  • "Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form."
    Albert Einstein, quoted in New York Times, March 19, 1940

    "Imagination is more important than knowledge."
    Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)"

    "A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
    Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)"

    "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
    Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

    Albert Einstein

    Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

    "It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."
    Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

    "It is easier to stay out than get out."
    Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

    "When a person cannot deceive himself the chances are against his being able to deceive other people."
    Mark Twain (1835 - 1910), Mark Twain's Autobiography

    "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."
    Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

    Martin Luther King Jr.

    "Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend."
    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
