The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination. Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge. If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
- Albert Einstein
