Quote of the day : Albert Einstein

“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” by Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein is a renowned physicist who has discovered numerous aspects in life including the theory of relativity and more. However, he was also a great philosopher, too. He once said that everyone is a genius. When you had read this quote, what thoughts came into your mind? Were you agreeing or disagreeing? If you were agreeing, then read this as a reminder. For those who have beliefs against it, this article is for you.

Here is a question for you utilizing the quote of the day. If a friend of yours was beyond excellent at history, would you call them stupid only for getting C in a math test? You would not because they are good at something else! It is impossible to judge someone based on the skills they do not have. 

Moreover, just like the quote says, if you call fish stupid based on the abilities to climb, that fish will live its whole life believing that they are stupid. Thus, would you still call someone stupid based on a single skill, knowing that they will call themselves stupid and get hurt? 

In addition, some may think that they do not own any talents at all. Don’t worry! Our lives are long and you have an extraordinary adventure in front of you! Sooner or later, you will find splendid skills waiting for you!
