My dear,

Who would you ask to lead you? The being who can walk a path because he’s been showed the way, or the being who can walk a path unknown to him in any manner and find his way?

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.

Knowledge is handed down from age to age, it’s actually easy to be knowledgeable – the path is laid out for you.

But being creative has no precedent, because if something has a precedent it stop being creative. And thus the creative being walks a path unknown with no guide or lights to brighten the way forward.

If you had to ask me, I’d choose the creative being over the knowledgeable being to be my guide any day of the week.

Falsely yours,
Albert Einstein
