It's About Them

Young People … Our Greatest Resource

Thank You, Dr. Einstein

Here’s an interesting quote I came across this morning.

 Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted.”  Albert Einstein

 In addition to being a brilliant physicist, Albert Einstein was quite the philosopher. And, according to this quote, quite a man of values.

I have an acquaintance in the National Speakers Association, Dr. Arden Bercovitz. Arden is Albert Einstein on stage; he brings Dr. Einstein to us in a contemporary, living way. It’s refreshing.

At our recent convention in San Diego, I reminded Arden that he and I were in the same “class” in 1998 in Philadelphia, where we received our Certified Speaking Professional credential (after five years of hard work). Knowing that some of the character specialists in NSA choose to live in the area where their character either lived or did a major work (for instance, Ralph Archbald, who characterizes Benjamin Franklin and looks more like Franklin than Franklin, lives in Philly), I asked Arden if he had ever presented at Princeton University.

“You’d think so, wouldn’t you,” he replied, “but no, I haven’t. Einstein was such a global, universal personality. He’s everywhere, and just about everyone knows who he was.”

Arden’s job is to expand our knowledge not only of Albert Einstein, but on how we can use our minds and energies creatively, abundantly and … unselfishly.

  1. Thank you, Dr. Sutton.
    It was pleasure to reconnect with you, James, at NSA. Right you are to recognize that the essence of Einstein is still relevant today. With that thought in mind, I have two things to share with your readers.

    1- Your readers might enjoy this video review of Einstein Alive in Idaho. It’s posted on YouTube – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWMVrAHxvG4.
    Yes, Einstein’s appeal is universal. Learning to ask better questions and sharing enthusiasm for science and math is fun for the whole family.

    2- Access to my online, keyword searchable database of inspirational Einstein Quotes is also available to your readers. It only requires visitors to my web site, http://www.EinsteinAlive.com, to leave their name and e-mail address.

    I leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Albert:
    “We can live our life in two ways. One as though nothing was a miracle. The other as though everything were.”
    Take care,
    Arden Bercovitz – The Einstein Guy
    PS.
    I’m inspired by your Blog, James. Mine will be up and operational in days. I’ll keep you posted.
