Here are some of my favorite Einstein quotes:

einstein best quotes

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

— Albert Einstein

It is not so very important for a person to learn facts. For that he does not really need a college. He can learn them from books. The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think-something that cannot be learned from books.

— Albert Einstein

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

— Albert Einstein

He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.

— Albert Einstein

I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.

- Albert Einstein.

You're aware the boy failed my grade school math class, I take it? And not that many years later he's teaching college. Now I ask you: Is that the sorriest indictment of the American educational system you ever heard? [pauses to light cigarette.] No aptitude at all for long division, but never mind. It's him they ask to split the atom. How he talked his way into the Nobel Prize is beyond me. But then, I suppose it's like the man says, "It's not what you know..."

— Karl Arbeiter, former teacher of Albert Einstein

Creation is the greatest drug. When you create something, you get this little endorphin buzz. Why do you think Einstein looked like that? (Robin Williams)

One of my favorite Einstein quotes is:

Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.

Something I learned recently. Creating is one thing, but creating something truly personal and then putting it out to the world, it's a whole different game. Especially when the world responds.

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.

Simply: If you don´t know, don´t speak. In my country we say: "En boca cerrada no entran moscas"

Rodrigo, I like that.

It is better to say nothing than to say something wrong.

Thanks, Adam. Is the better way to obtain or achieve a goal, be honest, in that way you will find somebody who know the correct answer. I have learned to listen another people.

To achieve is the correct verb, sorry. I am watching a movie at the time.
