Albert Einstein quote

Einstein – what a man!

Albert Einstein was a theoretical physicist and is the most famous scientist in human history. He developed the general theory of relativity, and is perhaps best known for his mass/energy equivalence formula E=mc2.

In 1921 he received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his “services to theoretical physics”, and in particular his discovery of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory.

A Genius… a pre-eminent scientist of the modern age, a philosopher and humanist…Einstein’s theories and discoveries have profoundly affected the way we view and understand the world and our place within it.

In the week that Salesforce launches Einstein we thought it was only apt to pay homage to the great man and recall some of his witty, insightful and thought-provoking quotes:

Enjoy!

  1. “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.”

  2. “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

  3. “Human knowledge and skills alone cannot lead humanity to a happy and dignified life. Humanity has every reason to place the proclaimers of high moral standards and values above the discoverers of objective truth.”

  4. “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”

  5. “The important thing is not to stop questioning; curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

  6. “I, at any rate, am convinced that He (God) does not throw dice.”

  7. “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”

  8. “Falling in love is not at all the most stupid thing that people do— but gravitation cannot be held responsible for it.”

  9. “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.”

  10. “Look deep in to nature then you will understand everything better.”
