I am quite confident that I can say with authority
that Einstein, when he wanted to study,
didn't sit in the middle of a school room.
That is probably the poorest place he could have gone to study
When an individual is really thinking,
he is tremendously isolated.
He may manage to isolate himself in Grand Central Station,
but it is despite the environment rather than because of it.
The place to study is not in a school room
