Albert Einstein's Words of Wisdom

Albert Einstein was not only a great scientist, but also an awesome philosopher. The great harvest I have personally reaped from Einstein is his words of wisdom.

Einstein words of wisdom are imperishable; and they are great sources of inspiration.


1)What do you think of the following quotes?
2)Which one is your favorite? Why?

Einstein's quotes:

"Nothing that I can do will change the structure of the universe. But maybe, by raising my voice, I can help in the greatest of all causes--goodwill among men and peace on earth."

"A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on."

"A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?"

"All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree."

"Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools."

"Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts."

"Force always attracts men of low morality."

"How I wish that somewhere there existed an island for those who are wise and of goodwill! In such a place even I would be an ardent patriot."

"How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people."

"Human beings must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it."

"Humanity has every reason to place the proclaimers of high moral standards and values above the discoverers of objective truth. What humanity own to personalities like Buddha, Moses, and Jesus ranks for me higher than all the achievements of the inquiring constructive mind."

"I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."

"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."

"It is only to the individual that a soul is given."

"Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile."

"Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person."

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

"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."

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