Give your child a compass and you will get a scientist
When Albert Einstein was 5 years old and he was sick in bed, his dad gave him a simple compass. In fact, this instrument deemed to have shaped Einstein’s career. His curiosity in the unknown thus began.
In the period before World War II, Albert Einstein was so well known in America that he would be stopped on the street by people wanting him to explain “that theory”.

Even now I may confess

Even now I may confess

Goodbyes make you think. Even now I may confess

Even now I may confess

~Alexander Pushkin~

I loved you; even now I may confess,
Some embers of my love their fire retain,
But do not let it cause you more distress,
I do not want to sadden you again.
Hopeless and tongue-tied, yet I loved you dearly
With pangs the jealous and the timid know;
So tenderly I loved you, so sincerely,
I pray God grant another love you so.

Things we should believe

Things we should believe

Staircase to Heaven. Things we should believe

There are things we should believe
Just because we should believe in something, better to believe. Only if you believe you can achieve something. “The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, and fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Choke
