It's About Them

Young People … Our Greatest Resource

Thank You AGAIN, Dr. Einstein

Dr. Arden Bercovitz (Einstein Alive) graciously responsed to my last post about Dr. Albert Einstein (you can read it in the comments). In his response, he offered another quote that gives even more insight into the humanity of the man that Time magazine named the most famous person of the 20th century. That, folks, covers a LOT of waterfront.

Thanks, Arden, for this quote from Dr. Einstein:

“We can live our life in two ways. One as though nothing was a miracle. The other as though everything were.”

That’s an interesting quote from a man of science, but Dr. Einstein acted on it. He was, in his time, a Zionist, a strong proponent of the establishment of the Land of Israel. This included the return of the Jewish people to their homeland and the resumption of Jewish sovereignty in that land. The miracle, of course, DID happen, but not without some difficulty, even today. It is my understanding that Dr. Einstein was even asked to be president of the reestablished Israel, but he graciously declined.  

You see, Dr. Einstein was ALWAYS  in the miracle business, one way or the other.

Thanks, Arden. I checked you out on the YouTube site. The look of wonder on those kids’ faces is, I think, part of Einstein’s ongoing miracle.
