Einstein Quotes Success

Who would have thought that Einstein had it in him to say something about being successful. I though he was science, education and nothing more. Well it pays to never judge people at all. He truly was a man of value.

One of my favourite quotes of his – “Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.”  I could certainly live with both. But its best to have the latter than the former.

“If A equals success, then the formula is: A = X + Y + Z, X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.”

“Try not to be a person of success, but rather a person of virtue.”

“The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.”

“It is high time that the ideal of success should be replaced by the ideal of service”

Take a pick on any of these points and practice it out. Watch your life take a magical ripple all the way through.
