Einstein on economic crisis

einstein

"Let's not pretend that things will change if we keep doing the same things. A crisis can be a real blessing to any person, to any nation. For all crises bring progress.

Creativity is born from anguish, just like the day is born form the dark night. It's in crisis that inventiveness is born, as well as discoveries made and big strategies. He who overcomes crisis, overcomes himself, without getting overcome. He who blames his failure to a crisis neglects his own talent and is more interested in problems than in solutions.

Incompetence is the true crisis.

The greatest inconvenience of people and nations is the laziness with which they attempt to find the solutions to their problems. There's no challenge without a crisis. Without challenges, life becomes a routine, a slow agony. There’s no merit without crisis. It's in the crisis where we can show the very best in us. Without a crisis, any wind becomes a tender touch.

To speak about a crisis is to promote it. Not to speak about it is to exalt conformism.

Let us work hard instead.Let us stop, once and for all, the menacing crisis that represents the tragedy of not being willing to overcome it."

So much of the wisdom in these words can be applied to every different aspect of living, certainly to the less positive parts of being a human with feelings. I find it quite encouraging!

Interesting blog..I admire your taste. This is a thought provoking article. Weather we are rich or poor, we all have problems, and overcome them. Personally, I try to stay positive, and keep busy, even if I am truly depressed. I have faith that I will be taken care of, no matter what my circumstances.
