Thinking and Knowledge Dedicated to the sensible person behind the scientist

  • He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
  • Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited.
  • I don't know, I don't care, and it doesn't make any difference!
  • I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.
  • I never think of the future - it comes soon enough.
  • I think and think for months and years. Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right.
  • A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be. Information is not knowledge.
  • It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.
  • Keep on sowing your seed, for you never know which will grow - perhaps it all will.
  • Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
  • Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
  • Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
  • Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
  • Memory is deceptive because it is colored by today's events.
  • Never lose a holy curiosity.
  • No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.
  • On the other hand, the concept owes its meaning and its justification exclusively to the totality of the sense impressions which we associate with it.
  • Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.
  • When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.
  • You can never solve a problem on the level on which it was created.
  • The only source of knowledge is experience.
  • The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.
  • We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.
  • The important thing is not to stop questioning.
  • The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
  • The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.
  • We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
  • The only real valuable thing is intuition.
  • There comes a time when the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge but can never prove how it got there.
  • Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
