Enjoy a compilation of my favorite Albert Einstein quotes...as well as this picture of him in a pair of fuzzy slippers.

"The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits."

"It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely."

"Everyone should be respected as an individual, but no one idolized."

"You have to learn the rules of the game.  And then you have to play better than anyone else."

"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education."

"People love chopping wood.  In this activity one immediately sees results."

"Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal."

"Logic will get you from A to B.  Imagination will take you everywhere."

"Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love."

April Inspiration


Man, I’m not even taking this part of my life seriously anymore.  I don’t know.  I feel like I’m still waiting for my real life to begin.  I’d do anything to fast forward to the part when it does.  Like, when is this all going to start feeling real?  When are things going to start happening?

I have problems with authority. The majority of authority figures are adults who only see teenagers as an inconvenience; they seem to think we’re too busy being miserable and smoking dope to realize what’s really going on.  If adults spent half the time just listening to us instead of making assumptions then maybe they’d realize that we’re smarter than they give us credit for.  It’s like, when they turn thirty and start having 'real problems' they suddenly forget what it was like to be sixteen and have problems they thought were real at the time.

It's naturally born within us. Problems. The complexity of it has always made us suffer. We challenge ourselves by keeping our heads high and driving past these brick walls. We’re teenagers. All of us have done stupid and obscure things that we may never be able to take back, but that doesn’t mean we fall completely. Some of us have days where we feel like our pinkies are the last and final elements that are helping us hang onto the cliff that we’re trying to save ourselves from. We can’t just fall from that, letting our problems win. Some days we feel like failures and we just want to die.  We are probably the number one generation where we fight through the difficulties of our lives. Some of us have those to turn to.  And others?  We depend on ourselves. It’s sad knowing that people have no one to turn to.  We may have it all: nice clothes, fair grades, a good deal of friends.  But when we’re by ourselves, we peel back these layers and our true selves end up showing who we are and what we’re really going through.

Sure, I can say that no one will really understand how I think. Not even my mom. My friends don’t even come close to how I really am. They don’t know me. Sometimes I don’t even know myself, but maybe that’s normal for me. I don’t know what this post is supposed to point out. I guess it points out a lot of stuff, but nothing specific.

Leslie Clio

Leslie Clio goes against every cliché of the cold blonde from the high North of Germany. From looking at those baby blue eyes, you wouldn't expect a boldly refreshing artist with a voice full of drama and emotion. Her sound is modern Soul-Pop with a touch of retro, and reminds me of Adele but at the same time it's filled with some flashes of self-assured girly pop, a la Lily Allen.

"Everything kind of involves heartache," says Leslie of her songs but as you'll find out, it's as shameless and direct as a slap in the face!  While there's always a bit of autobiography in songs about love and relationships, Leslie says that she's not giving the finger to former boyfriends but just making art, recording the soulful sounds that have been echoing in her head all these years and following her dream.

If you're anything like me, you won't be able to stop swinging your hips while you listen to her latest single I Couldn't Care Less.  Her album definitely gets a special place on my summer playlist ranking.
