“I am not more gifted than the average human being. If you know anything about history, you would know that is so--what hard times I had in studying and the fact that I do not have a memory like some other people do… I am just more curious than the average person and I will not give up on a problem until I have found the proper solution. This is one of my greatest satisfactions in life--solving problems--and the harder they are, the more satisfaction do I get out of them. Maybe you could consider me a bit more patient in continuing with my problem than is the average human being. Now, if you understand what I have just told you, you see that it is not a matter of being more gifted but a matter of being more curious and maybe more patient until you solve a problem.” ― Albert Einstein

“Paper is to write things down that we need to remember. Our brains are used to think.”

“Paper is to write things down that we need to remember. Our brains are used to think.” ― Albert Einstein

“The devil has put a penalty on all things we enjoy in life. Either we suffer in health or we suffer in soul or we get fat.” ― Albert Einstein

“This topic brings me to that worst outcrop of herd life, the military system, which I abhor... This plague-spot of civilization ought to be abolished with all possible speed. Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism -- how passionately I hate them!” ― Albert Einstein

“The religious geniuses of all ages have been distinguished by this kind of religious feeling, which knows no dogma and no God conceived in man's image; so that there can be no church whose central teachings are based on it. Hence it is precisely among the heretics of every age that we find men who were filled with this highest kind of religious feeling and were in many cases regarded by their contemporaries as atheists, sometimes also as saints. Looked at in this light, men like Democritus, Francis of Assisi, and Spinoza are closely akin to one another.” ― Albert Einstein

“To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is a something that our mind cannot grasp and whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirectly and as a feeble reflection, this is religiousness. In this sense I am religious.” ― Albert Einstein

“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”

“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” ― Albert Einstein

“It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.” ― Albert Einstein

“I fully agree with you about the significance and educational value of methodology as well as history and philosophy of science. So many people today - and even professional scientists - seem to me like somebody who has seen thousands of trees but has never seen a forest. A knowledge of the historic and philosophical background gives that kind of independence from prejudices of his generation from which most scientists are suffering. This independence created by philosophical insight is - in my opinion - the mark of distinction between a mere artisan or specialist and a real seeker after truth. [Correspondance to Robert Thorton in 1944]” ― Albert Einstein

“The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.” ― Albert Einstein

“I maintain that the cosmic religious feeling is the strongest and noblest motive for scientific research.” ― Albert Einstein

“When we first got married, we made a pact. It was this: In our life together, it was decided I would make all of the big decisions and my wife would make all of the little decisions. For fifty years, we have held true to that agreement. I believe that is the reason for the success in our marriage. However, the strange thing is that in fifty years, there hasn’t been one big decision.” ― Albert Einstein

“My sense of god is my sense of wonder about the universe.” ― Albert Einstein

“The pursuit of knowledge for its own sake, an almost fanatical love of justice and the desire for personal independence -- these are the features of the Jewish tradition which make me thank my stars that I belong to it.” ― Albert Einstein

“A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years but a photograph always remains the same. How nice to look at a photograph of mother or father taken many years ago. You see them as you remember them. But as people live on, they change completely. That is why I think a photograph can be kind.” ― Albert Einstein

“A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness. Imperial Hotel note paper, Tokyo Japan, 1922” ― Albert Einstein

“How can cosmic religious feeling be communicated from one person to another, if it can give rise to no definite notion of a God and no theology? In my view, it is the most important function of art and science to awaken this feeling and keep it alive in those who are receptive to it.” ― Albert Einstein

“That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.” ― Albert Einstein

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales. When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking” ― Albert Einstein

“Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.” ― Albert Einstein

“It is important to foster individuality, for only the individual can produce the new ideas.” ― Albert Einstein

“What is the meaning of human life, or, for that matter, of the life of any creature? To know the answer to this question means to be religious. You ask: Does it make any sense, then, to pose this question? I answer: The man who regards his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unhappy but hardly fit for life.” ― Albert Einstein

“The right to search for the truth implies also a duty; one must not conceal any part of what one has recognized to be the truth.” ― Albert Einstein

“The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and science. He who knows it not and can no longer wonder, no longer feel amazement, is as good as dead, a snuffed-out candle.” ― Albert Einstein

“Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools.” ― 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

“Only the Catholic Church protested against the Hitlerian onslaught on liberty. Up till then I had not been interested in the Church, but today I feel a great admiration for the Church, which alone has had the courage to struggle for spiritual truth and moral liberty” ― Albert Einstein

“As far as I'm concerned, I prefer silent vice to ostentatious virtue.” ― Albert Einstein

“So long as there are men, there will be wars.” ― Albert Einstein

Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in fact, religious.” ― Albert Einstein

