Albert Einstein thought like me

I have always had thus idea, that if you can't mask something easy for a little child to understand, you reall can't teach.

Today I found a quote by Albert Einstein;

"If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself."
? Albert Einstein

The other day, I was thinking how easy it is to have complex information, but how hard it is to make that information easy to understand for the layman.

Lots of people who have years of accomplishment make tutorials on their field of study, but little to none actually can teach well.

It's easy to have knowledge, but it takes a profound sense of understanding to convey it in an easy to grasp way.


"One should use common words to say uncommon things"
? Arthur Schopenhauer

"Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things."
? Isaac Newton

"I am not a genius, I am just curious. I ask many questions. and when the answer is simple, then God is answering."
? Albert Einstein

"..things are never as complicated as they seem. It is only our arrogance that prompts us to find unnecessarily complicated answers to simple problems."
? Muhammad Yunus, Banker to the Poor: Micro-Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty

"Complex things are easy to do. Simplicity's the real challenge."
? Robert James Waller, The Bridges of Madison County

"Simplicity is a great virtue but it requires hard work to achieve it and education to appreciate it. And to make matters worse: complexity sells better."
? Edsger Wybe DIJKSTRA

The role of genius is not to complicate the simple, but to simplify the complicated."
? Criss Jami
