A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give the same measure as I have recieved and am still receiving.

Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)

    I’m so tired, Albert. I can’t exert myself anymore. Hope somebody will do a double shift for me. I love the photo, Cherie.

    Do unto others. Remarkably simple, remarkably true.

    “A hundred times every day” Albert? I protest on the grounds of exaggeration, unjustified precision… and then re… “the labours of other men…” No women involved in doing anything for you, ever? … Still, I will forgive you, for the thought is nice even if I need to labour somewhat to correct and tidy it up a bit for you :)

      I suspect in Einstein’s day man was used instead of ‘hu’man, but there again I could be wrong!

      I ‘think’ if I was thinking that much every day I wouldn’t get any work done ;-)