“Gandhi, the greatest political genius of our time, has pointed the way. He was shown of what sacrifices people are capable once they have found the right way. His work for the liberation of India is a living testimony to the fact that a will governed by firm conviction is stronger than a seemingly invincible material power.” ― Albert Einstein

“The life of the individual has meaning only insofar as it aids in making the life of every living thing nobler and more beautiful. Life is sacred, that is to say, it is the supreme value, to which all other values are subordinate.” ― Albert Einstein

“everyday is an oportunity to make a new happy ending.........” ― Albert Einstein

“It is very difficult to explain this feeling to anyone who is entirely without it, especially as there is no anthropomorphic conception of God corresponding to it. The individual feels the nothingness of human desires and aims and the sublimity and marvelous order which reveal themselves both in Nature and in the world of though. He looks upon individual existence as a sort of prison and wants to experience the universe as a single significant whole.” ― Albert Einstein

“the scientist's religious feeling takes the form of a rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural law, which reveals an intelligence of such superiority that, compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is utterly insignificant reflection. This feeling is the guiding principle of his life and work, in so far as he succeeds in keeping himself from the shackles of selfish desire. It is beyond question closely akin to that which has possessed the religious geniuses of all ages.” ― Albert Einstein

“The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything except our thinking. Thus, we are drifting toward catastrophe beyond conception. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.” ― Albert Einstein

“This crippling of individuals I consider the worst evil of capitalism. Our whole educational system suffers from this evil. An exaggerated competitive attitude is inculcated into the student, who is trained to worship acquisitive success as a preparation for his future career.” ― Albert Einstein

“Too many of us look upon Americans as dollar chasers. This is a cruel libel, even if it is reiterated thoughtlessly by the Americans themselves.” ― Albert Einstein

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” ― Albert Einstein

“As long as there are sovereign nations possessing great power, war is inevitable.” ― Albert Einstein

“Work is the only thing that gives substance to life.” ― Albert Einstein

“It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty. To the contrary, I believe it would be possible to rob even a healthy beast of prey of its voraciousness, if it were possible, with the aid of a whip, to force the beast to devour continuously, even when not hungry.” ― Albert Einstein

“The most important human endeavor is the striving for morality in our actions. Our inner balance and even our very existence depend on it. Only morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to life. To make this a living force and bring it to clear consciousness is perhaps the foremost task of education. The foundation of morality should not be made dependent on myth nor tied to any authority lest doubt about the myth or about the legitimacy of the authority imperil the foundation of sound judgment and action.” ― Albert Einstein

“All of us who are concerned for peace and triumph of reason and justice must be keenly aware how small an influence reason and honest good will exert upon events in the political field.” ― Albert Einstein

“there is found a third level of religious experience, even if it is seldom found in a pure form. I will call it the cosmic religious sense. This is hard to make clear to those who do not experience it, since it does not involve an anthropomorphic idea of God; the individual feels the vanity of human desires and aims, and the nobility and marvelous order which are revealed in nature and in the world of thought. He feels the individual destiny as an imprisonment and seeks to experience the totality of existence as a unity full of significance. Indications of this cosmic religious sense can be found even on earlier levels of development—for example, in the Psalms of David and in the Prophets. The cosmic element is much stronger in Buddhism, as, in particular, Schopenhauer's magnificent essays have shown us. The religious geniuses of all times have been distinguished by this cosmic religious sense, which recognizes neither dogmas nor God made in man's image. Consequently there cannot be a church whose chief doctrines are based on the cosmic religious experience. It comes about, therefore, that we find precisely among the heretics of all ages men who were inspired by this highest religious experience; often they appeared to their contemporaries as atheists, but sometimes also as saints.” ― Albert Einstein

“I want to oppose the idea that the school has to teach directly that special knowledge and those accomplishments which one has to use later directly in life. The demands of life are much too manifold to let such a specialized training in school appear possible [...] The development of general ability for independent thinking and judgement should always be placed foremost.” ― Albert Einstein

“Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity, but don't rule out malice.” ― Albert Einstein

“Just because you don't believe in something doesn't mean it isn't true.” ― Albert Einstein

“Bureaucracy is the death of all sound work.” ― Albert Einstein

“Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

“Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” ― Albert Einstein

“Life is sacred, that is to say, it is the supreme value, to which all other values are subordinate.” ― Albert Einstein

“Those whose acquaintance with scientific research is derived chiefly from its practical results easily develop a completely false notion of the mentality of the men who, surrounded by a skeptical world, have shown the way to kindred spirits scattered wide through the world and through the centuries. Only one who has devoted his life to similar ends can have a vivid realization of what has inspired these men and given them the strength to remain true to their purpose in spite of countless failures. It is cosmic religious feeling that gives a man such strength. A contemporary has said, not unjustly, that in this materialistic age of ours the serious scientific workers are the only profoundly religious people.” ― Albert Einstein

“How was I able to live alone before, my little everything? Without you I lack self-confidence, passion for work, and enjoyment of life--in short, without you, my life is no life. [Written to his wife, Mileva]” ― Albert Einstein

“The health of society thus depends quite as much on the independence of the individuals composing it as on their close political cohesion.” ― Albert Einstein

“A ship is always safe at the shore, but that is not what it is built for.”

