I think Einstein had such a simple way of saying things. This is one of those great phrases.

About ivonprefontaineIn keeping with bell hooks and Noam Chomsky, I consider myself a public and dissident intellectual. Part of my work is to move beyond (transcend) institutional dogmas that bind me to defend freedom, raising my voice to be heard on behalf of those who seek equity and justice in all their forms. I completed my PhD in Philosophy of Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA. My dissertation and research was how teachers experience becoming teachers and their role as leaders. I focus on leading, communicating, and innovating in organizations. This includes mindfuful servant-leadership, World Cafe events, Appreciative Inquiry, and expressing one's self through creativity. I offer retreats, workshops, and presentations that can be tailored to your organzations specific needs. I published peer reviewed articles about schools as learning organizations, currere as an ethical pursuit, and hope as an essential element of adult eductaion. I published three poems and am currently preparing my poetry to publish as an anthology of poetry. I present on mindful leadership, servant leadership, schools as learning organizations, how teachers experience becoming teachers, assessement, and critical thinking. I facilitate mindfulness, hospitality retreats. and World Cafe Events using Appreciative Inquiry. I am writing and researching about various forms of leadership, how teachers inform and form their identity as a particular teacher, schools as learning organizations, hope and its anticipatory relationship with the future, and hope as an essential element in learning.

It’s unusual for someone with his intelligence to be able to express himself so clearly. I always enjoy his quotes and have used this one several times.
I think you are right. So often, intelligence seems to make it harder to express one’s self.
I’ve used his quotes in a number of training classes. He had a unique mind and a wonderful perspective.
That is a great way to put it. As well, he was my symbolic father according to my students. That was because of appearance and eccentricities as opposed to intelligence.
He has so many to choose from.
Yes, simplicity and brilliance in Einstein is what we as teachers and writers can aspire to. Thanks, Ivan.
You are welcome Sheila.
