Albert Einstein's quotes
German-born theoretical physicist; originator of the theory of relativity
"How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?"
"How I wish that somewhere there existed an island for those who are wise and of goodwill! In such a place even I would be an ardent patriot."
"Heroism at command, senseless brutality, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action!"
War & Peace

"God is clever, but not dishonest."
"God does not play dice with the universe."
"Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as [Gandhi] ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth."
"Every day, man is making bigger and better fool-proof things, and every day, nature is making bigger and better fools. So far, I think nature is winning."
"Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen."
"But could not our situation be compared to one of a menacing epidemic? People are unable to view this situation in its true light, for their eyes are blinded by passion. General fear and anxiety create hatred and aggressiveness. The adaptation to warlike aims and activities has corrupted the mentality of man; as a result, intelligent, objective and humane thinking has hardly any effect and is even suspected and persecuted as unpatriotic."
War & Peace
"Before God we are equally wise and equally foolish."
"As the circle of light increases, so does the circumference of darkness around it."
"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."
"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."
"Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction."
"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."
