Words of the Wise


Albert Einstein

“Before God we are all equally wise - and equally foolish.”

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

“I never think of the future - it comes soon enough.”

“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.”

“Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.”

“The important thing is not to stop questioning.”

“The release of atomic energy has not created a new problem. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one.”


Thomas Jefferson

“Advertisements contain the only truths to be relied on in a newspaper.”

“Always take hold of things by the smooth handle."

“But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.”


That's all for now.
