  A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space.

  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
  

  Scientists investigate that which already is; Engineers create that which has never been.  
 -  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
  

  Only a life lived for others is worth living  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.

  Intellectuals solve problems; geniuses prevent them.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  After a certain high level of technical skill is achieved, science and art tend to coalesce in esthetics, plasticity, and form. The greatest scientists are always artists as well.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  A man's value to the community primarily depends on how far his feelings, thoughts, and actions are directed towards promoting the good of his fellows  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  It is every man's obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

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

  The truth of a theory is in your mind, not in your eyes.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  If the facts dont fit the theory, change the facts.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  It is the theory that decides what we can observe.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Nothing happens until something moves.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.  
 -  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.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

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

  It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living, by its purely physical effect on the human temperament, would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  An empty stomach is not a good political advisor.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.

  Any fool can know. The point is to understand.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.  
 -  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
  

  Love is a better master than duty.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  When you trip over love, it is easy to get up. But when you fall in love, it is impossible to stand again.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The hardest thing in the world to understand is income tax.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.

  Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities.

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

  The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.

  Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.

  You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.  
 -  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
  

  Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.

 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of truth.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there's no risk of accident for someone who's dead.  
 -  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
  

  God does not play dice with the universe.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

  When the solution is simple, God is answering.

  Three great forces rule the world: stupidity, fear and greed.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The strange thing about growing old is that the intimate identification with the here and now is slowly lost; one feels transposed into infinity, more or less alone, no longer in hope or fear, only observing.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Much reading after a certain age diverts the mind from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking, just as the man who spends too much time in the theaters is apt to be content with living vicariously instead of living his own life.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  A person who has never made a mistake never tried anything new.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

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

  I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  What a sad era when it is easier to smash an atom than a prejudice.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Small is the number of people who see with their eyes and think with their minds.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  My political ideal is democracy. Let every man be respected as an individual and no man idolized.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of truth.

  The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

  If most of us are ashamed of shabby clothes and shoddy furniture, let us be more ashamed of shabby ideas and shoddy philosophies.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgement in all human affairs.

  If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Genius is 1% talent and 99% percent hard work.

  I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.

  Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Love is a better teacher than duty.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Hunger, love, pain, fear are some of those inner forces which rule the individual's instinct for self preservation.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Education is only a ladder to gather fruit from the tree of knowledge, not the fruit itself  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I am thankful to all those who said no. It's because of them I did it myself .

  Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

  Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.

  Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Isn't it strange that I who have written only unpopular books should be such a popular fellow?  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he does not really need a college. He can learn them from books. The value of an education is a liberal arts college is not learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The secret to creativity is the ability to hide your sources.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  But the creative principle resides in mathematics. In a certain sense, therefore, I hold true that pure thought can grasp reality, as the ancients dreamed.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Bureaucracy is the death of all sound work.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us, our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there's no risk of accident for someone who's dead.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Without health life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering - an image of death.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The process of scientific discovery is, in effect, a continual flight from wonder.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The environment is everything that isn't me.  
 -  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
  

  One strength of the communist system of the East is that it has some of the character of a religion and inspires the emotions of a religion.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I never think of the future - it comes soon enough.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

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

  Concern for man and his fate must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavors. Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and equations.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  To the Master's honor all must turn, each in its track, without a sound, forever tracing Newton's ground.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.  
 -  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
  

  Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

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

  The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Setting an example is not the main means of influencing another, it is the only means.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The difference between what the most and the least learned people know is inexpressibly trivial in relation to that which is unknown.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  A person starts to live when he can live outside himself.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  cience is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

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

  Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The only life worth living is a life you are truly and honestly passionate about.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I believe you should live each day as if it is your last, which is why I don't have any clean laundry, because, come on, who wants to wash clothes on the last day of their life?  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Only a life lived for others is worth living.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.  
 -  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
  

  But the creative principle resides in mathematics. In a certain sense, therefore, I hold true that pure thought can grasp reality, as the ancients dreamed.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Mathematics are well and good but nature keeps dragging us around by the nose.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I don't believe in mathematics.  
 -  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
  

  But there is another reason for the high repute of mathematics: it is mathematics that offers the exact natural sciences a certain measure of security which, without mathematics, they could not attain.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Memory is deceptive because it is colored by today's events.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Memory is deceptive because it is colored by today's events.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  It is nothing short of a miracle that modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  You ask me if I keep a notebook to record my great ideas. I've only ever had one.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The attempt to combine wisdom and power has only rarely been successful and then only for a short while.  
 -  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
  

  The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.  
 -  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
  

  A perfection of means, and confusion of aims, seems to be our main problem.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Perfection of means and confusion of ends seem to characterize our age.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Confusion of goals and perfection of means seems, in my opinion, to characterize our age.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I lived in solitude in the country and noticed how the monotony of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.  
 -  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
  

  It is not that I'm so smart. But I stay with the questions much longer.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

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

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

  Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

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

  Without deep reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation and is but a reflection of human frailty.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.

  One strength of the communist system of the East is that it has some of the character of a religion and inspires the emotions of a religion.

  Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others...for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  It's man's sympathy, with all Gods creatures, that makes him truly a man.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life. The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  To me the worst thing seems to be a school principally to work with methods of fear, force and artificial authority. Such treatment destroys the sound sentiments, the sincerity and the self-confidence of pupils and produces a subservient subject.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Beauty is but skin deep, ugly lies the bone; Beauty dies and fades away, but ugly holds its own.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking...the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  It is only to the individual that a soul is given.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  True religion is real living; living with all one's soul, with all one's goodness and righteousness.  
 -  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
  

  Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.  
 -  Albert Einstein
  

  My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.  
 -  Albert Einstein
