Quotes from Albert Einstein

Here is a small collection of some of my favorite Albert Einstein quotes. Most of us know Einstein as one of the most brilliant minds and scientists. However, he had a unique grasp on philosophy as well. I enjoy reading his writings, as his mind certainly worked in a very unique way.

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

  2. "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

  3. ""A person starts to live when he can live outside himself."

  4. "Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character."

  5. "I never think of the future. It comes soon enough."

  6. "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."

  7. "Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from weak minds."

  8. "The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources."

  9. "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

  10. "Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school."

  11. "The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."

  12. "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."
