30 sec reading: the world according to Einstein

A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler.
I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.

All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. As far as I’m concerned, I prefer silent vice to ostentatious virtue.
True religion is real living; living with all one’s soul, with all one’s goodness and righteousness.

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.

Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism.He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would suffice.

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

If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.
