One had to cram all this stuff into one\'s mind for the examinations,
whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on
me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the
consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire
year. --Albert EinsteinWe can\'t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when
we created them. --Albert Einstein
Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable
gift and not as a hard duty. -- Albert Einstein
Poor soul, the centre of my sinful earth,
My sinful earth these rebel powers array,
Why dost thou pine within and suffer dearth,
Painting thy outward walls so costly gay?
Why so large cost, having so short a lease,
Dost thou upon thy fading mansion spend?
Shall worms, inheritors of this excess,
Eat up thy charge? Is this thy body\'s end?
Then soul, live thou upon thy servant\'s loss,
And let that pine to aggravate thy store;
Buy terms divine in selling hours of dross;
Within be fed, without be rich no more:
So shall thou feed on Death, that feeds on men,
And Death once dead, there\'s no more dying then.
