Albert Einstein quotes (showing 211-240 of 1,061)

“The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it Intuition or what you will, the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why.”
Albert Einstein
“I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.”
Albert Einstein, On Cosmic Religion and Other Opinions and Aphorisms
“Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act.”
Albert Einstein
“Creating a new theory is not like destroying an old barn and erecting a skyscraper in its place. It is rather like climbing a mountain, gaining new and wider views, discovering unexpected connections between our starting points and its rich environment. But the point from which we started out still exists and can be seen, although it appears smaller and forms a tiny part of our broad view gained by the mastery of the obstacles on our adventurous way up.”
Albert Einstein
“Do not grow old, no matter how long you live. Never cease to stand like curious children before the Great Mystery into which we were born.”
Albert Einstein
“We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality. ”
Albert Einstein
“We are all life trying to live, among other life trying to live.”
Albert Einstein
“One of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.”
Albert Einstein
“I do not at all believe in human freedom in the philosophical sense... Schopenhauer’s saying, ‘A man can do what he wants, but not will what he wants,’ has been a very real inspiration to me since my youth; it has been a continual consolation in the face of life’s hardships, my own and others’, and an unfailing wellspring of tolerance. This realization mercifully mitigates the easily paralyzing sense of responsibility and prevents us from taking ourselves and other people too seriously; it is conducive to a view of life which, in part, gives humour its due.”
Albert Einstein, The World as I See It
“Adversity introduces a man to himself.”
Albert Einstein
“Success = 1 part work + 1 part play + 1 part keep your mouth shut”
Albert Einstein, Ideas and Opinions
“Failing isn't bad when you learn what not to do.”
Albert Einstein
“There is nothing known as "Perfect". Its only those imperfections which we choose not to see!!”
Albert Einstein
“The formulation of the problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill.”
Albert Einstein
“A perfection of means, and confusion of aims, seems to be our main problem.”
Albert Einstein
“I prefer to make up my own quotes and attribute them to very smart people, so that I can use them to win arguments”
Albert Einstein
“As our circle of knowledge expands, so does the circumference of darkness surrounding it.”
Albert Einstein
“The most important human endeavor is the striving for morality in our actions. Our inner balance and even our very existence depend on it. Only morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to life. ”
Albert Einstein
“Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others, it is the only means.”
Albert Einstein
“If I could do it all again, I'd be a plumber.”
Albert Einstein
“Problems cannot be solved with the same mind set that created them.”
Albert Einstein
“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”
Albert Einstein
“It is every man's obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it.”
Albert Einstein, The World as I See It
“Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of relativity I do not understand it myself any more.”
Albert Einstein
“Earth is the insane asylum of the universe.”
Albert Einstein
“Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.”
Albert Einstein
“We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life. All that we need to make us happy is something to be enthusiastic about.”
Albert Einstein
“The most important question a person can ask is, "Is the Universe a friendly place?”
Albert Einstein
“Be a loner. That gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Have holy curiosity. Make your life worth living.”
Albert Einstein
“The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.”
Albert Einstein
