A Quote by Albert Einstein on belief, departure, future, illusions, past, people, physics, present, and world

Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics,know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.

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.
