ALBERT EINSTEIN

  • It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
  • To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.
  • the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.
  • Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited.
  • No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.
  • He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
  • I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.
  • A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be. Information is not knowledge.
  • It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.
  • Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
  • Keep on sowing your seed, for you never know which will grow – perhaps it all will.
  • We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
  • Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.
  • I think and think for months and years. Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right.
  • People love chopping wood. In this activity one immediately sees results.
  • Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.
  • Small is the number of people who see with their eyes and think with their minds.
  • The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
  • Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.
  • Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
  • When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity.
  • Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone.
  • The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
  • Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
  • If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?
  • Black holes are where God divided by zero.
  • You never fail until you stop trying.
  • In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity
  • Creativity is intelligence having fun.
  • What is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right.
  • Out of clutter, find simplicity.
