A Bit Of Birthday Trivia

Albert Einstein was born on this day in 1879.  He is considered the one who developed the theory of general relativity and best known for the formula E=MC squared (sorry, didn't know how to get the 2 in the right spot so thought it would be best to spell it out).  In reading a bit of his biography, I find him to be quite interesting.  It surprised me to learn that he did not advocate using nuclear fission as a weapon.  To learn more about Albert Einstein, you can start here:

And, during my research, I came across some quotes that have been attributed to Mr. Einstein.  I'm sharing a few here and have also included a link below for more.
 "A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be."

"All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree."

"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new."

"Before God we are all equally wise - and equally foolish."

I had planned to design a card to go along with this bit of history, but spent so much time reading him that I didn't get it done.  So, tomorrow, I promise to have a new card design for you.

Until we meet again...
