Mistakes belong to doers -Albert Einstein

One day Albert Einstein wrote on the blackboard:

9 x 1 = 09
9 x 2 = 18
9 x 3 = 27
9 x 4 = 36
9 x 5 = 45
9 x 6 = 54
9 x 7 = 63
9 x 8 = 72
9 x 9 = 81
9 x 10 = 91

Suddenly there was chaos in the hall because Albert Einstein was wrong, the correct answer for 9 x 10 is 90 and all his students laughed at him.

Albert Einstein waited for everyone to stop and said,

“Even though I had correctly answered 9 out of 10, no one congratulated me, but when I got one wrong, everyone started laughing; it means that even if a person is very successful, society will notice his smallest mistake and they will enjoy it.”

So don’t let criticism destroy your dreams, the only person who never makes a mistake is the one who doesn’t do anything.”

My Pondering

Unfortunately, way too many are taking their civil liberty 🗽 to attack the institutions which made it all possible. It prompts me to think of a couple tried and true sayings to those who are displeased with our society.

1 “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”

Sure, there are imperfections and issues within our government, society, culture, etc and its a noble thing to expect improvement but its not to abandon or attack it core constructs.

2 “Before you tear down a fence, know well why it was built in the first place.”

We have enemies within our country. That’s an inherent flaw in a (semi) free place. Thankfully our founders were well acquainted with strife, heavy handed government and so forth. Bigger often doesn’t mean better, often it’s worse. So let’s be weary of giving too much power to the Feds.Let’s keep State and Local power and money.
