Einstein by Walter Isaacson

 

“A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness.”

Most of the work on Einstein is about how he was a genius and all of his brilliant theories, but this quote gives insight into a different aspect of who he was as a person. This quote goes hand and hand with the saying, “Do what makes you happy.” Einstein believes that instead of committing every second of every day to being successful almost in an obsessive way, you’d still be successful if you just worked intensely in a modest way. This approach would also see you live a happier and less stressful life.
