2. Common sense is the collection of prejudices
acquired by age eighteen.


3. Everything should be made as simple as possible,
but not one bit simpler.

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

9. Imagination is more important than knowledge.


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


11. Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses
his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.


12. The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.


13. The important thing is not to stop questioning.


14. The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and science.


15. The most incomprehensible thing about the world is

19. Try not to become a man of success but rather to
become a man of value.


20. You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.


21. Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.


22. 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.

23. The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything
save our modes of thinking and we thus drift
toward unparalleled catastrophe.


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


25. You ask me if I keep a notebook to record my great ideas. I've only ever had one.


26. Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.


27. Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.


28. The discovery of the nuclear chain reaction need not bring
about the destruction of mankind any more than did
the discovery of matches.


29. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.


30. If you can speak of technical things only in technical terms,
you do not understand them.


31. If I'd known what I was unleashing, I'd have become a watchmaker.


32. I want to know all Gods thoughts...
all the rest are just details.


33. Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.


34. It was the experience of mystery -- even if mixed with fear -- that engendered religion.


35. The difference between stupidity and genius is that
genius has its limits.


36. God does not care about our mathematical difficulties.
He integrates empirically.


37. If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not
be called research, would it?


38. Education is what remains after one has forgotten
everything he learned in school.


39. Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have
to earn one's living at it.


40. It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in
creative expression and knowledge.


41. Technological progress is like an axe in the hands
of a pathological criminal.


42. Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only
be attained through understanding.


43. 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.


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


45. Whoever undertakes to set himself up as judge in
the field of truth and knowledge is shipwrecked
by the laughter of the Gods.


46. Only a life lived for others is a life worth while.


47. The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.


48. Do not worry about your problems with mathematics,
I assure you mine are far greater.


49. A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin;
what else does a man need to be happy.


50. The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which
we are permitted to remain children all our lives.

a valuable gift and not as a hard duty

Because we have not yet learned to make sensible use of it.



54. The only source of knowledge is experience.


55. Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing.


56. A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and
outer life are based on the labours of others.


57. The example of great and pure individuals is the only thing
that can lead us to noble thoughts and deeds.



58. I cannot believe that God would choose to
play dice with the universe.


59. One does not make wars less likely by
formulating rules of warfare.


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


61. Joy in looking and comprehending is
nature's most beautiful gift.


62. Gravitation can not be held responsible
for people falling in love

they are not certain; and as far as they are certain,
they do not refer to reality.
