"I am happy because I want nothing from anyone. I do not care for money. Decorations, titles or distinctions mean nothing to me. I do not crave praise. The only thing that gives me pleasure, apart from my work, my violin and my sail-boat, is the appreciation of my fellow workers."
That quote is taken from the writings of Albert Einstein, I don’t really know much about the man and his life's work only that he was smart of course, there is no doubt about that he was also dialectic, could barely read or form sentences correctly, had trouble driving, could not cook for himself and had troubled personal relationships, but he was very smart. I will make a point during the course of the year ahead to acquire some more knowledge about this scholarly man but this link is interesting.
