Quotes from Albert Einstein


“If everyone realized what is in that book (meaning Science and Health), you would not have enough room anywhere to accommodate the people who would be clamoring for it.” (Spoken to a reading room attendant)

“Science and Health is beyond this generation’s understanding. It is the pure science; and, to think that a woman knew this over eighty years ago.” (Spoken to a reading room attendant)

“Scientists were rated as heretics by the church, but they were truly religious men because of their faith in the orderliness of the universe.”

“A human being is 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.”
