The Brilliance of Albert Einstein

We all know Albert Einstein as the genius theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity. His work has also been hugely influential in the philosophy of science, and he received the Nobel Prize for Physics for his valuable contributions. Less well known perhaps is Einstein’s inspirational perspective on a life well-lived. There’s more to learn from Einstein than you thought. Here are some of his best quotes:

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

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

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.

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.

The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.

You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.

You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

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

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.

Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.

Love is a better teacher than duty.

Everyone should be respected as an individual, but no one idolized.

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.

To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.

When the solution is simple, God is answering.

The only source of knowledge is experience.

It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.

In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.

Most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character.

Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

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