Quotes for
the Journey:

Albert Einstein



I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone,
best both for the body and the mind. 

   

People's true worth can be measured by considering the degree and the manner in which they have succeeded in liberating themselves from their egos.

   

Human beings are a part of the whole, called by us "the universe," a part limited in time and space.  We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of our consciousness.  This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our own personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.  Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

   
Successful people are those who receives a great deal from their fellow people, usually incomparably more than corresponds to their service to them.  The value of people, however, should be seen in what they give, and not in what they are able to receive.
   

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.  It is the source of all true art and science.  Those to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead:  their eyes are closed.

   
A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other people, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.
    
Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools.

I think and think for months, for years.  Ninety-nine times the conclusion is false.  The hundredth time I am right.
    
The deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.
   
Concern for humans themselves and their fate must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavors, concern for the great unsolved problems of the organization of labor and the distribution of goods--in order that the creations of our mind shall be a blessing and not a curse to humankind.  Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and equations.
   
The important thing is not to stop questioning.  Curiosity has its own reason for existing.  One cannot help but be in awe when one 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.
  
Only a life lived for others is a life worth while.
  
Everything should be made as simple as possible. . . but not simpler.
  

   
Try not to become a person of success, but rather a person of value.
   
The mind can proceed only so far upon what it knows and can prove.  There comes a point where the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge, but can never prove how it got there.  All great discoveries have involved such a leap.
  
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
  
Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
   
Look deep into nature and you will find the answer to everything.
   
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
   
When I examine myself and my methods of thought I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing knowledge.
