A Quote by Albert Einstein on behavior, death, education, ethics, fear, hope, punishment, religion, reward, and sympathy

A Quote by Albert Einstein on brevity, existence, life, people, purpose, reflection, and senses

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.
