"Almost every single battle. He's backing up. He's retreating he's retreating. He's retreating retreating. Because he doesn't have the manpower to take on the british but he would not give up. He lost two out of every three battles in the revolutionary war lost more than he won but eventually won the war and became the first president and founder of our nation about new england. Napoleon graduated forty second in his class. A class of forty three people not exactly a brilliant guy okay but then he went on and conquered europe okay. How about albert einstein. You're not gonna believe this. But our einstein did not learn to speak. He didn't say a single word until he was over. Four years old. Any who has a child who doesn't say it's first words until four years old. You'd think something's wrong with this child. They're probably stunted in their intellectual ability he. Einstein did so poorly in school all of his professors. All teachers said he'd be a failure in fact he's failed at math and he did so poorly in school at age sixteen. He failed to pass the entrance exam for the swiss polytechnic school. When he finally did get accepted into college he struggled so much that he nearly dropped out and then he reinvented science and math babe. Ruth hit eight hundred and thirty one home runs in baseball but he struck out one thousand three hundred thirty times for years. Babe ruth led the league in strikeouts. Not just home runs. The bible tells us know failure is final but a righteous man gets up and rises again because the next verse. Glaciers six nine. We must never get tired of doing good. Because if we don't give up in the struggle we will get our harvest at the proper time. If you keep on going you don't let failure be final. You know you never know what's going to happen. Let me read you about this guy. At age seven. This man is a little boy at eight seven. His family was forced out of their home and he had to go to work to help. Support the family. At seven years of age he went to work at age nine. He still a shy little boy. His mother died at age twenty two. He lost his job as a store clerk. He wanted to go to law school but his education wasn't good enough age twenty three. He went into debt to become a partner and a small store three years later his partner died leaving him a huge debt which took years to repay at age. Twenty eight after dating a young woman for four solid years. He asked her to marry him and she said no in his thirty s he ran for public office and he lost a couple years later he ran again and lost again at thirty seven years of age on his third attempt to run for office. He's finally elected to congress but two years later when he ran for re election he lost again and he had a nervous breakdown. As a result at forty one in an unhappy marriage is four year old son died at forty two. He ran to be elected as the land officer and he lost at forty five he ran for the senate in the united states and he lost again a few years later he ran for vice presidency and he lost again at forty nine years of age he ran for the senate and lost again and then at fifty one he was elected president united states. His name was abraham lincoln. What if lincoln and said. I'm just going to give up. On the first time i ran for office he lost like eight or nine times before he finally was elected president of the united states and saved the union and save the history of america. You don't know what's in store for you. All of those past failures could be just prologue for your future. Failure is not the worst thing that can happen you. There's a lot worse. Thinks that failure. So don't exaggerate. Here's the third thing you need to remember. I remember everybody fails many ways second no failures final till you. Just choose to give up third remember. That failure is the path to success. If i'm humble and willing to learn from it if i'm humble and willing to learn from it. Failure is the path to success. Now there is no other path to success except through failure. Failure is the door to success. It's how you become a success. Nobody just has success without any failures. Unless you just get lucky once and that's the last time you're going to do that. It's something that you learned from if you don't learn from your failures. Well then that really is a failure proverbs. Twenty eight verse. Thirteen says this in the bible a man who refuses to admit his mistakes will never be successful. Okay you know learning from it and you're not admitting them but if he confesses them for them in other words you learn from your mistakes. He gets another chance. There are some things in life. You only learn from failure. You can't learn them any other way. And so if there's some things you only learn for failure you should stop calling it a failure and start calling it an education. Some of us are highly educated. We've had a lot of failure than our life. But that's how we get our education. That's how we got. There are actually many many benefits to failing in life. You say like what well and give you. Let me give you three or four up. First thing is failure shows us what doesn't work and if you're gonna learn what works then you have to fail to know what doesn't work. What was it. That thomas edison tried. What thousand different elements. Before he discovered the tungsten was the right element for the incandescent light bulb. And if he'd stopped at nine hundred ninety nine there would be no light bulb that he goes. I know nine hundred and ninety. Nine things don't work it shows what doesn't work second they hit does failure develops our skills. Nobody gets good something without failing at it first. How'd you learn to ride a bicycle. Get on and never have a crash or a skateboard. Never fall off and skin your knee or anything else. These all star olympic athletes who do amazing gymnastic feats and do the ice skating triple lutz backwards. They're put in harnesses and they'll do that. Triple lots maybe ten thousand times and do it wrong before they ever get it right. That's the only way you learn. A skill is by doing it and over and over and over and then you get good at it. okay. Most of you know when i started in ministry. I didn't start as a preacher. I actually started in music ministry. I've played guitar and drums. Since i was kid had a garage band grownup loved to sing. The only problem was nobody likes to listen pretty quickly. I figured out okay. I'm not wired for that. I like music. But i'm not wired for it and i quickly switch switch to speaking and then people you know when you talk god uses that it's like you're talking to me now i want did i was. I always that clear. of course. Not my first sermon.

