Thought-Provoking Quotes from Albert Einstein

The interestingly named site, “Dumb Little Man“, recently included a post by Barry Demp that listed 6 of some of Einstein’s more memorable quotes.  The bonus, though, is that Barry Demp also gives his own thought-provoking questions to follow each quote.  I’m guessing that his audience is mostly adults, but I don’t see why some of the quotes and questions couldn’t be addressed to students as well.  For example, Einstein’s words, “Life is all about choices. How many people are trapped in their everyday habits: part numb, part frightened, part indifferent? To have a better life we must keep choosing how we’re living,” are followed by these questions from Demp:  “Where are you currently trapped and limited by your everyday habits and thinking?” and “What new and intentional choices can you make to achieve a better life?”  Depending on the age of the students, you may need to change the wording a bit, but it’s definitely a good thought exercise from which all of us could benefit.

  1. We are the sum of every action, thought and experience; we are in a constant state of “becoming” each second of the day. Each choice we make adds to the total to change the state of “I”, we being never the same person from the second before. Einstein is right life is all about choices, which cannot avoid, for even the action of not choosing is a choice.
