Life. By Einstein.

Here's another. I think it should be fun to share with all of you how the Physics genius hated school, exams, Mathematics but remained neutral on plagiarism. But here we are stuck with formal education. Pfft.

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

"The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources."

"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education."

"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."

"If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut."

"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."

“Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts."

“Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions.”

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

“It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.”

“Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.”

“The important thing is not to stop questioning.”

“Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value.”
