The crisis according to Einstein

“We cannot want things to change, if we always do the same. The crisis is the greatest blessing that can happen to people and countries, because the crisis brings progress. Creativity is born from anguish just as the day is born from the dark night. It is in the crisis that inventions, discoveries and great strategies are born. Those who overcome the crisis overcome themselves without having been overcome.

Whoever attributes his failures and shortages to the crisis, violates his own talent and respects the problems more than the solutions. The real crisis is the crisis of incompetence. The drawback of people and countries is the difficulty in finding outputs and solutions. Without crises there are no challenges, without challenges life is a routine, a slow agony.

Without crises there are no merits. It is in the crisis that the best of each one emerges, because without a crisis, all the wind is a caress. To speak of the crisis is to promote it, and to remain silent in the crisis is to exalt conformism. Instead, let’s work hard. Let us end the once threatening crisis, which is the tragedy of not wanting to fight to overcome it.”
