To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms—this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.” ― Albert Einstein

“Your question is the most difficult in the world. It is not a question I can answer simply with yes or no. I am not an Atheist. I do not know if I can define myself as a Pantheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. May I not reply with a parable? The human mind, no matter how highly trained, cannot grasp the universe. 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. I am fascinated by Spinoza's Pantheism. I admire even more his contributions to modern thought. Spinoza is the greatest of modern philosophers, because he is the first philosopher who deals with the soul and the body as one, not as two separate things.” ― Albert Einstein

“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.” ― Albert Einstein

“Do not grow old, no matter how long you live. Never cease to stand like curious children before the Great Mystery into which we were born.” ― Albert Einstein

“Always do what’s right; this will gratify some and astonish the rest”

“Always do what's right; this will gratify some and astonish the rest” ― Albert Einstein

“Older men start wars, but younger men fight them. ” ― Albert Einstein

“It occurred to me by intuition, and music was the driving force behind that intuition. My discovery was the result of musical perception.” ― Albert Einstein

“Adversity introduces a man to himself.” ― Albert Einstein

“Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.” ― Albert Einstein

“The bigotry of the nonbeliever is for me nearly as funny as the bigotry of the believer.” ― Albert Einstein

“Truth is what stands the test of experience. ” ― Albert Einstein

“Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act.” ― Albert Einstein

“What I see in Nature is a magnificent structure that we can comprehend only very imperfectly, and that must fill a thinking person with a feeling of humility. This is a genuinely religious feeling that has nothing to do with mysticism.” ― Albert Einstein

“I do not at all believe in human freedom in the philosophical sense... Schopenhauer’s saying, ‘A man can do what he wants, but not will what he wants,’ has been a very real inspiration to me since my youth; it has been a continual consolation in the face of life’s hardships, my own and others’, and an unfailing wellspring of tolerance. This realization mercifully mitigates the easily paralyzing sense of responsibility and prevents us from taking ourselves and other people too seriously; it is conducive to a view of life which, in part, gives humour its due.” ― Albert Einstein

“Pure mathematics is in its way the poetry of logical ideas.”

“Pure mathematics is in its way the poetry of logical ideas.” ― Albert Einstein

“It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.” ― Albert Einstein

“Problems cannot be solved with the same mind set that created them.” ― Albert Einstein

“The formulation of the problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill.” ― Albert Einstein

“One of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.” ― Albert Einstein

“The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it Intuition or what you will, the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why.” ― Albert Einstein

“On the occasion of Mahatma Gandhi's 70th birthday. "Generations to come, it may well be, will scarce believe that such a man as this one ever in flesh and blood walked upon this Earth.” ― Albert Einstein

“Creating a new theory is not like destroying an old barn and erecting a skyscraper in its place. It is rather like climbing a mountain, gaining new and wider views, discovering unexpected connections between our starting points and its rich environment. But the point from which we started out still exists and can be seen, although it appears smaller and forms a tiny part of our broad view gained by the mastery of the obstacles on our adventurous way up.” ― Albert Einstein

“Weak people revenge. Strong people forgive. Intelligent people ignore.” ― Albert Einstein

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

“Earth is the insane asylum of the universe.” ― 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 other men —above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, 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 and am still receiving.” ― Albert Einstein

“Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others, it is the only means.” ― Albert Einstein

“There is nothing known as "Perfect". Its only those imperfections which we choose not to see!!” ― Albert Einstein

“We are all life trying to live, among other life trying to live.” ― 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

“It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.” ― Albert Einstein

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

“Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth. (said of Mahatma Gandhi)” ― Albert Einstein

“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogmas and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description.” ― Albert Einstein

“We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life. All that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about.” ― Albert Einstein

“It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.” ― Albert Einstein

“If I could do it all again, I'd be a plumber.” ― Albert Einstein

“The most important question a person can ask is, "Is the Universe a friendly place?” ― Albert Einstein

“I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me.” ― Albert Einstein

“The man with the greatest soul will always face the greatest war with the low minded person.” ― Albert Einstein

“A man's ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; 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

“Intelligent life on other planets? I'm not even sure there is on earth!” ― Albert Einstein.

“Curiosity is more important than knowledge.” ― Albert Einstein

“I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene….No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus.” ― Albert Einstein

“The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the Prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced” ― 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

“The definition of genius is taking the complex and making it simple.” ― Albert Einstein

“La vie c’est comme la bicyclette : quand on arrête de pédaler on tombe.” ― Albert Einstein

“Creativity is the residue of time wasted.”

“Creativity is the residue of time wasted.” ― Albert Einstein

“Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.” ― Albert Einstein

“In order to be an immaculate member of a flock of sheep, one must above all, be a sheep.” ― Albert Einstein

“The fanatical atheists 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 traditional religion as the "opium of the masses"—cannot hear the music of the spheres.” ― Albert Einstein

“Many of the things you can count, don't count. Many of the things you can't count, really count.” ― Albert Einstein

“Why is it that no one understands me and everybody likes me” ― Albert Einstein

“I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves -- this critical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty. The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. Without the sense of kinship with men of like mind, without the occupation with the objective world, the eternally unattainable in the field of art and scientific endeavors, life would have seemed empty to me. The trite objects of human efforts -- possessions, outward success, luxury -- have always seemed to me contemptible.” ― Albert Einstein

“But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people--first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies we are bound by the ties of sympathy.” ― Albert Einstein

“Honestly, I cannot understand what people mean when they talk about the freedom of the human will. I have a feeling, for instance, that I will something or other; but what relation this has with freedom I cannot understand at all. I feel that I will to light my pipe and I do it; but how can I connect this up with the idea of freedom? What is behind the act of willing to light the pipe? Another act of willing? Schopenhauer once said: Der Mensch kann was er will; er kann aber nicht wollen was er will (Man can do what he will but he cannot will what he wills).” ― Albert Einstein

“be a voice not an echo” ― Albert Einstein
