Einstein's Quote Reflection

The quote i chose was, "Its not that I'm so smart, it's just that i stay with problems longer." I really liked this quote because it goes to show that you don't have to be smart to solve difficult problems. If you stick with the problem long enough, you will be able to answer it. I also liked this because this is what i am working on with my problems, being able to stick with them long enough so i am able to get a precise answer instead of giving up on them right after i read it. I think that being able to stick with problems long enough to where you can get a good answer is a huge part in being "smart." Smart doesn't mean getting everything right all the time, it means trying your hardest, and not giving up. Sticking with problems for a long time is for sure a huge part of being smart!

  1. I really like that quote and I am very impressed of how you connected it with your personal experience.
    I always have difficulty with people associating "smart" with "intellectual" intelligence. Your insight about "trying your hardest, and not giving up" is more meaningful to me and truly demonstrates a well rounded type of smart and intelligence.
    Thank you for sharing your wisdom, I have learned lots from you this year!
