Quotable #10: Real Advances

“The mere formulation of a problem is far more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skills. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination and marks real advances in science.” – Albert Einstein

  3. 🙂 Yes, too many of our schools provide youth with preformed problems that are merely solvable… rather than encouraging real creativity!
