Everybody knows that Albert Einstein was a theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity and, in the process, revolutionized our understanding of physics and the universe. But there was a practical side to Einstein, as well as a humorous one. The following are just a few of his more memorable observations.
"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits."
"Once you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy."
"You never fail until you stop trying."
"Imagination is more important than knowledge."
"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education."
"Creativity is intelligence having fun."
"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious."
"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."
"If you can't explain it to a six-year-old, you don't understand it yourself."
"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."
"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."
"Curiosity has its own reason for existing."
"Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding."
"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is to not stop questioning."
