“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein
From the comments: “I think his point is our society is built around the idea that, in life, you have to complete the journey before you deserve your reward. But society is wrong; life’s reward is that we can experience it AS we live it. Many people focus on career and making money, but they make sacrifices to get there. Some sacrifice time spent with friends and family. Some sacrifice relationships. Some even sacrifice their humanity. And in the end, these people missed out on actually living.”
Everything is alright in the end. If it’s not alright, it’s not the end.
“The best things in life aren’t things” – Art Buchwald
