    he secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.
    --Albert Einstein

    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.
    --Albert Einstein

    People like you and I, though mortal of course like everyone else, do not grow old no matter how long we live...[We] never cease to stand like curious children before the great mystery into which we were born.
    --Albert Einstein in a letter to Otto Juliusburger

    The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.
    --Albert Einstein

    It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity
    --Albert Einstein (03/14/1879-1955)

    Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.

    --Albert Einstein

    I think and think for months and years, ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right.
    --Albert Einstein

    I cannot conceive of a personal God who would directly influence the actions of individuals, or would directly sit in judgment on creatures of his own creation. I cannot do this in spite of the fact that mechanistic causality has, to a certain extent, been placed in doubt by modern science. [He was speaking of Quantum Mechanics and the breaking down of determinism.] My religiosity consists in a humble admiratation of the infinitely superior spirit that reveals itself in the little that we, with our weak and transitory understanding, can comprehend of reality. Morality is of the highest importance -- but for us, not for God
    --Albert Einstein The Human Side, 1954

    Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty
    --Albert Einstein (03/14/1879-1955)

    The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.

    The search for truth is more precious than its possession
    --Albert Einstein (03/14/1879-1955)

    Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.
    --Albert Einstein (03/14/1879-1955)

    The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.
    --Albert Einstein

    I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.

    --Albert Einstein

    Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
    --Albert Einstein

    Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the life-long attempt to acquire it.
    --Albert Einstein

    Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.
    --Albert Einstein

    Isn't it strange that I who have written only unpopular books should be such a popular fellow?

    --Albert Einstein

    --Albert Einstein

    He who joyfully marches in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would suffice.
    --Albert Einstein

    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
    --Albert Einstein

    Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius --- and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
    --Albert Einstein

    Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler
    --Albert Einstein

    Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning.
    --Albert Einstein

    I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.
    --Albert Einstein

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

    Perfection of means and confusion of ends seem to characterize our age.
    --Albert Einstein

    I have deep faith that the principle of the universe will be beautiful and simple.
    --Albert Einstein

    Truth is what stands the test of experience.
    --Albert Einstein

    The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.
    --Albert Einstein

    Quantum mechanics is very impressive. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory yields a lot, but it hardly brings us any closer to the secret of the Old One. In any case I am convinced that He doesn't play dice.
    --Albert Einstein

    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocre minds. The latter cannot understand it when a [person] does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses their intelligence.
    --Albert Einstein

    Subtle is the Lord, but malicious He is not.
    --Albert Einstein

    There remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion

    Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune intoned in the distance by an invisible player
    --Albert Einstein

    Do you believe in immortality? No, and one life is enough for me
    --Albert Einstein

    How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn;for what purpose we know not, though sometimes sense it. But we know from daily life that we exist for other people first of all for whose smiles and well-being our own happiness depends.
    --Albert Einstein

    Scientists were rated as great heretics by the church, but they were truly religious men because of their faith in the orderliness of the universe.
    --Albert Einstein

    I do not believe that the Good Lord plays dice
    --Albert Einstein

    When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence: Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter.

    --Albert Einstein

    Politics is more difficult than physics
    --Albert Einstein

    I hate crowds and making speeches. I hate facing cameras and having to answer to a crossfire of questions. Why popular fancy should seize upon me, a scientist, dealing in abstract things and happy if left alone, is a manifestation of mass psychology that is beyond me.
    --Albert Einstein

    I am neither especially clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious.
    --Albert Einstein

    --Albert Einstein

    A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.

    --Albert Einstein

    I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.
    --Albert Einstein

    A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
    --Albert Einstein

    A human being is part of the whole called by us universe , a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty... We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.
    --Albert Einstein

    We have to do the best we can. This is our sacred human responsibility.
    --Albert Einstein

    Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.
    --Albert Einstein

    We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books . It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see a universe marvelously arranges and obeying certain laws, but only dimly understand these laws. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that moves the constellations.
    --Albert Einstein

    Where there is love there is no question
    --Albert Einstein

    The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.
    --Albert Einstein

    When you sit with a nice girl for two hours, you think it's only a minute. But when you sit on a hot stove for a minute, you think it's two hours. That's relativity.
    --Albert Einstein

    The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them.
    --Albert Einstein

    Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who read too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
    --Albert Einstein

    Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.
    --Albert Einstein

    On the big Bang theory: "For every one billion particles of antimatter there were one billion and one particles of matter. And when the mutual annihilation was complete, one billionth remained - and that's our present universe."
    --Albert Einstein

    MacMillan has this particular quote simply as "God doesn't play dice." and notes that it is often quoted as doesn't play dice with the universe"
    --Albert Einstein

    Imagination is more important than knowledge.
    --Albert Einstein

    He who finds though that lets us penetrate even a little deeper into the eternal mystery of nature has been granted great grace. He who, in addition, experiences the recognition, sympathy, and help of the best minds of his times, had been given almost more happiness than one man can bear.
    --Albert Einstein

    Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.

    I love this one:

    The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.
    --Albert Einstein

    And you're not pathetic for not being able to go without an internet connection, if just for the sole reason that I don't want to think of myself as pathetic for that reason as well ;) Plus for you, being Klingon and all, there must be some attraction to this forum with all the bickering and potentials for warfar ;)