“A ship is always safe at the shore, but that is not what it is built for.” ― Albert Einstein

“I do not believe that civilization will be wiped out in a war fought with the atomic bomb. Perhaps two-thirds of the people of the Earth might be killed, but enough men capable of thinking, and enough books, would be left to start again, and civilization could be restored.” ― Albert Einstein

“Growth comes through analogy; through seeing how things connect, rather than only seeing how they might be different.” ― Albert Einstein

“The most beautiful and deepest experience a man can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the underlying principle of religion as well as all serious endeavor in art and science. He who never had this experience seems to me, if not dead, then at least blind. To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is a something that our mind cannot grasp and whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirectly and as a feeble reflection, this is religiousness. In this sense I am religious. To me it suffices to wonder at these secrets and to attempt humbly to grasp with my mind a mere image of the lofty structure of all that there is.” ― Albert Einstein

“It is easier to denature plutonium than to denature the evil spirit of man.”

“It is easier to denature plutonium than to denature the evil spirit of man.” ― Albert Einstein

“There are two important things for full success in life:

“There are two important things for full success in life: 1. Don´t tell everything you know.” ― Albert Einstein

“Yes, we have to divide up our time like that, between our politics and our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation stands forever. ” ― Albert Einstein

“Numerous are the academic chairs, but rare are wise and noble teachers. Numerous and large are the lecture halls, but far from numerous the young people who genuinely thirst for truth and justice. Numerous are the wares that nature produces by the dozen, but her choice products are few. We all know that, so why complain? Was it not always thus and will it not always thus remain? Certainly, and one must take what nature gives as one finds it. But there is also such a thing as a spirit of the times, an attitude of mind characteristic of a particular generation, which is passed on from individual to individual and gives its distinctive mark to a society. Each of us has to his little bit toward transforming this spirit of the times.” ― Albert Einstein

“Philosophers play with the word, like a child with a doll. It does not mean that everything in life is relative.” ― Albert Einstein

“Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shpwrecked by the laughter of the gods.” ― Albert Einstein

“Don't do anything that goes against your conscience, even if your country says so.” ― Albert Einstein

“You are right in speaking of the moral foundations of science, but you cannot turn around and speak of the scientific foundations of morality.” ― Albert Einstein

“Morality is of the highest importance -- but for us, not for God.” ― Albert Einstein

“Concepts that have proven useful in ordering things easily achieve such authority over us that we forget their earthly origins and accept them as unalterable givens. Thus they come to be stamped as “necessities of thought”, “a priori givens”, etc. The path of scientific advance is often made impassable for a long time through such errors. For that reason, it is by no means an idle game if we become practiced in analyzing the long commonplace concepts and exhibiting those circumstances upon which their justification and usefulness depend, how they have grown up, individually, out of the givens of experience. By this means, their all-too-great authority will be broken. They will be removed if they cannot be properly legitimated, corrected if their correlation with given things be far too superfluous, replaced by others if a new system can be established that we prefer for whatever reason.” ― Albert Einstein

“A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future.” ― Albert Einstein

“I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music” ― Albert Einstein

“The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.” ― Albert Einstein

“Dear Habicht, / Such a solemn air of silence has descended between us that I almost feel as if I am committing a sacrilege when I break it now with some inconsequential babble... / What are you up to, you frozen whale, you smoked, dried, canned piece of soul...?” ― Albert Einstein

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. He is considered successful in our day who gets more out of life than he puts in. But a man of value will give more than he receives.” ― Albert Einstein

“We must be prepared to make the same heroic sacrifices for the cause of peace that we make ungrudgingly for the cause of war.” ― Albert Einstein

“This is a question too difficult for a mathematician. It should be asked of a philosopher"(when asked about completing his income tax form)” ― Albert Einstein

“The only justifiable purpose of political institutions is to ensure the unhindered development of the individual.” ― Albert Einstein

“If I were not a Jew I would be a Quaker.” ― Albert Einstein

“When you look at yourself from a universal standpoint, something inside always reminds or informs you that there are bigger and better things to worry about.” ― 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

“Science can only ascertain what is, but not what should be, and outside of its domain value, elly judgments of all kinds remain necessary.” ― Albert Einstein

“Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.”

“Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.” ― Albert Einstein

“Coincidence is God's way of staying anonymous.” ― Albert Einstein

“Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism -how passionately I hate them!” ― Albert Einstein

“I think that only daring speculation can lead us further and not accumulation of facts.” ― Albert Einstein

“Don't think about why you question, simply don't stop questioning. Don't worry about what you can't answer, and don't try to explain what you can't know. Curiosity is its own reason. Aren't you in awe when you contemplate the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure behind reality? And this is the miracle of the human mind--to use its constructions, concepts, and formulas as tools to explain what man sees, feels and touches. Try to comprehend a little more each day. Have holy curiosity.” ― Albert Einstein

“There are two means of refuge from the misery of life - music and cats.” ― Albert Einstein

“A problem can't be solved with the same level of thinking that created it.” ― Albert Einstein

“There is nothing divine about morality, it is a purely human affair.” ― Albert Einstein

“live as if you were to die tommorow. dream as if you were to live forever” ― Albert Einstein

“Don't dream of being a good person, be a human being is valuable and gives value to life.” ― Albert Einstein

“We are in the position of a little child, entering a huge library whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written those books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order, which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of the human mind, even the greatest and most cultured, toward God. We see a universe marvelously arranged, obeying certain laws, but we understand the laws only dimly. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that sways the constellations.” ― Albert Einstein

“I assert that the cosmic religious experience is the strongest and the noblest driving force behind scientific research.” ― Albert Einstein

“The perfection of means and the confusion of ends seems to be our problem.” ― Albert Einstein

“The finest emotion of which we are capable is the mystic emotion. Herein lies the germ of all art and all true science. Anyone to whom this feeling is alien, who is no longer capable of wonderment and lives in a state of fear is a dead man. To know that what is impenetrable for us really exists and manifests itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, whose gross forms alone are intelligible to our poor faculties – this knowledge, this feeling … that is the core of the true religious sentiment. In this sense, and in this sense alone, I rank myself among profoundly religious men.” ― Albert Einstein

“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.” ― Albert Einstein

“I am not more gifted than anybody else. I am just more curious than the average person and I will not give up a problem until I have found the proper solution.” ― Albert Einstein

“It is this mythical, or rather symbolic, content of the religious traditions which is likely to come into conflict with science. This occurs whenever this religious stock of ideas contains dogmatically fixed statements on subjects which belong in the domain of science.” ― Albert Einstein

“Private capital tends to become concentrated in few hands, partly because of competition among the capitalists, and partly because technological development and the increasing division of labor encourage the formation of larger units of production at the expense of smaller ones. The result of these developments is an oligarchy of private capital the enormous power of which cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society. This is true since the members of legislative bodies are selected by political parties, largely financed or otherwise influenced by private capitalists who, for all practical purposes, separate the electorate from the legislature. The consequence is that the representatives of the people do not in fact sufficiently protect the interests of the underprivileged sections of the population. Moreover, under existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio, education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights.” ― Albert Einstein

“If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.” ― Albert Einstein

“[Capitalism] as it exists today is, in my opinion, the real source of evils. I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals. In such an economy, the means of production are owned by society itself and are utilized in a planned fashion.” ― Albert Einstein

“Non possiamo risolvere i problemi con lo stesso tipo di pensiero che abbiamo usato quando li abbiamo creati.” ― Albert Einstein

“The world won't be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.” ― Albert Einstein

“Make things as simple as possible, but no simpler.”

“Make things as simple as possible, but no simpler.” ― Albert Einstein

“More and more I come to value charity and love of one's fellow being above everything else...All our lauded technological progress-our very civilization-is like the axe in the hand of the pathological criminal.” ― Albert Einstein

“artificial intellegance is no match for natural stupidity” ― Albert Einstein

“Man is here for the sake of other men - above all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness depends.” ― Albert Einstein

“The state was made for man, not man for state.” ― Albert Einstein

“True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist.” ― Albert Einstein

“I gang my own gait and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties I have never lost an obstinate sense of detachment, of the need for solitude — a feeling which increases with the years.” ― Albert Einstein

“To get to know a country, you must have direct contact with the earth. It's futile to gaze at the world through a car window.” ― Albert Einstein

“Never lose a holy curiosity.” ― Albert Einstein

“When a man is sufficiently motivated, discipline will take care of itself.” ― Albert Einstein

“Is it not better for a man to die for a cause in which he believes, such as peace, than to suffer for a cause in which he does not believe, such as war?” ― Albert Einstein

“إني على قناعة مطلقة أنه ما من ثروة في الدنيا يمكنها أن تساعد البشرية على التقدم ولو كانت في يد أكثر الناس تفانياً . إنّ الشخصيات النظيفة والعظيمة وحدها تنتج الأفكار الراقية والأعمال النبيلة ، أما المال فإنه محرك للأنانية ويغري مالكيه بإساءة استخدامه .هل يستطيع أي إنسان أن يتخيل موسى والمسيح أو غاندي يجرون وراءهم أكياس المال؟” ― Albert Einstein

