“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid”
Building on yesterday’s post, this statement takes it one step further. Mr. Einstein, one of the greatest minds understood that there is genius inside every one of us. Yes, even those people in the ‘People of Wal-Mart’ photos. Sometimes it is very hard for us to see, but there is beauty and worth in each and every one of us. So next time you see someone you may be tempted to think less of, remember they just might be out of their element. I have the honor of helping out at a meal program for the homeless once a month, and let me tell you I have learned more about how to survive on very little, how to see the bright side of even the darkest of situations and even the importance of Love, friendship and things we may forget are what is really valuable. It is sad to see how many people are dismissed just because the treasure in them is either not on display or has not been discovered. Even Albert Einstein was kicked out of school because they believed he was not smart enough and had problems tying his shoes. Yet he went on to compose the theory of relativity. So let us all appreciate the genius in ourselves and each other.
