27 Inspirational quotes to keep you motivated

Hi my name is Mike Tucker and I am both challenged and excited to bring my first blog post to you. I am excited to bring to you some motivation that might inspire you start or continue your efforts in learning Spanish with us. I am challenged because I recognize my own weaknesses in writing coherent sentences! I’m not kidding. I write software for a living and it is the farthest thing from writing in complete sentences. Every day I converse with people from all over the country and learn new business practices. My daily routine is full of road blocks and obstacles as it relates to communicating effectively. The best way to learn how to custom tailor software is to just jump right in and immerse yourself in it. Now, this blog post is not about writing software, but is about helping you and driving you to try to accomplish something. I’m really into immersion. Think about it. How did you learn language? You didn’t learn by principles and books, you just got in it and it naturally evolved.

With that said, I want to kick off the first in a series of 27 motivational and inspirational quotes. Each of the next few posts will contain 3 or 4 quotes from an author, scientist, politician, poet, or famous source. I look forward to your comments. Keep checking back for the next set of quotes.

Today we hear from a theoretical physicist, philosopher, and Nobel Prize winner: Albert Einstein. Born in Germany in 1879, Albert Einstein showed few signs of being a brilliant physicist. He didn’t speak until he was three years old and his grades in school were mediocre at best. As a teenager, Einstein motivated himself to learn advanced mathematics and physics because he despised the current education system and saw formal education, at the time, as useless.  He went on to teach in Berlin and developed the general theory of relativity. He is known as the 20th century’s greatest thinker and the first celebrity scientist.

Albert Einstein

1) “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”

2) “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

3) “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”

4) “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
