Einstein the Wise? Einsteinbicycle1

Albert Einstein was once asked by a student, "Dr Einstein, how many feet are there in a mile?" To the utter astonishment of the student, Einstein replied, "I don’t know."

The student was sure the great professor was joking. Surely Einstein would know a simple fact that every schoolchild is required to memorise. But Einstein wasn’t joking. When the student pressed for an explanation of this gap in Einstein’s knowledge, he declared, "I make it a rule not to clutter my mind with simple information that I can find in a book in five minutes."

"Sacred Activism is the fusion of the mystic's passion for God with the activist's passion for justice, creating a third fire, which is the burning sacred heart that longs to help, preserve, and nurture every living thing." - Andrew Harvey
