Sailing with Albert Einstein

Sailing the Connecticut Coast with Albert Einstein - South Windsor, CT Patch: "After fleeing the repression of Jews and intellectuals in Hitler's Germany and coming to Princeton in 1933, Einstein often spent the summers at the seashore. He rented a home called the "White House" in Old Lyme during the summer of 1935 and took his 17-foot sailboat named Tinef with him." (read more at the link above)

Some Einstein quotations:

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex ... It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction."

"The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax."

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."

"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning."

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
