Albert Einstein Quote

I recently received an email which included this picture of Albert Einstein and the quote.  Included with the email were pictures captioned, “a day at the beach,” “cheering on your team,” having dinner with your friends,” “out on an intimate date,” “having a conversation with your BFF,” and “a visit to the museum,” all of…
