and mathematics. But, he was also somewhat of a philosopher with strong views on life and success.

As a so-called “genius”, many people wanted to know what his thoughts were about other things like success, politics, religion, happiness, etc. Luckily, he had many wise words to share with the world.

      Higher education hones a person’s already abilities and skills and teaches them to think. Learning something new never gets old!

      My favorite quote by Albert Einstein is; Education is not the learning of facts it’s rather the training of the mind to think. Something like that.