"Then all of a sudden it turned out that Malaysia was really a very interesting person that she was trained as a scientist that she and Einstein had a passionate relationship. They even had a daughter before they were married. No one knows what happened to this child and so people became very interested in Malaysia. So people started to Du and to read between the lines of Elbert Malaya's early love letters to each other fifty four of which had survived mostly from L.. But sadly, very few remained from Malaysia, and in those letters, they were many references to work. That was Einstein described as our work and work we're doing together. Prior to those letters, thirty nothing was known about relationship between Lebron Einstein. So not during this juniors, there was no knowledge of the deep relationship developed between them. Fatty, started together. The letters don't reveal anything much about vers contribution, Ellen Estes, and ease ever todd physics lecturer in London, and he's CO author of a new book just out through MIT praise contesting climbs about Malaya's scientific legacy and Renews Ladders Worldwide did really revealing is the degree that the young Einstein investigate on his own someone furthest reaches physics of that time and he certainly read books with me on this. There's no information about how much manet made any. Contribution. So anything in those terms is share guesswork. You could describe this story as a a nearly twenty year obsession for Ellen, which he's poured into his new book on Stein's wife, the real story of Malaysia Arnstein marriage co-authored with American historian of Science David Cassidy and Ruth, and saw him contributes a chapter two on women in science. What happened was that a kind of myths grew that Malaysia had in fact contributed substantially to on Stein's work. In particular his very famous four papers in Nineteen Zero Five Miracle Year and that she was unrecognised for the work that she had done about this is where the controversy laws rot and I'll come back to the latest but nine hundred and five really was a stupendous year obits. Ns. Miraculous has some coal at that was the year that then twenty six year old heightened Clark introduced the world to. And White for it. They are warriors. The quantum theory of lodge. That's the understanding that light exists in discrete packets or Quanta of energy on a heuristic viewpoint discerning the production and transformation of lot in March that year came. He's evidence for the existence of atoms.

And in September nineteen, hundred, five that famous formula a equals. MC. Squared does the inertia of a body depend on Energie Holton. Yes, it was an almighty year old ride with four papers that pretty much changed our understanding of the physical world and the course of history to top it off Albert was awarded. He's PhD that Ye to. But we're kind of getting ahead of ourselves because this is in fact, nine knees into it and alive is relationship in two years into their marriage. So let's back bit earlier arrived La. Million TV they called me rather for short. Easier Radmila made a series of stunning claims about Malivert and in her twenty fifteen book me mark. Johnston live with Dan Stein. She's a professor emeritus in history in New York and as a former minister in the Serbian government, she's committed to celebrating Soobee history and identity or I was worn on October twenty seven. One, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, one I'm eighty seven years old now. So Red Miller was seventeen when Malaysia died in nineteen, forty, eight and like Malaysia. She was born and raised in Serbia where today read Miller tells me Malivert is celebrated as a kind of folk hero with monuments and Straits bearing her name but I was not very happy there. I. Was a student when the communists came to power the the situation was not that pleasant. There was not enough freedom. So I was looking for a way to get out. Lock Read Mila Malaysia God out of Serbia to win her father moved for his job in eighty ninety two with his encouragement she enrolled at a boys hostel in Croatia as private student. So she could study maths and physics such was her enthusiasm I. Mean That was a mighty courageous act for a young woman then you can imagine. Eventually, it was off to university and again, the options for girls then was so limited in those days. Switzerland was the. German speaking country accepting women at the university level. So malivert moved to Zurich to enroll at the Swiss Federal Polytechnic in eighteen ninety six. Then only the fifth woman in its forty year history to be admitted into medicine physics classes according to Mila. She came from a highly traditional Serbian family but she was lucky that she had a father who was understanding. He saw her a smart interested in in science. So he supported her is she clearly had deepen motivations and aspirations didn't she? I mean she was the only woman enrolled in her class of five at the Swiss Polytechnic, which is wishy met Elva Dan Stein Ninety Ninety see. That would have been all sherry unusual being woman at the time or not only a very unusual. Of. People as a nation s people were looked down upon by the higher nations in in Europe like the Germans. Somehow lower class of people but she was exceptional highly intelligent and punted. They met when they both enrolled on the same course it was actually caused for teaching physics and Mathematics in secondary. School. High powered course certainly equipment a degree course. Einstein was only seventeen and twenty. One Malaysia was will the older woman which over mother would light a rally.

