We sleep 1/3 of... We sleep 1/3 of our lives away.
Copy
We still do not... We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us.
Copy
We will hope that... We will hope that future historians will explain the morbid symptoms of present day society as the childhood ailments of an aspiring humanity, due entirely to the excessive speed at which civilization was advancing.
Copy
We will not change... We will not change the hearts of other men by mechanisms, but by changing our hearts and speaking bravely… When we are clear in heart and mind – only then – shall we find courage to surmount the fear which haunts the world.
Copy
Weak people revenge. Strong... Weak people revenge. Strong people forgive. Intelligent people ignore.
Copy
Weakness of attitude becomes... Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.
Copy
What a sad era... What a sad era when it is easier to smash an atom than a prejudice.
Copy
What a strange thing... What a strange thing must be a girl’s soul! Do you really believe that you could find permanent happiness through others, even if this be the one and only beloved man? I know this sort of animal personally, from my own experience as I am one of them myself. Not too much should be expected from them, this I know quite exactly. Today we are sullen, tomorrow high-spirited, after tomorrow cold, then again irritated and half-sick of life. And so it goes.
Copy
What depressed me most... What depressed me most is, of course, the misfortune of my poor parents who have not had a happy moment for so many years. What further hurts deeply is that as an adult man, I have to look on without being able to do anything.
Copy
What I see in... What I see in Nature is a magnificent structure that we can comprehend only very imperfectly, and that must fill a thinking person with a feeling of humility. This is a genuinely religious feeling that has nothing to do with mysticism.
Copy
What I see is... What I see is a certain something, desolate and grey as infinity. I do not believe that the structure of the human brain is to be blamed for the fact that man cannot grasp infinity.
Copy
What is right is... What is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right.
Copy
What really interests me... What really interests me is whether God had any choice in the creation of the world.
Copy
When compared to six... When compared to six years’ schooling at a German authoritarian gymnasium, it made me clearly realize how much superior an education based on free action and personal responsibility is to one relying on outward authority.
Copy
When I am judging... When I am judging a theory, I ask myself whether, if I were God, I would have arranged the world in such a way.
Copy
When I examine myself... When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.
Copy
When I have no... When I have no special problem to occupy my mind, I love to reconstruct proofs of mathematical and physical theorems that have long been known to me. There is no goal in this, merely an opportunity to indulge in the pleasant occupation of thinking.
Copy
When I was a... When I was a little boy my father showed me a small compass, and the enormous impression that it made on me certainly played a role in my life.
Copy
When I was young,... When I was young, all I wanted and expected from life was to sit quietly in some corner doing my work without the public paying attention to me.
Copy
When the solution is... When the solution is simple, God is answering.
Copy
When you are courting... When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.
Copy
When you trip over... When you trip over love, it is easy to get up. But when you fall in love, it is impossible to stand again.
Copy
Where there’s a will... Where there’s a will there’s a way.
Copy
Whoever is careless with... Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.
Copy
Whoever undertakes to set... Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.
Copy
Why does this magnificent... Why does this magnificent applied science which saves work and makes life easier bring us so little happiness? The simple answer runs: Because we have not yet learned to make sensible use of it.
Copy
Why is it that... Why is it that no one understands me and everybody likes me
Copy
Why is it that... Why is it that nobody understands me, yet everybody likes me?
Copy
Wisdom is not a... Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.
Copy
With fame I become... With fame I become more and more stupid, which of course is a very common phenomenon.
Copy
Without ‘ethical culture’ there... Without ‘ethical culture’ there is no salvation for humanity.
Copy
Without creative personalities able... Without creative personalities able to think and judge independently, the upward development of society is as unthinkable as the development of the individual personality without the nourishing soil of the community.
Copy
Without deep reflection one... Without deep reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.
Copy
Without the sense of... Without the sense of fellowship with men of like mind, of preoccupation with the objective, the eternally unattainable in the field of art and scientific research, life would have seemed to me empty.
Copy
Women always worry about... Women always worry about things that men forget; men always worry about things women remember.
Copy
Women marry men hoping... Women marry men hoping they will change. Men marry women hoping they will not. So each is inevitably disappointed.
Copy
Yes, we have to... 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.
Copy
You ask me if... You ask me if I keep a notebook to record my great ideas. I've only ever had one.
Copy
You can never solve... You can never solve a problem on the level on which it was created.
Copy
You can’t blame gravity... You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.
Copy
You cannot simultaneously prevent... You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.
Copy

Copy
You do not really... You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother.
Copy
You have to learn... You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
Copy
You never fail until... You never fail until you stop trying.
Copy
You see, wire telegraph... 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.
Copy
Young people especially like... Young people especially like to contemplate bold projects. Also, it is natural for a serious young man to envision his desired goals with the greatest possible precision.
Copy
Your imagination is your... Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.
Copy
Your question is the... Your question is the most difficult in the world. It is not a question I can answer simply with yes or no. I am not an Atheist. I do not know if I can define myself as a Pantheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. May I not reply with a parable? The human mind, no matter how highly trained, cannot grasp the universe. We are in the position of a little child, entering a huge library whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written those books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order, which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of the human mind, even the greatest and most cultured, toward God. We see a universe marvelously arranged, obeying certain laws, but we understand the laws only dimly. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that sways the constellations. I am fascinated by Spinoza's Pantheism. I admire even more his contributions to modern thought. Spinoza is the greatest of modern philosophers, because he is the first philosopher who deals with the soul and the body as one, not as two separate things.
