Albert Einstein Quotations

Below are my favorite Albert Einstein quotations:
We often rant on a lot of things. One thing I keep in mind is there is someone out there having a more difficult time.

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

None that I know of. People these days are highly opinionated but not highly expressive.

Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions.

Oh definitely. The power the world has would not even leave anything after World War III.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

Everything will be ok. I have stopped thinking of negative things that might happen. They use my energy and do no good. Although I prepare for a lot of things.

I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.

Truth comes a long, long way. No matter what we do and how much flowery words we put — It still hurts!

If you are out to describe the truth, leave elegance to the tailor.

hmmm…. Look this up
Imagination is more important than knowledge…
This is not likely to happen. Probably on a different plane wherein the government super freaks have invented a device that would suppress our way of thinking.

Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.

How much of the economy would suffer if we are to evolve into a vegetarian diet?

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

What constitutes stupidity? Our own feeble minded perception?

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.

Knowledge is power. But power is nothing if not put into good use. ACT now!

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.

The important thing is not to stop questioning.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.

Anything on this planet can be studied. The only question is how much time?

The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is at all comprehensible.

Always find the root cause of things that happen. Everything has a reason. Likewise everything has an origin.

The release of atomic energy has not created a new problem. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one.

Hahahaa, this is right on target. Information is everywhere. The right source you use will make the difference.

The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.

There are so many people who were officially given power. One thing they forget is that power came from the individual people.

To punish me for my contempt for authority, fate made me an authority myself.

The bucks rule the world. It dictates what we do and what we strive for. The question is — Are you a slave to the green bucks?

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.

One thing I learned — the truth will always come out sometime in the future.

Truth is what stands the test of experience.

How could one consider himself successful if he does not have the value to go with it?

Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value.

The heart is at the center of our body. Why do you think it was placed there in the first place?

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

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.

The latter is the hardest to conquer.

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.

Simplify, Clarify and Economize… I got this from the million dollar movie.

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not one bit simpler.

If you are in a job that does not even ask for different results — LEAVE.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Oh boy. I saw my pay slip and much pain were brought about my tax contribution.

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

Problems are easier to create and multiply that by 20x or more then you have your solution.

The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.

You cannot really shut up if you want to go up the corporate ladder. ANNOUNCE every positive thing you do.

If A is success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.

Part of being great is to be able to choose your battles well.

Great spirits have always encountered opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.

Every time one of my team members of co-workers rant about their work; I quickly remind them how blessed we were not to lie on our belly’s waiting for bombs to drop from the sky in Iraq.

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.
