i will show collected quotes from albert einstein who set the theory of relativity .. just all i want from you is to think in every quotes and choose the best one and tell me why "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction." "Imagination is more important than knowledge." "Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love." "I want to know God's thoughts; the rest are details." "The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax." "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." "The only real valuable thing is intuition." "A person starts to live when he can live outside himself." "I am convinced that He (God)does not play dice." "God is subtle but he is not malicious." "Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character." "I never think of the future. It comes soon enough." "The eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility." "Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing." "Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind." "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." "Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from weak minds."

"Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind." - This is cool. But did he really used the term "LAME"?

I like the last part."Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from weak minds."I feel all great people have encountered this problem."I think all great people aren't understood by weak minds hence the opposition.

This is interesting. The best one for me is this, "Anyone who has never made a mistake never tried anything new." A great part of life is having mistake and learning.People in the history is not the people today if they don't take the risk and failed forward. With mistakes, new things is discover, innovation happen, and life changes and grow.If you never mistakes, it means you never try. Your life is none sense, no excitement only fleeting.

Hello vito...this is an interesting and deep discussion indeed! I think I would have to choose "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new" basically because it is such a simple and basic quote and is so true, and easily understood by everyone...you don't need any insight into philosophy to understand this one whereas some of the other quotes are quite deep and not quite so easily understood. Everyone in life has made mistakes, though not everyone is willing to admit to them, and it is true that when we try new things we often make mistakes intially.
