I've done a previous column on Einstein, but these are different quotes than the ones I used before. He was a marvelously witty man, besides being a brilliant one.
1. Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.
2. The only real valuable thing is intuition.
3. I am convince that He (God) does not play dice.
4. A person starts to live when he can live outside himself.
5. Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from weak minds.
6. The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.
7. The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
8. Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.
9. The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.
10. If A is success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play, and z is keeping your mouth shut.
I'd love it if you told me your favorite. Mine is no. 10, and some of you will surely agree.
Please vote on your favorite. I hate to think these great witticisms of Einstein's just float around with no response.
