Einstein Quotes

Posted by sebastiandurandeu on March 8, 2008

“Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.”. This is also know as the KISS principle in desing that states that complexity should always be avoided.
At the same time, Antoine de Saint Exupéry said “It seems that perfection is reached not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away”.

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

“The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.”

“Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.”

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

“The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.”

“Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.”

“If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.”

I’ve found most of these on: http://www.quotedb.com/  and http://www.brainyquote.com/.
