Albert Einstein was a German born physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, among other feats. He is considered the most influential physicist of the 20th century.  Some of the famous quotes by Albert Einstein that inspire us are:


  1. “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
  2. “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
  3. “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
  4. “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.”
  5. “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
  6. Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.”
  7. “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
  8. “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
  9. “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”
  10. “A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his 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 this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
  11. “Once you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.”
  12. “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.”
  13. “It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure.”
  14. “The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.”
  15. “We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, and we create the dreams.”
  16. “We all know that light travels faster than sound. That’s why certain people appear bright until you hear them speak.”
  17. “Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and it’s beauty.”
  18. “Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.”
