Albert Einstein Quote
“Be a loner. That gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Have holy curiosity. Make your life worth living.”
Einstein and the Poet (1983)
As quoted by Ernst Straus in Einstein: A Centenary Volume by A.P. French (1980), p. 32.
“Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.”
