Learn about, learn through, learn daily
"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning." — Albert Einstein
As you might expect, Mensa members have a great respect for Einstein, and most of them would probably agree with this quote. American Mensa supports learning at all ages and stages of life. We invite you to learn about our organization and also learn more about whatever interests you through our programs and links.
