The ideals which have lighted me on my way and time after time given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. . . . The ordinary objects of human endeavor — property, outward success, luxury — have always seemed to me contemptible. ~ Albert Einstein ~
In a world of sound bites, 140-character tweets, and the rush to attain at least our 15 minutes of fame, Einstein’s words call from another world, another culture, and another time to ground us in healthier ways.
A friend of mine thinks that Americans go through life like stones skipping across the surface, never truly plunging deeply into the full, robust, and meaningful depths where Truth, Goodness, and Beauty reside.
