Albert Einstein

All these constructions and the laws connecting them can be arrived at by the principle of looking for the mathematically simplest concepts and the link between them.  - Albert Einstein

It was the experience of mystery -- even if mixed with fear -- that engendered religion. - Albert Einstein

I don't believe in mathematics. - Albert Einstein

Whoever undertakes to set himself up as judge in the field of truth and knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the Gods. ~ - Albert Einstein

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. - Albert Einstein

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. - Albert Einstein

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted. - Albert Einstein

It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity. - Albert Einstein

I do not believe in the immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern without any superhuman authority behind it. - Albert Einstein

Bear in mind that the wonderful things you learn in your schools are the work of many generations. All this is put in your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honor it, add to it, and one day faithfully hand it on to your children. - Albert Einstein

God does not care about our mathematical difficulties. He integrates empirically. - Albert Einstein

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists... this knowledge, this feeling, is the centre of true religiousness. - Albert Einstein

We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. - Albert Einstein

I want to know God's thoughts. The rest are details.  - Albert Einstein

The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives. - Albert Einstein

Once you stop learning, you start dying. - Albert Einstein

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one. - Albert Einstein

The search for truth is more precious than its possession.  - Albert Einstein

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality. - Albert Einstein

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. - Albert Einstein

Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocre minds. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence. - Albert Einstein

Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler. - Albert Einstein

I think and think for months and years. Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right. - Albert Einstein

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over and over again, but expecting a different result. - Albert Einstein

Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind. - Albert Einstein

The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge. - Albert Einstein

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. - Albert Einstein

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.  - Albert Einstein

Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing. - Albert Einstein

Try not to become a man of success, but rather a man of value. - Albert Einstein

The grand aim of science is to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms. - Albert Einstein

If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.  - Albert Einstein

I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious. (letter to Curt Seeling, March 1952) - Albert Einstein

Everyone is aware of the difficult and menacing situation in which human society - shrunk into one community with a common fate - finds itself, but only a few act accordingly. Most people go on living their everyday life: half frightened, half indifferent, they behold the ghostly tragicomedy that is being performed on the international stage before the eyes and ears of the world. (from his speech to the 2nd annual dinner of the Foreign Press Association to the General Assembly and Security Council of the United Nations, Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York, New York; November 11, 1947) - Albert Einstein

Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results. - Albert Einstein

The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious - the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. - Albert Einstein, Living Philosophies, 1931

Any power must be an enemy of mankind which enslaves the individual by terror and force, whether it arises under the Fascist or the Communist flag. All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded to the individual. - Albert Einstein, statement, England, September 15,

What is the meaning of human life, or of organic life altogether? To answer this question at all implies a religion. Is there any sense then, you ask, in putting it? I answer, the man who regards his own life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unfortunate but almost disqualified for life.  - Albert Einstein, The World as I See It, 1934.

You are not thinking. You are merely being logical. - Neils Bohr to Albert Einstein
