Einstein and The Art Of Genius

To me, the term "genius" doesn't necessarily mean someone who is born with an immeasuable intellect, but rather someone who has the focus and aptitude to intake data and information as a pleasure, which in turn creates the genius that he or she has become through this thirst for knowledge, hence the books reaching the sky - symbolic of "the sky is the limit". In Latin there is a term "art artis gratia", meaning "art for arts sake". The same could be said for knowledge, "knowledge for the sake of knowledge."
Albert Einstein is only one of many who have inspired many of us to study and learn, always seeking and challenging our own thoughts rather than the thoughts of others.
