A career of healing
Thinking of Others
The last illness
Was Einstein happy?
"Albert Einstein's early years (were) filled with anxieties and disappointments - yet (he) ended up inventing a powerful and useful life.
(He had a strategy) for building meaning into his experience.
This strategy consists of extracting from the order achieved by past generations patterns that will help avoid disorder in one's own mind.
There is much knowledge - or well-ordered information - accumulated in culture, ready for this use. Great music, architecture, art, poetry, drama, dance, philosophy and religion are there for anyone to see as examples of how harmony can be imposed on chaos."
