A letter from Albert Einstein to his daughter: on The Universal Force of Love

Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) is perhaps best known for being a theoretical physicist and for receiving the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to Theoretical Physics". A lesser known fact about arguably one of the most intelligent men of modern times is that he was also a prolific sender of personal notes and letters upon his own personalised letterhead.

In the late 1980s, Einstein's daughter Lieserl donated 1,400 letters written by Einstein to the Hebrew University. The text of one of them is reproduced below for you. Having been sent by Einstein to his daughter, this letter shows a very different side to Einstein's personality and his outlook on the world.

"When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me, and what I will reveal now to transmit to mankind will also collide with the misunderstanding and prejudice in the world.

I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.

There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us. This universal force is LOVE.

When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force. Love is Light, that enlightens those who give and receive it. Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others. Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness. Love unfolds and reveals. For love we live and die. Love is God and God is Love.

This force explains everything and gives meaning to life. This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will.

To give visibility to love, I made a simple substitution in my most famous equation. If instead of E = mc2, we accept that the energy to heal the world can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is, because it has no limits.

After the failure of humanity in the use and control of the other forces of the universe that have turned against us, it is urgent that we nourish ourselves with another kind of energy…

If we want our species to survive, if we are to find meaning in life, if we want to save the world and every sentient being that inhabits it, love is the one and only answer.

Perhaps we are not yet ready to make a bomb of love, a device powerful enough to entirely destroy the hate, selfishness and greed that devastate the planet.

However, each individual carries within them a small but powerful generator of love whose energy is waiting to be released.

When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, dear Lieserl, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything, because love is the quintessence of life.

I deeply regret not having been able to express what is in my heart, which has quietly beaten for you all my life. Maybe it's too late to apologize, but as time is relative, I need to tell you that I love you and thanks to you I have reached the ultimate answer! ".

Your father,
Albert Einstein

I've just returned from an amazing holiday in South America, Punta del Este in Uruguay to be specific.  It was very special.  Hot weather, laid back attitude, great food, great walks, amazing sunsets, kilometres of beaches with fine white sand, waves for the brave and calm waters for young children.  A holiday to remember and be repeated.

I know its a long way away, 17 hours by plane from London with one change either in Madrid, Sao Paolo or Buenos Aires, but once there it was well worth it.

If anyone is interested in learning more about holidaying in Uruguay, I would be very happy to give you a hand and suggestions.  I am Uruguayan by birth, I left when I was 20 and moved to New York.  That was an eye-opener for 10 years and then came to the UK, where my family originates from.  A stint in the Middle East and we settled back in the UK as my children slotted into secondary school.  And here we are but we escape to Uruguay when we can. 


We have a flat in Punta del Este which is listed on airbnb and VRBO.  (Cosy Sea View Flat on Playa de los Ingleses).   I'm happy to give MMLM Kids followers a 15% discount.  Just mention PuntaHolidays when you want to book and I'll send you a special offer.   Best time to go:  Spring is October through Summer (December, January and February), Autumn is end of March through April).


Let me share a few images with you. 

I have selected a few images which are particular to the coast line though the whole country is beautiful, serene and worth a visit.

Cabo Polonio

Laguna Garzon bridge designed by Rafael Vinoly

Casa Pueblo designed by Carlos Paez Vilaro

It looks like there aren't many people ... there aren't

One can drive for hours and only see a distant farmhouse, horses, cows and sheep grazing in vast fields.

Food is delicious, similar to the Argentinian diet, is based on beef, fresh fish and locally produced vegetables.  People are welcoming.  Main language is Spanish but many in the cities understand and speak English.

If you are looking for a holiday with a difference, I definitely recommend it.

Any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

The Origins of Halloween

29/10/2018 13:29

the origins of Halloween


All children look forward to Halloween evening when they can go out and trick or treat their neighbours asking for sweets and if not reciprocated, a trick is in order!


Build up to the evening begins with carving scary faces into hollowed out pumpkins and placing candles or tea lights inside.  Dressing up involves being as scary as possible; white chalked faces, blackened eyes, fangs, fake blood, wrapping up in tissue paper, and so on.  All great fun. 


