Adults Should Think About Time and Space

While studying general relativity today, I came across this wonderful quote from Albert Einstein.

“I sometimes ask myself how it came about that I was the one to develop the theory of relativity.  The reason, I think, is that a normal adult never stops to think about problems of space and time.  These are things which he [or she] has thought about as a child.  But my intellectual development was retarded, as a result of which I began to wonder about space and time only when I had already grown up.”

– Albert Einstein
