    I dunno why, but I like reading his quotes, and all of them make sense...
    Here are some:

    "It has become increasinly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."

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


    "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."

    "The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible."

    "Any intelligent 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."

    "Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school."

    "Equations are more important to me, because politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity."

    Err... yeah

    Energy = Mass times speed of light squared

    Its just an equation that transforms mass (Energy captured in a bottle so that it is locked in place) into light (Energy that is released)

    Of course you knew that Maniac.....

    I like reading quotes too, i like the second one you have there...

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

    Isn't he saying that World War IV will be fought using words (hence the sticks and stones analogy). I think that's really interesting.

    Hehe, no. He is saying that he's not sure what type of weapons WW3 will be faught with. (prolly super duper nuclear weapons) So after a nuclear war, what is left? No weapons, that's for sure. Not to many people either. So he says Sticks and Stones, meaning there is nothing left but simple weapons like that.

    "God does not play dice."

    Einstein had some very big hangups with quantum mechanics.

    That's probably the best description of the next-gen console war. Odd that that quote is just so relevant.

    Yeah sure does describe the way the next gen consoles are going.

    Nintendo are gaming geniuses and they must have had a lot of experience and courage to move in the other direction. It also shows how foolish some gaming companies went during their cycles in the entertainment industry. Sega bobmed out with the Dreamcast and didn't offer anything new. Just a controller that seems very reminiscent of the Xbox controller.

    Nintendo survived the Atari war, Sega war, and now its trying to hold itself against the Sony and Microsoft companies. At least Nintendo is winning the handheld console war against Sony.

    "Any intelligent 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."
    This quote reminds me of the Sony and Nintendo
    Sony is the fool whos makes an upgraded PS3 with the almighty (hehe) Blu-Ray disk (Bigger more complex anyone)
    Nintendo using its incredible minds has taken a leap in a new direction (touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction)
    Just my two sense anyway.


    "Light and Dark its but a choice..
    its what you do with that choice that counts"
    Just so you know thats purely made up by myself


    and my favourite that i only heard recently heard
    "God made science so people would stop bugging him"

    Yeah that guy really is good at taking a step back and looking at life.

    For a mathamatician/physicist/scientist, he is very religious and theological

    I agree, it's pretty weird. Usually scientists (of this age and time) don't believe in anything metaphysical.

    I can't believe I haven't put a quote in my sig yet. :p

    Just to let you know, Albert Einstein had a friend {whom many think him as his albert einstein's teacher at least mathematics-wise}, Karatheodori, a Greek mathematician, you can search on the net and confirm this.


    ''I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.'' I ve heard this one some years now, I didnt know Einstein said it. And jenova is ,ofc, right. Einstein propably foresaw the technological advancements, and knew in a way that humans could get overpowered by their own fear, and destroy the world on their efforts to be aggresive while confronting each other. However his times were much more unstable than ours. I don't even think he could imagine that most of Europe, America and Asia could live in peace, with the real war turning to diplomacy and economical penetration. But we must make sure no WW3 happens anyway.

    Niels Bohr (a quantum physicist) made a famous comeback to that one: "Stop telling God what to do". :D