We love Halloween and stocked up on glow in the dark mummy pyjamas and monster onesies. 


I didn't really know the origins of Halloween so I looked it up and read that it began as the festival of Samhain. It was part of the ancient Celtic religion in Britain and other parts of Europe. At the end of summer, the Celts thought the barrier between our world and the world of ghosts and spirits got really thin. ... They believed it was the time when ghosts and spirits came out to haunt, and the Celts would appease the spirits by giving them treats.



What was Samhain?

Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset.


Where does the name Halloween come from it's actually two words smushed together. "Hallow" — or holy person — refers to the saints celebrated on All Saints' Day, which is November 1. The "een" part of the word is a contraction of "eve" — or evening before.

So basically, Halloween just an old-fashioned way of saying the night before All Saints' Day — also called Hallowmas or All Hallows' Day.

Here is a website with halloween costumes we can make at home:

How to Make a Reef Knot

17/09/2018 10:15

How to make a Reef Knot

for 7 year olds plus


When I was around 7 years old my father sat me on his knee and said he was going to teach me how to make knots.  I'm a girl and wondered why this was important but I have two older brothers and I wanted to keep up, so I was all ears.  Many years later I'm glad I did as I use the knots all the time.  


Lets start with The Reef Knot.


The reef knot was used for centuries to tie two separate cords together.  Sailors used it for reefing sails, hence the name.  

(Remember it doesn't work if one of the ropes is made of nylon as it will slip)



There is a simple rhyme to remember how to do it

Right over Left and Left over Right

or vice versa depending on which cord you start with


Take two pieces of rope / cord / string


1.  Pass one end (red cord) over and under the blue cord (a half knot) 



2.  Repeat the process, the red end passes over and under the blue


3.  Tighten to make a neat symetrical knot


Hold the two blue cords in one hand and the two red cords in the other and pull tight.

Sometimes an extra half knot can be tied with the ends so as to make it doubly secure.

Trust Me, I'm a Doctor

BBC 2 on Wednesday at 8pm


I realize we are selling children's clothing but I wanted to share a really interesting programme I came across last night on TV.  Maybe I'm the last one in line to know of it, but if you haven't seen it, it is well worth watching.  It has articles about health and diets and the little adjustments we can do to make us healthier, plus other medical advances which are amazing. 


The programme is Trust Me, I'm a Doctor aired on Wednesday's at 0800 pm on BBC Two

For example last night there were articles about



It is recommended one do 150minutes of exercise a week.  

The usual advice is 5 sessions of 30mins each week but it has beenproven that 'Exercise' Snacking' comprising 6 bursts for 5 minutes spread throughout the day gives the same result.   

On the programme they show how they proved this with a team of volunteers.  For us with not a lot of Time on our hands, this solution could be achievable. 


How to Boost levels of Iron in our bodies

Lack of iron leads to tiredness, infection and even heart palpitations.

The body needs its iron intake from our diet as we don't produce iron in the body.  We can get this through foods which naturally contain it such as red meat, or iron fortified foods such as breakfast cereals and sourdough bread.

The interesting fact is that even though there is iron in certain foods, the body does not naturally assimilate it, for instance drinking orange juice or any juice high in Vit. C with the cereal will increase its absorption, yet drinking coffee (which as polyphenols which bind the iron ) make it less soluble, so they suggest drink coffee 30 minutes after having eaten.  Also, cooking spinach in boiling water (rather than steaming it) enhances the amount of iron we assimilate from it, moreso than eating it raw or steamed.  Steaming cabbage preserves most of the iron instead of releasing it into the cooking water. Raw cabbage has most iron as cabbage is high in Vit. C.  This applies to kale, broccoli, cauliflower and watercress.


A cure for Haemophilia A which works

A very interesting article on a major breakthrough for people suffering this condition.

The articles are thoroughly researched and easy to watch and interesting.



If you found this sort of a blog interesting, it would be appreciated if you could let me know. 

Its slightly diverging from the norm of talking about children related subjects so if you think it is irrelevant or interesting I would be keen to hear about it. (info@mmlm-kids.com)
