A Quote by Albert Einstein on love, biology, first love, and scientific explanations

No, this trick won't work...  How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?

A Quote by Albert Einstein on art, desires, life, men, motives, nature, pain, perception, science, thought, and world

. . . one of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on concern, destiny, effort, and interest

The concern for man and his destiny must always be the chief interest of all technical effort. Never forget it among your diagrams and equations.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on art, children, desires, guidance, kindness, play, schools, society, and teachers

The point is to develop the childlike inclination for play and the childlike desire for recognition and to guide the child over to important fields for society. Such a school demands from the teacher that he be a kind of artist in his province.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on genius, persuasion, physics, play, science, secrets, theory, and yielding

One needn't be a crank to miss the scientific boat. The very paragon of genius, Albert Einstein, couldn't be persuaded to give quantum physics his unreserved endorsement. Here is Einstein's most frequently paraphrased statement of dissatisfaction with the theory: Quantum mechanics is very impressive. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory yields a lot, but it hardly brings us any closer to the secret of the Old One. In any case I am convinced that He doesn't play dice.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on eternity, politics, and present

Equations are more important to me, because politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on driving, experience, force, religion, research, and science

I assert that the cosmic religious experience is the strongest and the noblest driving force behind scientific research.
