    I learned a lot about Albert Einstein from this book However, if you want an in depth explanation of his life, a biography would obviously be the better choice This is a great source for authentic quotations Sources are shown along with each one, and it s obvious that much time was spent verifying exact phrasology and authenticity Great read, although some sections are a bit tedious and repetitious

    La natura di questo libro potrebbe trarre in inganno, perch non si tratta, come personalmente mi aspettavo, di una raccolta di saggi, ma di un testo composito, messo insieme esclusivamente dagli editori, che hanno raccolto e selezionato una vasta serie di aforismi, appunti, estratti di interviste e lettere personali, s da restituire nella forma di pillole le opinioni di Einstein su una sterminata serie di temi e campi.Un lavoro discutibile, ma che si pu perdonare alla luce dell immenso lavoro documentario svolto, per il quale ogni estratto non decontestualizzato, ma accompagnato da dati, fonti e talvolta commenti Molto adatta risulta dunque l inevitabile divisione tematica L idea sarebbe di quella di rispondere facilmente, sebbene in maniera riduttiva, a una domanda come cosa ne pensa Einstein di Si trova cos Einstein disquisire di politica, arte, musica, fisica, lanciarsi in affermazioni lapidarie su aspetti della vita quotidiana, stigmatizzare il matrimonio, fare satira, o emozionarsi davanti la misteriosa bellezza della Natura Ne risulta un ritratto composito, che smaschera il Genio e la sua irriducibile umanit , che si coglie anche e soprattutto nelle sue profonde contraddizioni, nelle sue opinioni pi controverse Si scopre un Einstein sempre pi misogino, si scopre il suo ambiguo rapporto con gli Stati Uniti ignorati, derisi, adulati e poi di nuoco criticati , con la patria ebrea, la sua utopia di un governo mondiale, l esaltazione della libert e pure il suo sebbene non convintissimo sostegno alla pena di morte Ma su tutti gli infiniti profili di quest uomo geniale, rimarr la beata adorazione del mistero della conoscenza.

    My friend Kevin Synder loaned this text to me Many of the quotations I could have cared less about but some on education, humankind, pacifism etc, I resonated with Some examples are National loyalty is limiting Men must be taught to think in world terms The monotony of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.The state is made for man, not man for the state The state should be our servant and not we its slaves.Peace cannot be kept by force It can only be achieved by understanding.Try to become not a man of success, but try rather to become a man of value.If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects.Only a life lived for others is worthwhile.The aim of education must be the training of independently acting and thinking individuals who, however, see in the service to the community their highest lift achievement.It is not so very important for a person to learn facts For that he does not really need college He can learn them from books The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks.

    Einstein disliked quotations, which he considered a poor attempt to simplify the complexity of mental processes by way of a single statement He said so, and someone wrote down that idea as a quotation Caaprice s selection of Einstein s words in this small anthology is unique in its focus on his personal life Here you find Einstein philosophizing about how people should treat each other, how we should appreciate undefinable experience, and paying compliments to his predecessors and contemporaries For example, one of his most interesting theories perfectly in line with our stereotype of the disinterested scientist wandering blindly through the world of social relationships, by the way is that he might not have devoted as much time and interest to scientific inquiry had his marriage been happy.At best, these quotations reveal Einstein the humanist, the man who understands relativity to mean that he was described in Germany as a German savant and in England as a Swiss Jew Unfortunately, these universal insights are hard to pick out, padded as they are by many mundane statements about his daily life or his admiration for Newton and others.

    I ve read biographies about Albert Einstein However, I liked this book because it was a collection of quotes by Einstein, his colleagues, and correspondence It gave the reader insight on his thoughts I especially like his quotes about knowledge and talent I have no special talents I am only passionately curious Einstein and I are alike Imagination is important than knowledge Knowledge is limited imagination encircles the world.