“Man usually avoids attributing cleverness to somebody else- unless it is an enemy” ― Albert Einstein

“I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.” ― Albert Einstein

“It was my good fortune to be linked with Mme. Curie through twenty years of sublime and unclouded friendship. I came to admire her human grandeur to an ever growing degree. Her strength, her purity of will, her austerity toward herself, her objectivity, her incorruptible judgement— all these were of a kind seldom found joined in a single individual... The greatest scientific deed of her life—proving the existence of radioactive elements and isolating them—owes its accomplishment not merely to bold intuition but to a devotion and tenacity in execution under the most extreme hardships imaginable, such as the history of experimental science has not often witnessed.” ― Albert Einstein

“The supreme goal of all theory is to make the irreducible basic elements as simple and as few as possible without having to surrender the adequate representation of a simple datum of experience.” ― Albert Einstein

“A man's actions are determined by necessity, external and internal.” ― Albert Einstein

“From discord, find Harmony.” ― Albert Einstein

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead and his eyes are dimmed.” ― Albert Einstein

“If you've never done anything wrong it's probably because you have never tried anything new.” ― Albert Einstein

“Light travels faster than sound, thats why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.” ― Albert Einstein

“I was very pleased with your kind letter. Until now I never dreamed of being something like a hero. But since you've given me the nomination I feel that I am one.” ― Albert Einstein

“No problem can be solved at the level of consciousness in which it was conceived.” ― Albert Einstien

“the real purpose of socialism is precisely to overcome and advance beyond the predatory phase of human development” ― Albert Einstein

“If the answer is simple, God is speaking.” ― Albert Einstein

“It is a special blessing to belong among those who can and may devote their best energies to the contemplation and exploration of objective and timeless things. How happy and grateful I am for having been granted this blessing, which bestows upon one a large measure of independence from one's personal fate and from the attitude of one's contemporaries. Yet this independence must not inure us to the awareness of the duties that constantly bind us to the past, present and future of humankind at large. Our situation on this earth seems strange. Every one of us appears here, involuntarily and uninvited, for a short stay, without knowing the why and the wherefore. In our daily lives we feel only that man is here for the sake of others, for those whom we love and for many other beings whose fate is connected with our own. I am often troubled by the thought that my life is based to such a large extent on the work of my fellow human beings, and I am aware of my great indebtedness to them. I do not believe in free will. Schopenhauer's words: 'Man can do what he wants, but he cannot will what he wills,' accompany me in all situations throughout my life and reconcile me with the actions of others, even if they are rather painful to me. This awareness of the lack of free will keeps me from taking myself and my fellow men too seriously as acting and deciding individuals, and from losing my temper. I have never coveted affluence and luxury and even despise them a good deal. My passion for social justice has often brought me into conflict with people, as has my aversion to any obligation and dependence I did not regard as absolutely necessary. [Part 2] I have a high regard for the individual and an insuperable distaste for violence and fanaticism. All these motives have made me a passionate pacifist and antimilitarist. I am against any chauvinism, even in the guise of mere patriotism. Privileges based on position and property have always seemed to me unjust and pernicious, as does any exaggerated personality cult. I am an adherent of the ideal of democracy, although I know well the weaknesses of the democratic form of government. Social equality and economic protection of the individual have always seemed to me the important communal aims of the state. Although I am a typical loner in daily life, my consciousness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice keeps me from feeling isolated. The most beautiful and deepest experience a man can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the underlying principle of religion as well as of all serious endeavour in art and science. He who never had this experience seems to me, if not dead, then at least blind. To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is a something that our minds cannot grasp, whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirectly: this is religiousness. In this sense I am religious. To me it suffices to wonder at these secrets and to attempt humbly to grasp with my mind a mere image of the lofty structure of all there is.” ― Albert Einstein

“Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them.” ― Albert Einstein

“I cannot conceive of a great scientist without this profound faith: Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” ― Albert Einstein

“In the matter of physics, the first lessons should contain nothing but what is experimental and interesting to see. A pretty experiment is in itself often more valuable than twenty formulae extracted from our minds.” ― Albert Einstein

“To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.” ― Albert Einstein

“Oh juventud nunca dejes de pensar...” ― Albert Einstein

“Let every man be respected as an individual and no man idolized.” ― Albert Einstein

“One must divide one's time between politics and equations. But our equations are much more important to me, because politics is for the present, while our equations are for eternity.” ― Albert Einstein

“Nonsense, seems to sum up everything.” ― Albert Einstein

“The most amazing thing about the world is that we understand it.” ― Albert Einstein

