Einstein’s Simple Honesty
Perhaps part of Einstein’s appeal is his simple honesty. His quotes are laced with it. It’s an honesty that allows him to strip us down to our essence. I believe this kind of honesty is required in anyone who makes radical breakthroughs. To see things as others have not, we have to be able to see them for what they honestly are, to not imprint our expectations or agendas on them. We need to be honest with ourselves about what we see and know that different from our own wants.
That kind of simple honest is essential for true genius to shine through.
