Einstein – Simplicity

Albert Einstein“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”

– Albert Einstein

Note:  There is some dispute about whether Einstein actually wrote or said this.  Lord Rutherford of Nelson supposedly said something similar: “An alleged scientific discovery has no merit unless it can be explained to a barmaid.”