"Einstein rebelled against the authoritarian behavior of some of his teachers and dropped out of school at age. Sixteen later he was admitted to Swiss polytechnic and five years later he graduated with his diploma to teach physics and mathematics but Einstein couldn't find a teaching position so he took a job in the patent office because he had to make money. He wanted to get married. There was already a first baby out of wedlock that was given up for adoption. You wanted to get married and start a family. He needed money so he took the job. He likes to Patna Perfect. 'cause he was really good at it so he did very well at this job has superior like them and when you think about what a pet officer has to do when they get a new invention as they first of all if it's new and they have to figure out what the basic principle is the idea behind a patent application is. There's a key idea that is novel and has some utility so he got very good at reading these applications and seeing what are the fundamental principles by which this invention is supposed to work and are they distinct from the fundamental principles of other inventions. That I would that yesterday. That kind of thinking is not dissimilar to what he does with relativity theory where he's like one of the fundamental principles by which we measure time. We need a clock and we need to have mark an event happening at a certain place. The thought that he came in with the style of thinking in that was what made him good at the patent office or did the work at the Patent Office inform his style of thinking then he would go on to us in terms of you know coming to special relativity and general relativity. I think it's got to be a bit of both. He was certainly exposed to patent earlier because his father's business involved that kind of work but even later when he was professor Einstein hold a ton of patents. Later on you had an idea for refrigerator. Filed a patent and I continued to consult for people on their patent applications as a way of earning extra money and also because he was interested in it so he liked the thinking patents and even after he didn't need the money anymore so I think it's probably a bit that his style of thought mapped onto this so it was congenial to him. But I think it's also the practice of doing it day in and day out created certain patterns of thinking so he is newly married here. She became pregnant before they got married. He didn't marry her. Then which is something that he could have done and sort of legitimized her and the whole thing but because he didn't do that she was sort of sent home. If you will to have this baby and sadly it does seem from the few records that exists that there may have been something wrong with the baby But we basically. We don't even know what happened to the baby might have been adopted might have died It might have been. Her family. Took the baby but basically they have nothing further to do with this baby when she returns she may have survived. You may not have. We don't don't know at present. What happened her? People have looked. They're still looking and that's the only daughter. So Einstein then marries her and they have two children hung's Albert who later on becomes a professor of engineering in the United States and has his own children and then Edward or as they called him teddy and sadly we know. That TEDDY ULTIMATELY DEVELOP SCHIZOPHRENIA. And is seriously psychiatric ill. Reliever America. The first wife also later I had very severe bouts of depression. There may be some inherited mental illness. That is going on in this case. But it's clear that Malaysia had her own struggles going on but Teddy Kennedy really suffered badly. If you grow older in pain I see it. His wife becomes more and more miserable partially because she is physics student. Who would like to be doing worker? Self and really is sort of relegated to taking care of the House and taking care of the boys clearly being relegated to you. Know Housewife is not a happy circumstance for her and and yet there is very little evidence that Einstein in any way tries to help or ameliorate her difficulties. His marriage falls apart. He doesn't have a close relationship with his children. E remarried to this distant cousin but he had similarly like a oddly unrelated sort of setup with her where you know the deal. Was you know she would take care of him and be the wife and he would be able to have relationships outside the marriage as long as they were just one at a time you know sort of serial infidelity and this odd way you know even later of relating where he had this room in the house you know private room where people could come in and meet with him but his wife was to never come in there unless invited because young women came in there who were invited for many people who admire Einstein. The relationships with women is the sticking point. It's unpleasant he doesn't have characteristics. We now consider admiral. There's a lot of infidelity. He was immensely appealing to women and he knew it. But it's almost like he was sort of unaware of who got hurt in the process. You know you hear about serial landers that know exactly what they're doing and they're very savvy about it. They're very well aware of who it's hurting. And they have sort of almost associate Pathak. I don't care by their also people who do things in their relationships where it's