After All, It Worked
Pretty Well For Him

'Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.'
--Albert Einstein. Like most of what the great one did and said, this seemingly simple maxim contains deeper layers of insight. How are you creating value? While you're thinking about that, you can review earlier mentions of the frizzy haired physicist here. As a Friday bonus, we bring you our favorite cartoon of the week, from the pages of the New Yorker. Have a blessed weekend, everyone.

There probably isn't a writer alive who hasn't entertained such doubts. But we should do our best to ignore them.

You're right about that, Mariana. Thanks for visiting. And how's the weather in Argentina? I suppose it would be spring there now.
