Weekly Photo Challenge: noMovement

This is a picture taken in 2007, during my flight to a Greek island for my summer vacation. Looks as though down on the ground there’s summer and up in the sky there are snowy mountains.

I know what you are thinking, the idea is to “Share a picture that means MOVEMENT to you!” Nope, i am not mistaking, and yeap, this isn’t a static picture even if it looks like one…

Say hello to the “theory of relativity”. I am sure you have all heard of it, of how a moment of your hands on a hot pan seems like eternity, and a moment of your hands on a beautiful woman just seems too little. And since Mr Einstein was a humorous person, i think he would appreciate this prezi, about the magical theory of relativity, explained in an easy and colourful way! So everything is relative, including movement and the way each one of us sees and feels it. Differently.

And since i begun talking about Albert, it’s only fair to mention a few of his “other theories”, the non-mathematical ones! 

theory of relativity

1. Follow Your Curiosity “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

2. Perseverance is Priceless “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

3. Focus on the Present “Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”

4. The Imagination is Powerful “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

5. Make Mistakes “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

6. Live in the Moment “I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.”

7. Create Value “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

8. Don’t be repetitive “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

9. Knowledge Comes From Experience “Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”

10. Learn the Rules and Then Play Better “You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”

  1. I nearly posted a photo from a plane myself, but Iceland won. But even if I had, I’d have never have thought to combine it with the genius, both in science and living life, that is Einstein. Nice one!

  2. Gorgeous (fluffy) shot. Passionately curious! Love it! I WILL be remembering that one, and using it, if you and Albert don’t mind. 😉

    • Yes, aren’t they fluffy??? That is a great way to describe those clouds! You have my permission and blessing to use whatever you like from my blog! I think Albert must have been an easy-going guy so i guess he wouldn’t have a problem….. 🙂

  3. Einstein is my hero! His quote about perserverance is the one I use most to prod my children along in their studies 🙂 Thank you for providing an collection of Einstein quotes…more ammunition for me!

talk to me! :)
