  1. enjoy lots of Einstein’s quotes;

    Everyone is a genius. But if
    you judge a fish by its ability to
    climb a tree, it will live its
    whole life believing that it is
    stupid’.
    great mind has always encounter
    opposition from weak & lazy
    folks
    Any intelligent fool can
    make things bigger,
    more complex, and
    more violent. It takes a
    touch of genius — and a
    lot of courage — to move
    in the opposite
    direction.”

    important than

    the world to understand
    is the income tax.”

    illusion, albeit a very
    persistent one.”

    thing is intuition.”
    “A person starts to live
    when he can live outside
    himself.”
    “I am convinced that He
    (God) does not play
    dice.”
    “God is subtle but he is
    not malicious.”
    “Weakness of attitude
    becomes weakness of
    character.”
    “I never think of the
    future. It comes soon
    enough.”
    “The eternal mystery of
    the world is its
    comprehensibility.”
    “Sometimes one pays
    most for the things one
    gets for nothing.”
    “Science without
    religion is lame.
    Religion without science
    is blind.”
    “Anyone who has never
    made a mistake has
    never tried anything
    new.”
    “Great spirits have often
    encountered violent
    opposition from weak
    minds.”
    “Everything should be
    made as simple as
    possible, but not
    simpler.”
    “Common sense is the
    collection of prejudices
    acquired by age
    eighteen.”
    “Science is a wonderful
    thing if one does not
    have to earn one’s living
    at it.”
    “The secret to creativity
    is knowing how to hide
    your sources.”
    “The only thing that
    interferes with my
    learning is my
    education.”
    “God does not care
    about our mathematical
    difficulties. He
    integrates empirically.”
    “The whole of science is
    nothing more than a
    refinement of everyday
    thinking.”
    “Technological progress
    is like an axe in the
    hands of a pathological
    criminal.”
    “Peace cannot be kept
    by force. It can only be
    achieved by
    understanding.”
    “The most
    incomprehensible thing
    about the world is that
    it is comprehensible.”
    “We can’t solve
    problems by using the
    same kind of thinking
    we used when we
    created them.”
    “Education is what
    remains after one has
    forgotten everything he
    learned in school.”
    “The important thing is
    not to stop questioning.
    Curiosity has its own
    reason for existing.”
    “Do not worry about
    your difficulties in
    Mathematics. I can
    assure you mine are still
    greater.”

    important to me,

    the present, but an
    equation is something
    for eternity.”
    “If A is a success in life,
    then A equals x plus y
    plus z. Work is x; y is

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

    are certain, they do not
    refer to reality.”

    set himself up as a

    laughter of the gods.”
    “I know not with what

    fought with sticks and
    stones.”
    “In order to form an
    immaculate member of
    a flock of sheep one
    must, above all, be a
    sheep.”
    “The fear of death is the
    most unjustified of all
    fears, for there’s no risk
    of accident for someone
    who’s dead.”
    “Too many of us look
    upon Americans as
    dollar chasers. This is a
    cruel libel, even if it is
    reiterated thoughtlessly
    by the Americans
    themselves.”
    “Heroism on command,
    senseless violence, and
    all the loathsome
    nonsense that goes by
    the name of patriotism
    — how passionately I
    hate them!”
    “No, this trick won’t
    work…How on earth
    are you ever going to
    explain in terms of
    chemistry and physics
    so important a
    biological phenomenon
    as first love?”
    “My religion consists of
    a humble admiration of
    the illimitable superior
    spirit who reveals
    himself in the slight
    details we are able to
    perceive with our frail
    and feeble mind.”
    “Yes, we have to divide
    up our time like that,
    between our politics
    and our equations. But
    to me our equations are
    far more important, for
    politics are only a
    matter of present
    concern. A
    mathematical equation
    stands forever.”
    “The release of atom
    power has changed
    everything except our
    way of thinking…the
    solution to this problem
    lies in the heart of
    mankind. If only I had
    known, I should have
    become a watchmaker.”
    “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.”
    “The most beautiful
    thing we can experience
    is the mysterious. It is
    the source of all true art
    and all science. He to
    whom this emotion is a
    stranger, who can no
    longer pause to wonder
    and stand rapt in awe, is
    as good as dead: his
    eyes are closed.”
    “A man’s ethical
    behavior should be
    based effectually on
    sympathy, education,
    and social ties; no
    religious basis is
    necessary. Man would
    indeeded be in a poor
    way if he had to be
    restrained by fear of
    punishment and hope of
    reward after death.”
    “The further the
    spiritual evolution of
    mankind advances, the
    more certain it seems to
    me that the path to
    genuine religiosity does
    not lie through the fear
    of life, and the fear of
    death, and blind faith,
    but through striving
    after rational
    knowledge.”
    “Now he has departed
    from this strange world
    a little ahead of me.
    That means nothing.
    People like us, who
    believe in physics, know
    that the distinction
    between past, present,
    and future is only a
    stubbornly persistent
    illusion.”
    “You see, wire telegraph
    is a kind of a very, very
    long cat. You pull his
    tail in New York and his
    head is meowing in Los
    Angeles. Do you
    understand this? And
    radio operates exactly
    the same way: you send
    signals here, they
    receive them there. The
    only difference is that
    there is no cat.”
    “One had to cram all
    this stuff into one’s mind
    for the examinations,
    whether one liked it or
    not. This coercion had
    such a deterring effect
    on me that, after I had
    passed the final
    examination, I found
    the consideration of any
    scientific problems
    distasteful to me for an
    entire year.”
    “…one of the strongest
    motives that lead men
    to art and science is
    escape from everyday
    life with its painful
    crudity and hopeless
    dreariness, from the
    fetters of one’s own
    ever-shifting desires. A
    finely tempered nature
    longs to escape from the
    personal life into the
    world of objective
    perception and
    thought.”
    “He who joyfully
    marches to music rank
    and file, has already
    earned my contempt.
    He has been given a
    large brain by mistake,
    since for him the spinal
    cord would surely
    suffice. This disgrace to
    civilization should be
    done away with at once.
    Heroism at command,
    how violently I hate all
    this, how despicable and
    ignoble war is; I would
    rather be torn to shreds
    than be a part of so base
    an action. It is my
    conviction that killing
    under the cloak of war
    is nothing but an act of
    murder.”
    “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.”
    “Not everything that
    counts can be counted,
    and not everything that
    can be counted
    counts.”

  2. can you include a social forum on this website for knowledge orb lovers?

    • Dan Mantel - KnowledgeOrb Contributor

      There used to be a forum but with all the spammers it got to be a real headache. If enough people wanted a forum we could start one but I would be interested in how many people would want to use it.

  3. it will be a pleasure to be a part of this community
