In His Own Words: Albert Einstein

Since I’m in Seattle today, this post is short. But with Einstein, short is relative, right? 



For being a scientist, this famous brainiac sure had good things to say about all parts of life. Living from 1879-1955, he received the Nobel Prize and made enormous contributions to science, especially theoretical physics. But I realized, as I began to accumulate quotations by him, that he was also insightful on subjects from politics to imagination. 


Here he is, in his own words. Take a moment to read over these quotations, then think, digest, and weigh in.
·
“The hardest thing to understand in the world is the income tax.”


“Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.”



I don’t believe in mathematics.”  


“An empty stomach is not a good political advisor.”


“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
