words of wisdom

Albert Einstein was a very clever man. That's not news to anyone. But his real genius was not in physics or mathematics... it was in his ability to see beyond existing knowledge and develop new ideas. Here are some of his more famous quotes, for your perusal and pondering...


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand."

"Reality is merely an illusion, although a very persistent one."

"There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle."

"The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once."

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

"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."

"Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them."

"I don't know, I don't care, and it doesn't make any difference!"

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

and munkey’s personal favourite:

"Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love."
