Never memorize what you can look up in books

Never memorize what you can look up in books

– Albert Einstein

I’m always hesitant to use quotes that I can’t pinpoint a source for. You never know where they could have been cooked up, but I like this one enough that I’ll use it anyway.

I first heard about it listening to BOL (Buzz Out Loud) and found one reputable resource that uses it (Library of Congress). Still no real information on where it comes from.

However, I think that it is great. If Einstein were around now, he’d likely change that to “Never memorize what you can Google.” 🙂
