A Quote by Albert Einstein on solitude, nationalism, family, and community

A Quote by Albert Einstein on ease, happiness, ideals, kindness, beauty, truth, motivation, ethics, and want

I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves - the ethical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty.  The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth.

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.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on mystery, spirituality, experience, religiosity, and divinity

The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.  It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of all true art and science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.  It was the experience of mystery - even if mixed with fear - that engendered religion.  A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, our perceptions of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which only in their most primitive forms are accessible to our minds - it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute true religiosity;  in this sense, and, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on life, purpose, journey, interdependence, and service

How strange is the lot of us mortals!  Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it.  But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people - first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies are bound by the ties of sympathy.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on kiss, pretty, girl, man, and attention

Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.

A Quote by Albert Einstein

Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.
