Einstein Quote about Fairy Tales

I have always loved this quote and today I discovered the perfect illustration!

æOnce upon a time the famous physicist Albert Einstein was confronted by an overly concerned woman who sought advice on how to raise her small son to become a successful scientist. In particular she wanted to know what kinds of books she should read to her son.
‘Fairy Tales,’ Einstein responded without hesitation.
‘Fine, but what else should I read to him after that?’ the mother asked.
‘More fairy tales,’ Einstein stated.
‘And after that?’
‘Even more fairy tales,’ replied the great scientist, and he waved his pipe like a wizard pronouncing a happy end to a long adventure. via

I think what he was trying to say was use your imagination and think outside the box, scientist have to do that. What better way to train the scientific mind than reading fairytales. I really should be brilliant like him because I adored fairytales and read them voraciously, alas I only have a very average intelligence..... but I still love reading fairytales to my grands so there is still hope for me.
