Positive ADDer Quote of the week – Albert Einstein



“Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.”

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

Albert Einstein

I used two quotes this week or more!

Albert Einstein is considered to have had ADHD and many even consider him to be the poster child of ADD ADHD! I wondered about that and did a little of my own investigation into much of what is written about Albert Einstein and what, he said himself about himself and I can’t help but identify with him. Does that mean I am brilliant? Well, maybe it does, but really, just like you, yes, I am brilliant!

I posted the two quotes that can be considered fundamental basics of an Adder. I am not the least bit surprised or confused by what Einstein meant when he said these. Writing from an Adder perspective, we do not place the highest value in traditional schooling, but that is simply because we cannot comply with many of the educational system’s standards and requirements. Einstein said and wrote that “the spirits of learning and creative thought are lost in strict rote learning”. How true is that, but what is interesting to me is that Einstein was considering things from an Adder’s perspective. That’s why anyone, but Adder’s, has a difficult time in understanding what his meaning was and still is.

We Adder’s learn best through creative thought and interactive learning. We Adder’s tend to forget what we learn in school, but we keep what was the most interesting in our minds forever! Einstein did exactly this and even though he failed his exam to get into the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology he ~’still’~ went on to become the Albert Einstein we have come to know today, perhaps, the most brilliant man who ever lived.

It was through Albert Einstein’s imagination that his theories first developed and then those ideas of his imagination, theories, were taken to the laboratory—not the other way around. Adder’s imagine more than any other type of person on earth and those imaginations are our creative efforts to take what we have learned and be creative. Obviously, the true value of an Adder’s creativity is awesome in its scope.

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”


Albert Einstein

Spoken like a true Adder!
