Sage advice from scientist, theorist, and all-around smart guy Mr. Albert Einstein:


“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

“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.”

“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”

“It is in fact nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for what this delicate little plant needs more than anything, besides stimulation, is freedom. It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.”

“True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist.”

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

“It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.”

“The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.”
