Never regard study as a duty, but as the enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later work belongs.
      - [Study]

No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment may at any time prove me wrong.
      - possibly said by [Experiment : Proof : Research]

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.
      - [Problems]

Nor do I take into account a danger of starting a chain reaction of a scope great enough to destroy part or all of the planet. But it is not necessary to imagine the earth being destroyed like a nova by a stellar explosion to understand vividly the growing scope of atomic war and to recognize that unless another war is it is likely to ring destruction on a scale never before held possible, and even now hardly conceived, and that little civilization would survive it.
      - [Atomic Bombs]

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.
      - [Value]

Nothing happens until something moves.
      - [Action : Nothingness]

On the big Bang theory: "For every one billion particles of antimatter there were one billion and one particles of matter. And when the mutual annihilation was complete, one billionth remained - and that's our present universe."
      - [Creation]

Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.
      - [Limits]

One cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.
      - [War]

Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.
      - [Life]

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.
      - [Effort]

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
      - [Stupidity]

Our task must be to free ourselves . . . by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
      - [Compassion]

Out of clutter, find Simplicity. From discord, find Harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
      - [Simplicity]

People love chopping wood. In this activity one immediately sees results.
      - [Action]

Perfection of means and confusion of ends seem to characterize our age.
      - [Results]

Politics is more difficult than physics.
      - [Politics]

Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.
      - [Problems]

Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.
      - [Mathematics]

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.
      - [Physics]

Quantum mechanics is very impressive. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory yields a lot, but it hardly brings us any closer to the secret of the Old One. In any case I am convinced that He doesn't play dice.
      - [God]

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who read too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
      - [Books]

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.
      - [Reality]

Relativity applies to physics, not ethics.
      - [Physics]

Relativity teaches us the connection between the different descriptions of one and the same reality.
      - [Reality]