“If I had only known, I would have been a locksmith. ” ― Albert Einstein

“Common to all these types is the anthropomorphic character of their conception of God. In general, only individuals of exceptional endowments, and exceptionally high-minded communities, rise to any considerable extent above this level. But there is a third stage of religious experience which belongs to all of them, even though it is rarely found in a pure form: I shall call it cosmic religious feeling. It is very difficult to elucidate this feeling to anyone who is entirely without it, especially as there is no anthropomorphic conception of God corresponding to it.” ― Albert Einstein

“When I was young I found out that the big toe always ends up making a hole in a sock. So I stopped wearing socks.” ― Albert Einstein

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

“There are times when one feels liberated from one’s limits and human imperfections. At such moments, we see ourselves there, in a little corner of our little planet, our eyes fixed in wonder on the cold and yet deep beauty of that which is eternal, that which is elusive. Life and death are fused together and there is no evolution, nor destination, there is only BEING.” ― Albert Einstein

“A quiet and modest life brings more joy than a pursuit of success bound with constant unrest.” ― Albert Einstein

“My passionate interest in social justice and social responsibility has always stood in curious contrast to a marked lack of desire for direct association with men and women. I am a horse for single harness, not cut out for tandem or team work. I have never belonged wholeheartedly to country or state, to my circle of friends, or even to my own family. These ties have always been accompanied by a vague aloofness, and the wish to withdraw into myself increases with the years. Such isolation is sometimes bitter, but I do not regret being cut off from the understanding and sympathy of other men. I lose something by it, to be sure, but I am compensated for it in being rendered independent of the customs, opinions, and prejudices of others, and am not tempted to rest my peace of mind upon such shifting foundations.” ― Albert Einstein

“Todos somos muy ignorantes. Lo que ocurre es que no todos ignoramos las mismas cosas.” ― Albert Einstein

“I would not think that philosophy and reason themselves will be man's guide in the foreseeable future; however, they will remain the most beautiful sanctuary they have always been for the select few.” ― Albert Einstein

“True religion is real living; living with all one's soul, with all one's goodness and righteousness.” ― Albert Einstein

“Brief is this existence, as a visit in a strange house. The path to be pursued is poorly lit by a flickering consciousness.” ― Albert Einstein

“The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this. These subtilised interpretations are highly manifold according to their nature and have almost nothing to do with the original text. For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions.” ― Albert Einstein

“Beyond the realms of what we see, into the regions or the unexplored limited only by our imaginations.” ― Einstein

“A desk, some pads, a pencil, and a large basket -- to hold all of mu mistakes.” ― Albert Einstein

“Jesus is too colossal for the pen of phrasemongers, however artful. No man can dispose of Christianity with a bon mot” ― Albert Einstein

“Imagination is everything” ― Albert Einstein

“Politics is for the moment and equation is for eternity.” ― Albert Einstein

“Without deep reflection one knows from daily life that one exist for other people” ― Albert Einstein

“Let every man judge according to his own standards, by what he has himself read, not by what others tell him.” ― Albert Einstein

“A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.” ― Albert Einstein

“Life is just like a game, First you have to learn rules of the game, And then play it better then any one else.” ― Albert Einstein

“Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution.” ― Albert Einstein

“The idea of a personal God is quite alien to me and seems even naïve.” ― Albert Einstein

“Es gibt zwei Arten sein Leben zu leben: entweder so, als wäre nichts ein Wunder, oder so, als wäre alles eines. Ich glaube an Letzteres.” ― Albert Einstein

“A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty - it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man.” ― Albert Einstein

“It is the duty of every citizen according to his best capacities to give validity to his convictions in political affairs.” ― Albert Einstein

“The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” ― Albert Einstein

“Hope that justice will be done to those brave men who stood up for their convictions.” ― Albert Einstein

“Subtle is the Lord. Malicious, He is not.” ― Albert Einstein

“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.” ― Albert Einstein

“A new idea comes suddenly and in a rather intuitive way, but intuition is nothing but the outcome of earlier intellectual experience.” ― Albert Einstein

“Out yonder there is this huge world, which exists independently of us human beings and which stands before us like a great, eternal riddle, at least partially accessible to our inspection and thinking” ― Albert Einstein

“Tình cảnh của những đứa con trái đất chúng ta mới kỳ lạ làm sao! Mỗi chúng ta đến đây như một chuyến viếng thăm ngắn ngủi. Ta không biết để làm gì, nhưng đôi khi ta tin rằng ta cảm nhận được điều đó. Song, nhìn từ cuộc sống thường nhật mà không đi sâu hơn, ta biết rằng: ta đến đây vì người khác - trước hết vì những người mà hạnh phúc của riêng ta phụ thuộc hoàn toàn vào nụ cười và sự yên ấm của họ, kế đến là vì bao người không quen mà số phận của họ nối với ta bằng sợi dây của lòng cảm thông.” ― Albert Einstein

“The laws of gravity cannot be held responcible for people falling in love.” ― Albert Einstein

