A Quote by Albert Einstein on fantasy, gifts, talent, thinking, and thought

When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on certainty, needs, questions, and thought

We come now to the question: what is a priori certain or necessary, respectively in geometry (doctrine of space) or its foundations? Formerly we thought everything; nowadays we think nothing. Already the distance-concept is logically arbitrary; there need be no things that correspond to it, even approximately.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on thought and words

These thoughts did not come in any verbal formulation. I rarely think in words at all. A thought comes, and I may try to express it in words afterward.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on experience, independence, mathematics, reality, and thought

How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought independent of experience, is so admirably adapted to the objects of reality?

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 Camus on labor, mountains, punishment, reason, and thought

The gods had condemned Sisyphus to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone would fall back of its own weight. They had thought with some reason that there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor.

A Quote by Alan Moore on madness, past, and thought

When you find yourself locked onto an unpleasant train of thought, heading for the places in your past where the screaming is unbearable, remember there's always madness. Madness is the emergency exit.

There was once an old sailor my grandfather knew, Who had so many things which he wanted to do That, whenever he thought it was time to begin, He couldn't because of the state he was in.