almost like socially. They're just not so aware they're not aware that they're angry at that. They're making others. You know distressed or angry or in the case of his anti-totalitarian reaction with professors. And I guess just bring this up. Because they're almost no names to put with Albert Einstein in terms of scientific discoveries and the magnitude of them in the genius of him and such that. You know you think of words like savant and when you think of people who have savant like abilities at the same time that socially they do so many maladaptive things you do wonder about you know what. Today we used to call asperger's now we call very mild autism but people who are incredibly intelligent in the skewed way but socially emotionally have difficulty reading. What's going on and therefore do a lot of things that make it hard for them to stay connected to important people. This grows over time his relationship with Elsa the cousin who becomes the second. Mrs Einstein began an extra-marital affair where Melito would get hurt and that begins in nineteen twelve on a visit to Berlin from progress or living at the time and then when they returned to Zurich actually a correspondence between them between Elsa and Albert where he says. You know. I destroyed your letters as you ask. You should probably send your letters to me at my office so he. He's covering up the tracks as he gets older. He cares less to cover up the tracks whether that's a cultural development psychological development or just maybe secrecy. It's hard to know while the divorce is ongoing. He's basically living with his second by. You can't really call Einstein a narcissist because narcissism is a grandiose view of oneself. That's not consistent necessarily with reality. And in his case well his confident view of himself was very consistent with reality so it makes it hard to call him and Narcissus but he did believe he was going. He was doing these things he was going to do. These things such that. He told me. When I win the Nobel Prize I will give the prize money to you and the boys to take care.

"Milla. She came from a highly traditional Serbian family, but she was lucky that she had to falter who was understanding. He saw her a smart interested in in science. So he supported her is she clearly had deepen motivations and Esperanza didn't she she was the only woman enrolled in a class of five at the Swiss polytechnic, which is wishy met L dance done in idee ninety see when that would have been all Sharyo unusual recipient woman at the time. Oh, not only very unusual. Sort of serene people is nations as people were looked down upon by the higher nations in in Europe. Like, the Germans is somehow Lor class of people, but she was exceptional highly intelligent and ton -ted, they met when both enrolled on the same course, it was actually caused teaching physics mathematics in secondary school. High-powered course, certainly equipment. A degree course. Einstein was only seventeen and at twenty one Malaysia was will the older woman, which L but smother would light a rally against with ride? She famously hide it in the live by the end of eighteen ninety eight it was clear that they were getting involved with each other calling each in, Johnny. Yeah. In lettuce. Yeah. Nineteen hundred ninety job is unlikely so his so far away that I can't give you a little. I'm writing this letter to ask you if you like me as much as I Don to me immediately thousand kitties from your Dolly, August, nineteen hundred deal little when I feel as if I'm not home when I sit to war and looking forward to going home amusing myself studying studying concert, still in concentrating joyous sweetheart with ten two cases from your Alba. God how beautiful the wilder look when I'm you a little one you say, they'll be no happier. Women in the world in which case. The man was also be happy. Farewell. My sweet little treasure ten cues from your. Physicist? Dr polling Gannon argues Elbert malivert were matching heart and mind and science it's clear that was a very organized person. That's the way classmates have described and I it was more like, you're happy. Go lucky type for him yin. And all that. And he was not so organized so together, the they had this incredible team work, they completed each other carefully. They had dispassionate for physics discount passion for physics from using. And for each other. And this allowed them to create something unusual, and it's really out of this collaboration that it came out. Many people have mentioned that the productivity of got Inge dying decline after his divorce from the military, and that's true. Elbert malivert Bose did. Well, the Swiss federal polytechnic, but at the time the odds will possibly stacked against her only four women every ten years accepted a woman and to make things worse for her not one of them ever. Graduated in physics. Some mill ever was going to be the first one and she failed so many past the entrance exam and eighth year. She also strict exempt be passed every year, she passed all the time. But she she did not receive a degree. Things seem to unravel foam alive in her oral exam. They final she filed it along with a math subject called theory of functions. And when she went back to try again the following year in non in hundred and one to hurt a stress she found she was pregnant, and she may not have been feeling well, physically