“You can't blame gravity for falling in love” ― Albert Einstein

“The strongest force in the universe is Compound Interest.” ― Albert Einstein

“Life is a Mystery, not a problem waiting to be solved.” ― Albert Einstein

“Equations are more important to me, because politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity.” ― Albert Einstein

“The more cruel the wrong that men commit against an individual or a people, the deeper their hatred and contempt for their victim. Conceit and false pride on the part of a nation prevent the rise of remorse for its crime.” ― Albert Einstein

“During the youthful period of mankind's spiritual evolution human fantasy created gods in man's own image, who, by the operations of their will were supposed to determine, or at any rate to influence, the phenomenal world. Man sought to alter the disposition of these gods in his own favor by means of magic and prayer. The idea of God in the religions taught at present is a sublimation of that old concept of the gods. Its anthropomorphic character is shown, for instance, by the fact that men appeal to the Divine Being in prayers and plead for the fulfillment of their wishes. Nobody, certainly, will deny that the idea of the existence of an omnipotent, just, and omnibeneficent personal God is able to accord man solace, help, and guidance; also, by virtue of its simplicity it is accessible to the most undeveloped mind. But, on the other hand, there are decisive weaknesses attached to this idea in itself, which have been painfully felt since the beginning of history. That is, if this being is omnipotent, then every occurrence, including every human action, every human thought, and every human feeling and aspiration is also His work; how is it possible to think of holding men responsible for their deeds and thoughts before such an almighty Being? In giving out punishment and rewards He would to a certain extent be passing judgment on Himself. How can this be combined with the goodness and righteousness ascribed to Him? (Albert Einstein, Science, Philosophy, and Religion, A 1934 Symposium published by the Conference on Science, Philosophy and Religion in Their Relation to the Democratic Way of Life, Inc., New York, 1941; from Einstein's Out of My Later Years, Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood Press, 1970, pp. 26-27.)” ― Albert Einstein

“Time is relative; its only worth depends upon what we do as it is passing.” ― Albert Einstein

“An autocratic system of coercion, in my opinion soon degenerates. For force always attract men of low morality.” ― Albert Einstein

“Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it.” ― Albert Einstein

“In scientific thinking are always present elements of poetry. Science and music requires a thought homogeneous.” ― Albert Einstein

“It is only men who are free, who create the inventions and intellectual works which to us moderns make life worth while.” ― Albert Einstein

“Il est plus facile de désintégrer un atome qu'un préjugé” ― Albert Einstein

“Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act, and in that action are the seeds of new knowledge.” ― Albert Einstein

“Why 100? If I were wrong, one would have been enough. [In response to the book "Hundred Authors Against Einstein"]” ― Albert Einstein

“In the midst of every crisis, lies great opportunity.” ― Albert Einstein

“The theory must not contradict empirical facts,” ― Albert Einstein

“The only difference between genius and insanity is that genius has its limits.” ― Albert Einstein

“How many people are trapped in their everyday habits: part numb, part frightened, part indifferent? To have a better life we must keep choosing how we're living.” ― Albert Einstein

“Memory is deceptive because it is colored by today's events” ― Albert Einstein

“Racism is a disease of white people” ― Albert Einstein

“A large part of our attitude toward things is conditioned by opinions and emotions which we unconsciously absorb as children from our environment. In other words, it is tradition—besides inherited aptitudes and qualities—which makes us what we are. We but rarely reflect how relatively small as compared with the powerfu...

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.” ― Albert Einstein

“Tell me and I'll forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I'll learn.” ― Albert Einstein

“Condemnation before investigation, is the highest form of ignorance.” ― Albert Einstein

“Although I have been prevented by outward circumstances from observing a strictly vegetarian diet, I have long been an adherent to the cause in principle. Besides agreeing with the aims of vegetarianism for aesthetic and moral reasons, it is my view that a vegetarian manner of living by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind.” ― Albert Einstein

“When Albert Einstein was asked what he would really like to know about the Universe he replied,'is it friendly?” ― Albert Einstein

“In my view, it is the most important function of art and science to awaken this religious feeling and keep it alive in those who are receptive to it.” ― Albert Einstein

“Conviction is a good motive, but a bad judge.” ― Albert Einstein

“I was barked at by numerous dogs who are earning their food guarding ignorance and superstition for the benefit of those who profit from it. Then there are the fanatical atheists whose intolerance is of the same kind as the intolerance of the religious fanatics and comes from the same source. They are like slaves who are still feeling the weight of their chains which they have thrown off after hard struggle. They are creatures who—in their grudge against the traditional "opium of the people"—cannot bear the music of the spheres. The Wonder of nature does not become smaller because one cannot measure it by the standards of human morals and human aims.” ― Albert Einstein

“Scientists investigate that which already is; engineers create that which has never been.” ― Albert Einstein

