This weeks QoTW comes from a book titled, “Theories of Everything” written by John D. Barrow.  He begins most chapter sections with quotes designed to give the reader an idea of where he is going next.  Fair warning, should you be curious and pick this book up, prepare to have your brain stretched and beaten like fresh taffy.

The quote comes from none other than Albert Einstein, who reminds us that although people develop differently, no way is superior.


“I sometimes ask myself how it came about that I was the one to develop the theory of relativity.  The reason, I think, is that a normal adult never stops to think about problems of space and time.  These are the things he has thought of as a child.  But my intellectual development was retarded, as a result of which I began to wonder about space and time only when I had already grown up.”

– Albert Einstein
