  • Quotes from Albert Einstein

    No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.Albert Einstein

    A person starts to live when he can live outside himself." Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." I never think of the future. It comes soon enough." Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing." Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind." Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen." The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education." As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality." "The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there's no risk of accident for someone who's dead." Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism -- how passionately I hate them!" Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despiceable an ignoreable war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder"If the facts don't fit the theory, change the factsYou cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for warThe world is a dangerous place. Not because of those who do terrible things. But because of those who let them do it." "Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts." 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 opinionsPeace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding

    If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.--Albert Einstein

  • I have never belonged wholeheartedly to country or State, to my circle of friends or even to my own family...Such isolation is sometimes bitter, but I do not regret being cut off from the understandingand sympathy of other men. I lose something by it,to be sure, but I am compensated for it in being rendered independent of the customs,opinions and prejudices of others, and am not tempted to rest my peace of mind upon such shifting foundations.--Albert Einstein
