albert einstein

next blog post in my libertarian + pacifist series presents albert einstein (1879 - 1955), who won the nobel prize in physics in 1921. unlike today at that time was nobel prize a scientist award. today it is only manifestation of political power + influence [obama, EU, etc.], you know? as a german jew from ulm (kingdom of württemberg) einstein wisely didn't return to nazi germany from his trip to usa when adolf hitler came to power in 1933 ...

QUOTES (try this einsteinquotes website):
  • I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
  • Imagination is more important than knowledge.
  • Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.
  • Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.
  • Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe.
  • A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
  • etc
