Einstein’s Declarations

“God does not play dice with the universe.”

“No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong”

“The more I study science the more I believe in God.”

“Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

“I’m not an atheist, and I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.”

“Subtle is the Lord, but malicious he is not.”

“I want to know God’s thoughts−the rest are details.”

“”The man who regards his own life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unfortunate but almost disqualified from life.”

“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”

“As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud, I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene. No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.” Saturday Evening Post, October 26, 1929
