Man is here for the sake of other men – above all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness depends.

Some suggestions for you :

Genius is not that you are smarter than everyone else. It is that you are ready to receive the inspiration.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.

Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone.

Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.

Science has therefore been charged with undermining morality, but the charge is unjust. A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

Nonsense, seems to sum up everything.

As the area of light expands, so does the perimeter of darkness.

Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.

I know quite certainly that I myself have no special talent; curiosity, obsession and dogged endurance, combined with self-criticism, have brought me to my ideas.

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

A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years but a photograph always remains the same. How nice to look at a photograph of mother or father taken many years ago. You see them as you remember them. But as people live on, they change completely. That is why I think a photograph can be kind.

Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.

I gang my own gait and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties I have never lost an obstinate sense of detachment, of the need for solitude — a feeling which increases with the years.

Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