she may have been devastated psychologically that this had happened to her plans, and maybe that contributed to her not doing as well on on the exams. We don't know and on Stein didn't want to marry a pregnant Malaysia until he had a job and a job wasn't immediately. Forthcoming Elbit one reason possibly antisemitism enough that the opinionated Elbert Cape getting on the wrong side of he's professes. So it seems Malaya's career in science appeared to be over before it had begun. She didn't have a degree. So she could not work as a. As a physicist later on or was her career in science. I've d- she instead become Ellwood on Stein's collaborator behind the scenes after all she had the same training. Just not the qualification and these spent all their time discussing and writing and studying together, so that's well documented and their lots of testimonies from their school fans at the time at just into that. It's clear that Malaysia had to give up any desire of a career. Oh pursuit of science. Once I'm married in nineteen hundred three she wrote to Habil friend lane. We have a nozzle hassle which I'm taking care of quite alone. I'm often quite angry at the boring office that takes away so much of its time. So frustrations were brewing. You can imagine. What that must have been like for her who had aspirants to do a doctorate in physics mine. Pression from the wrote including that one that you wrote friend heaven was that cheat settle down to my. Life with children she actually given off on a career. Well, before that when she felt her diplomas onto the second time, and we drew her attempt to doctoral thesis, she had in fact being offered by the head physics professor in July nineteen hundred physicians assistant to him, but fairly examined she couldn't do it. But according to a friend Millais said, she didn't want to take out. The system Chapman preferred to pry for job as a librarian. So the truth is we do not know exactly what are Ben was. We just don't know you have to stand that in the case of marriage. The stuff is difficult because we don't have lots of hot foods. We only have the stimulus some accounts by people have known them. But many people have thought about seeing them their son Hans had remember seeing his parents discussing physics late at night at the dining room table. But it was just a tiny little boy in one thousand nine hundred five it was four years old. So little what would hey, no about what they were discussing not or we saw is parents working together. And he talked about that that went on until nineteen fourteen was ten years when the they separated as an historian. How did you approach the challenge of pacing to give her voice in a way that is there a fiber because Malaysia makes little mention if ever of her contributions to the were convicts in any of the reminding litters she doesn't same Helen her best friend either. So in a way, her voice is entirely absent. So how do we pay to give evidence in a confident way that she was contributor, and we have evidence, for example, one year, they rented a room to a graduate student in physics, and that Roger student observed what they were doing after dinner and after the put the little boy too. The two of them set at the table and worked and worked and disgust. And then at some point I would get up and go to sleep because he had to go to the patent office the next morning to work Miller state and worked this also miliver brother, militia marriage was a medical student at the time Miller spent extensive periods of time with them and eat told Glutz of people how he had seen them always working together. And that was while he was there all the time. Everything evening he stayed with them for month. He was writing to his parents, how hard working then in people and relatives and friends in always when he went back how hard they working discussing catch relating debating reading together. So there's numerous account of that and their friends also talk about that. And then we have even some some. Written documentation, she was doing writing down some lectures for him because he didn't have enough time when he started eating she wrote to couple of the big big shots in in physics on issues that he was discussing he was concerned with instead of him. It's in her handwriting. Max plant was one of the prominent physicists at the time. And he solicited Albert Einstein's opinion on an upcoming paper that he wanted to publish and reply to plant that was in nineteen or nine believe was drafted by Bill, and it's a first draft. So it start that she was a copying something as from Albert's. She trashed this letter to max plan if she was in a position to be able to answer one of the most famous physicists at the time is that she was on par with the science that Albert was doing at the time. So we know that. Handwriting. We know that was yet. Yeah. It's written a search in the archives in the Jerusalem where the estates from Albert Einstein is the second document of the hundred notes for his lecture notes in the Zik in one thousand nine hundred twelve so you can see that they were still working together at that time. So we don't have the hard core evidence. But we have enough enough to know that if you were left alone. He probably would have drifted God knows where in some ways history is implementing of so many other women throughout history. His story. We can never know. Yes.
