3 Questions for us all:

Who am I?
Why am I here?
Is the Universe a friendly place?

by Albert Einstein:

3 Important Questions for you to ponder.

This is one of my tasks in the Challenges – which I am woefully behind on. to post in a different format.

I was given these questions to ponder today on a course I was attending. They asked of Einstein at the end of his life what did he still want to know – in one question – and he answered with these 3. So over to you. Can you answer them for yourself?

To see a World in a Grain of Sand

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand

And Eternity in an hour.

Best one liner from ‘The Meaning of Life’ pages:

Education is the best provision for the journey into old age.

Now as an educator I particularly like this one. I am a firm believer that an active mind fends off the memory losses – as much as it can – and that keeping the brain active makes for a happier life.
