Perhaps the most brilliant, German brain to have ever existed in the history of humanity, taught us much more than just science and mathematics. Einstein’s words of great intellect and immense wisdom, touch upon key aspects of life; Humanity, Humility, Kindness, Fame, Friendship.

“Religion and science go together. As I’ve said before, science without religion is lame and religion without science is blind. They are interdependent and have a common goal — the search for truth.” — (from a 1948 interview)

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science”

“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.”

“I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.” — (from “Self-Portrait,” 1936)

My Personal Fav:

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