|covered bridge, Vail Village|
a day at Vail
skiing in the morning
lunch and people-watching in the afternoon
on a quiet side street
Einstein was relaxing
face raised to the sun
he didn't seem to mind my company
here's what he told me:
"I never think of the future. It comes soon enough."
"If A is success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z.
Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut."
"Anyone who has never made a mistake
has never tried anything new."
"Not everything that counts can be counted,
and not everything that can be counted counts."
"The difference between stupidity and genius
is that genius has its limits."
"if you can't explain it simply,
you don't understand it well enough."
Wow - I'm glad I had this chance meeting!
(musing about these ideas is my One Good Thing)
