Another contradiction – #1 and #13.
Pouring yourself into one endeavor and becoming a master at one thing seems to me to be the ultimate “going to the extreme”. Whereas being that Jack of all trades is the epitome of balance… perhaps that means the ultimate path is to become a master at being a jack of all trades :P
I think what it really shows is that there is no hard set of rules that apply to everybody, and paradoxes are innate in life. Everyone’s path is different, and no one can tell you which is right for you. You can take in all the advice you’d like, but when all is said and done, we all have to discover our own way.

We are the universe experiencing itself.
That is why we are here, that is why everything is here. We are the evolution of the very universe itself. We are the complex from the simple, heading towards the ever more complex until everything that can happen and be experienced has been.
We are but one infinitesimally small variable that has evolved for the universe to better understand itself. Everything inside and outside of us arose from the same thing for this very purpose. Everything that is, ever was, or ever will be, is quite literally the same thing. It is all one.

haha, thanks… Einstein gets quoted for so many things he never actually said that I’m always suspicious when I see something like this pop up.
It’s a shame too, because there’s plenty of things he DID say that are picture worthy lol

Nothing like a good old fashioned mis-attributed Einstein quote to spark the fire in us all!

I love the line “the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too”… so true, and one of my favorite life lessons. The moment you make a true decision, it’s almost like there is a burden that is lifted. It’s no longer, “I am going to do this”, it’s, “I have done this, I am this.”
Like quiting smoking. There is no such thing. There are only smokers and non smokers. People who say they are quitting are simply smokers in denial. The moment you decide to stop smoking, that is it, you are no longer a smoker. All you have to do is truly make that decision, and when it happens, you will immediately know it. Like a switch has been flicked. Make that decision and allow no other options, and it becomes the easiest thing in the world.
That said, I’d like to properly attribute this quote to its rightful owner, William Hutchinson Murray, not Goethe.
