A Quote by Albert Einstein on strength, mastery, and purpose

Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master.  For this reason mastery demands all of a person.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on world, cosmos, reality, emotions, life, and experience

Man tries to make for himself in the fashion that suits him best a simplified and intelligible picture of the world; he then tries to some extent to substitute this cosmos of his for the world of experience, and thus to overcome it. This is what the painter, the poet, the speculative philosopher, and the natural scientists do, each in his own fashion. Each makes this cosmos and its construction the pivot of his emotional life, in order to find in this way peace and security which he can not find in the narrow whirlpool of personal experience.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on mysterious, art, science, beauty, experience, and spirituality

The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious - the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on mysteriousness, mystery, art, science, wonder, and spirituality

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on military, war, patriotism, nationalism, heroism, violence, and hypocrisy

The worst outcrop of herd life [is] the military system, which I abhor.  That a man can take pleasure in marching in fours to the strains of a band is enough to make me despise him.  He has only been given his big brain by mistake; unprotected spinal marrow was all he needed.  This plague-spot of civilization ought to be abolished with all possible speed.  Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism - how passionately I hate them!  How vile and despicable war seems to me!  I would rather be hacked in pieces than take part in such an abominable business.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on meaningfulness, meaninglessness, meaning, atheism, and existentialism

The man who regards his own life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unhappy but hardly fit for life.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on god, rewards, punishes, theism, and afterlife

I cannot conceive of a God who rewards and punishes his creatures, or has a will of the kind that we experience in ourselves.  Neither can I nor would I want to conceive of an individual that survives his physical death; let feeble souls, from fear or absurd egoism, cherish such thoughts.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on interdependence, work, community, and giving

A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.
