The quotes of Albert Einstein, who could be called the patron saint of free thinkers and visionaries, appear randomly over a backdrop of sky and white clouds. The quotes are printed in a whimsical style. The design salutes those who have their heads in the clouds, keep their minds open, yet with their feet on the ground.

The Wisdom of Einstein is owned by United Therapeutics.  This turtle was created by Artist Kali Cornelis.  Why is he here in downtown Silver Spring?   Read more about the University of Maryland's Fear the Turtle project
