Albert Einstein's quotes
German-born theoretical physicist; originator of the theory of relativity
"If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?"
"In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity."
"Information is not knowledge."
"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."
"It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."
War & Peace
"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."
"It was the experience of mystery -- even if mixed with fear -- that engendered religion."
"Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler."
"No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong."
"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted."
"Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion."
"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."
"Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT'S relativity."
"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."
"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits."
"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 impenatrable 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 sent iment. In this sense, and in this sense alone, I rank myself amoung profoundly religious men."
"The grand aim of all science is to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms."
"The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax."
"The laws of gravity cannot be held responsible for people falling in love."
