As well as being a brilliant scientist, Albert Einstein also had deep wisdom and insight.  Since I’m currently in holiday mode, I’ll post a few of his comments over the next few days.

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.

It seems to me that to be a man (or woman) of value is all about where we focus.  For success we focus on gaining something (money, fame, popularity) ourselves; to be of value we offer ourselves to give something to others.

The rhetoric is relatively easy; the practice is somewhat more demanding.
