Collected Quotes of Albert Einstein

This site collects more quotes attributed to Einstein than I have ever seen anywhere. The main page seems to be a somewhat random collection of contributions -- weird or interesting things.

Here are a few of the words of this very wise and very flawed man.
"Imagination is more important than knowledge."

"I want to know God's thoughts; the rest are details."

"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."

"The eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility."

"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."

"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."

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