Einstein as a Teacher

“Never memorize something that you can look up.” Albert Einstein

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.” Albert Einstein

July 28, 1900: Einstein receives his diploma as a mathematics teacher and starts work on his doctoral thesis. Here are two quotes by the great scientist:

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”.

He also said that”If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”.

    This quote here ”If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough” is what makes people think I can be too complicated/complex at times. But really I understand the hell out of this one. Thanks for sharing this little bit of knowledge.

  7. Wonderful quotes by Professor Einstein 🙂 I especially like the one, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

    We have a poster on our wall down in our library of him. I always find it interesting that Mr. Quantum resembles Einstein. They both have that fly-away wild hair, and mustache.

    As always, it’s a pleasure to read your posts!
