If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects.
The result of [the] cumulative efforts to investigate the cell to investigate life at the molecular level is a loud, clear, piercing cry of ‘design!’ The result is so unambiguous and so significant that it must be ranked as one of the greatest achievements in the history of science. The discovery rivals those of Newton and Einstein, Lavoisier and Schrödinger, Pasteur, and Darwin. The observation of the intelligent design of life is as momentous as the observation that the earth goes around the sun.michael behe
“Academics tend to think they are each the next Einstein whose ‘creativity’ will finally be uncovered a hundred years from now. That's when society should deliver their project funding.”stephen bush
Much later, when I was discussing cosmological problems with Einstein, he remarked that the introduction of the cosmological term was the biggest blunder he ever made in his life.george gamow
God not only plays dice. He also sometimes throws the dice where they cannot be seen. See Einstein 301:32.
We completely ignore the human value of the information. A selection of 100 letters is given a certain information value, and we do not investigate whether it makes sense in English, and, if so, whether the meaning of the sentence is of any practical importance. According to our definition, a set of 100 letters selected at random (according to the rules of Table 1.1), a sentence of 100 letters from a newspaper, a piece of Shakespeare or a theorem of Einstein are given exactly the same informational value.léon brillouin
Einstein repeatedly argued that there must be simplified explanations of nature, because God is not capricious or arbitrary. No such faith comforts the software engineer. Much of the complexity he must master is arbitrary complexity […] because they were designed by different people, rather than by God.fred brooks
To say that Nature displays intelligence doesn't make you a Christian fundamentalist. Einstein said as much, and a fascinating theory called the anthropic principle has been seriously considered by Stephen Hawking, among others.deepak chopra
Both Einstein and Freud were clever in leaving Germany, because both of them would doubtlessly have been caught by Himmler and murdered.hans frank
It is time to remind Sharon that the star of David belongs to all Jews, not to his repulsive Government. His actions are staining the star of David with blood. The Jewish people, whose gifts to civilised discourse include Einstein and Epstein, Mendelssohn and Mahler, Sergei Eisenstein and Billy Wilder, are now symbolised throughout the world by the blustering bully Ariel Sharon, a war criminal implicated in the murder of Palestinians at the Sabra and Shatila camps and now involved in killing Palestinians once again.Gerald Kaufman
It did not last: the devil, shouting "Ho.Let Einstein be," restored the status quo.
Though perhaps less universally known than such figures as Einstein or Gandhi (who became symbols of our time) Daisetz Suzuki was no less remarkable a man than these. And though his work may not have had such resounding and public effect, he contributed no little to the spiritual and intellectual revolution of our time.d. t. suzuki
Shakespeare wrote, Einstein thought, Ataturk built.bill clinton
Einstein, my upset stomach hates your theory it almost hates you yourself:;! How am I to provide for my students:;? What am I to answer to the philosophers:;?paul ehrenfest
Einstein was a giant. His head was in the clouds, but his feet were on the ground. But those of us who are not that tall have to choose!richard feynman
To remove these one had to account for an “observer” (that is at least for one subject): (i) Observations are not absolute but relative to an observer’s point of view (i.e., his coordinate system: Einstein ); (ii) Observations affect the observed so as to obliterate the observer’s hope for prediction (i.e., his uncertainty is absolute: Heisenberg ). After this, we are now in the possession of the truism that a description (of the universe) implies one who describes it (observes it).heinz von foerster
According to the most influential twentieth-century philosopher of science, Karl Popper, a theory is scientific only in so far as it is falsifiable, and should be given up as soon as it has been falsified. By this standard, the theories of Darwin and Einstein should never have been accepted.john n. gray
My own view is that this planet is used as a penal colony, lunatic asylum and dumping ground by a superior civilization , to get rid of the undesirable and unfit. I can't prove it, but you can't disprove it either. It happens to be my view, but it doesn't challenge any of the findings of Darwin or Huxley or Einstein or Hawking .christopher hitchens
Could it be, nevertheless, that Einstein 's theory is wrong? Might it be necessary to modify it to find a new theory of gravity that can explain both the stronger gravity and the apparent antigravity being observed today rather than simply throwing in invisible things to make the standard model work?john moffat
Animistic savages prostrating themselves before a painted stone have always seemed to me to be nearer the truth than any Einstein or Bertrand Russell.Malcolm Muggeridge
Of all heroes , Spinoza was Einstein 's greatest. No one expressed more strongly then he a belief in the harmony , the beauty , and most of all the ultimate comprehensibility of nature .john archibald wheeler
Einstein argued that there must be simplified explanations of nature, because God is not capricious or arbitrary. No such faith comforts the software engineer.
Despite the immense diversity of creation, we all accept that there exists in nature a profound underlying unity. The search for this unity provides the motivation for the lives of many different men some who, like Einstein , search for it in general natural laws and others who, like Teilhard de Chardin, would trace cosmic evolution to a divine origin.
I like quoting Einstein. Know why? Because nobody dares contradict you.
As morning branded the sea, darkness fell away at the far side of the beach. I turned to follow it.samuel r. delany
Comparing oneself with Galileo or Einstein is certainly good for the ego provided one refrains from going into too much detail.
Einstein is our ace in the hole. We can't afford to lose him. Auf Wiedersehen!
