who believe they can.” He met with plenty criticism of his writ- ings with the witty response: “But far more nu- merous was the herd of such, Who think too little, and who talk too much.” It was
my luck to be brought up
mid-Man- h a t t a n , NYC, where unexpected encounters with celeb- rities was not at all unusual. All who know me know how much I value still my several surprising “chats” with Albert Einstein, beginning in 1939, when I handed him one of my unbelievably heavy, steel- wheeled roller skates to hold since I was in the process of taking off the other clamped on my shoe— all while we were waiting for the elevator in the building where my parents and I lived. During another of the subsequent wait- for-elevator meetings, Einstein
asked me if I still “hated” arithme- tic. Pleased that it was still true, he then encouraged me to ask my parents for a prism. “You will like what h a p p e n s when you see the light bends and you will dis- cover a rain- bow of col- ors.” Lovely to dwell on such a sweet memory. Not at all

agreed that we could stroll to- gether for the next several blocks. No conversation, just plenty of smiling. “That was very nice” she said sweetly when we parted ways. As for other words to live by,
I like Katharine Hepburn’s com- ment: “Don’t be a ‘no’ person.” And, my all-time favorite, Albert Schweitzer, who wrote: “Be kind to each other and do what you can for other people.”