“We are here for the sake of others” ― Albert Einstein

“The world is in greater peril from those who tolerate or encourage evil than from those who actually commit it.” ― Albert Einstein

“No man or Genie on earth had "created" anything, we merely assembled God's Atoms, by learning it's properties, with his aid, so if anyone said that we had "invented" anything - he had Invented a lie; an unwise man.... thinks we have created an atom.” ― Albert Einstein

“Did you know: The only source of knowledge is experience” ― Albert Einstein

“But science can only be created by those who are thoroughly imbued with the aspiration toward truth and understanding. This source of feeling, however, springs from the sphere of religion. To this there also belongs the faith in the possibility that the regulations valid for the world of existence are rational, that is, comprehensible to reason. I cannot conceive of a genuine scientist without that profound faith. The situation may be expressed by an image: science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” ― Albert Einstein

“The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been kindness, beauty, and truth." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)” ― Albert Einstein

“The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks.” ― Albert Einstein

“Have the courage to take your own thoughts seriously, for they will shape you.” ― Albert Einstein

“Human knowledge and skills alone cannot lead humanity to a happy and dignified life.” ― Albert Einstein

“Everything that the human race has done and thought is concerned with the satisfaction of deeply felt needs and the assuagement of pain. One has to keep this constantly in mind if one wishes to understand spiritual movements and their development. Feeling and longing are the motive force behind all human endeavor and human creation, in however exalted a guise the latter may present themselves to us.” ― Albert Einstein

“The field is the sole governing agency of the particle” ― Albert Einstein

“Scientific research is based on the idea that everything that takes place is determined by laws of nature, and therefore this holds for the action of people. For this reason, a research scientist will hardly be inclined to believe that events could be influenced by a prayer, i.e. by a wish addressed to a Supernatural Being. - Albert Einstein, 1936, responding to a child who wrote and asked if scientists pray; quoted in: Albert Einstein: The Human Side, edited by Helen Dukas & Banesh Hoffmann” ― Albert Einstein

“Order is needed by the ignorant but it takes a genius to master chaos.” ― Albert Einstein

“إنّ الانسان الذي يعتبر حياته وحياة البشر بلا معنى ليس انسانا بائساً وحسب، بل إنّه بالكاد يستحق الحياة .” ― Albert Einstein

“Nobody knows how the stand of our knowledge about the atom would be without him. Personally, Bohr is one of the amiable colleagues I have met. He utters his opinions like one perpetually groping and never like one who believes himself to be in possession of the truth.” ― Albert Einstein

“I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music.” ― Albert Einstein

“We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.” ― Albert Einstein

“You make experiments and I make theories. Do you know the difference? A theory is something nobody believes, except the person who made it. An experiment is something everybody believes, except the person who made it. {Remark to scientist Herman Francis Mark}” ― Albert Einstein

“You don't have to understand the world. You just have to find your own way around in it.” ― Albert Einstein

“That is the way to learn the most; when you are doing something with such enjoyment that you don’t notice that the time passes. I am sometimes so wrapped up in my work that I forget about the noon meal.” ― Albert Einstein

“In two weeks the sheeplike masses of any country can be worked up by the newspapers into such a state of excited fury that men are prepared to put on uniforms and kill and be killed, for the sake of the sordid ends of a few interested parties.” ― Albert Einstein

“I believe that better times are coming.” ― Albert Einstein

“How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.” ― Albert Einstein

“The most aggravating thing about the younger generation is that I no longer belong to it.” ― Albert Einstein

“Concern for man himself and his fate must always constitute the chief objective of all technological endeavors...in order that the creations of our mind shall be a blessing and not a curse to mankind. Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and equations.” ― Albert Einstein

“Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true. The consequence was a positively fanatic orgy of freethinking coupled with the impression that youth is intentionally being deceived by the state through lies; it was a crushing impression. Mistrust of every kind of authority grew out of this experience, a skeptical attitude toward the convictions that were alive in any specific social environment - an attitude that has never again left me. - Albert Einstein

“Nothing truly valuable can be achieved except by the unselfish cooperation of many individuals.” ― Albert Einstein

“I have little patience with scientists who take a board of wood, look for its thinnest part, and drill a great number of holes where drilling is easy.” ― Albert Einstein

“A conviction akin to religious feeling of the rationality or intelligibility of the world lies behind all scientific work of a high order.” ― Albert Einstein

“There is far too great a disproportion between what one is and what others think one is, or at least what they say they think one is.” ― Albert Einstein

“If it isn't urgent, worry about it later” ― Albert Einstein

“Of all the communities available to us, there is not one I would want to devote myself to except for the society of the true seekers, which has very few living members at any one time.” ― Albert Einstein

“Tanda kecerdasan sejati bukanlah pengetahuan tapi imajinasi.” ― Albert Einstein
