To see with one’s own eyes, to feel and judge without succumbing to the suggestive power of the fashion of the day, to be able to express what one has seen and felt in a trim sentence or even in a cunningly wrought word – is that not glorious? Is it not a proper subject for congratulation? – Einstein congratulations to a critic
From the book “Ideas & Opinions – Albert Einstein”
In this paragraph written by Einstein, he discusses the real freedom of speech, the true inner thoughts and critics of one person without having to say what is fashionable of one to say. Not what you wish to hear, or what most people would say, but what after reading one thoughts, one feels and speaks his true inner deep words. Today, and it upsets me to see that most of our leaders, most of the world, today, only speak of what is expected to say, what most would say, what is heard, nothing new. But are we not craving new? Honest truth new? The positive imperfection of what one person can say? Just be human, say something that doesn’t make sense maybe, or say something that only you can understand if you had to, find a new niche? Maybe a new group of people who have looked for someone like you? The rests of the world are followers anyway.
