Dear Quote Investigator, did Einstein say so?

Did he really say so? Quote Investigator might know...

Among the other things he is also quoted

“Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.”

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

“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

“Only a life lived for others is a life worth while.”

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

“If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?”

“Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.”

“Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.”

“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.”

“Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.”

“Never do anything against conscience, even if the state demands it”

“I am a deeply religious nonbeliever - This is a somewhat new kind of religion”

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

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

“Small is the number of people who see with their eyes and think with their minds.”

If Quote Investigator thinks these quotes are from Albert Einstein and not from someone else they provide us with some clues how the mind of a famous Patent office worker smashed the mental moulds that had imprisoned humanity in a Newtonian mechanistic world.
