A Quote by Albert Einstein on action, conviction, murder, and war

How despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on admiration, conviction, emotion, god, humility, ideas, mind, power, religion, spirit, superiority, and universe

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able toperceive with our frail and feeble mind. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible Universe, forms my idea of God.
