Let’s not pretend that things will change if we keep doing the same things. A crisis can be a real blessing to any person, to any nation. For all crises bring progress.
Creativity is born from anguish, just like the day is born form the dark night. It’s in crisis that inventiveness is born, as well as discoveries made and big strategies. He who overcomes crisis, overcomes himself, without getting overcome. He who blames his failure to a crisis neglects his own talent and is more interested in problems than in solutions. Incompetence is the true crisis. The greatest inconvenience of people and nations is the laziness with which they attempt to find the solutions to their problems.
There’s no challenge without a crisis. Without challenges, life becomes a routine, a slow agony.
There’s no merit without crisis. It’s in the crisis where we can show the very best in us. Without a crisis, any wind becomes a tender touch. To speak about a crisis is to promote it. Not to speak about it is to exalt conformism. Let us work hard instead. Let us stop, once and for all, the menacing crisis that represents the tragedy of not being willing to overcome it.
Einstein or not Einstein?
We found this quote everywhere on the internet, often citing the book “The world as I see It” by A. Einstein as the source.
You can find it on self-help, coaching, business websites, etc. Nobody has bothered to verify the source.
You don’t find it anywhere in the book. Nobody should copy a text without citing the source.
Some suspect that it is taken from some correspondence sent to the Spanish magazine “The Crisis” or “Crisis”, but no documents have been found to support this hypothesis so far.
Whether Albert Einstein wrote it or not … These words prove to be a source of great inspiration, for which, after all, those who wrote it have a little reason.
We at Urban Philosophers want to sprinkle some truth into this ocean called “internet”, where verifying a source is a sign of honesty towards oneself. The honesty of feeling the defect of ignorance and the joy of learning. Always question everything and let yourself be carried away by an overwhelming curiosity.
What does the crisis mean for you?
