偉人故事:愛因斯坦 (Albert Einstein) 名言

教育,就是當一個人把在學校所學都忘光光之後,剩下的東西。Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.

如果我有1小時拯救世界,我會花55分鐘想問題,用5分鐘想解答。If I have only one hour to save the world, I would spend fifty five minutes defining the problem, and only five minutes finding solutions.

每個人都是天才。但如果你用爬樹的能力評斷一條魚,它將終其一生覺得自己是個笨蛋。Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

如果你沒辦法解釋給六歲孩童聽,表示你自己根本沒搞懂。If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.

邏輯能讓你從A到B,想像力卻能帶你到任何地方。Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

寧靜生活的單調無聊,恰恰是激發我想象力的最佳功臣。

把你的手放在滾熱的爐子上一分鐘,感覺起來像一小時,坐在一個漂亮姑娘身邊一小時,感覺起來像一分鐘,這就是相對論。Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.

天才和笨蛋之間的區別就是天才是有極限的。The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.

如果我的相對論被證明是正確的,德國人就會說我是德國人,法國佬會說我是一個世界公民,如果我的相對論被否定了,法國佬就會罵我德國鬼子,而德國人就會把我歸為猶太人。If my theory of relativity is proven correct, Germany will claim me as a German and France will say I am a man of the world. If it's proven wrong, France will say I am a German and Germany will say I am a Jew.

我不是無神論者,也稱不上是汎神論者。我們就像是個進入一座大型圖書館的小孩。圖書館裏藏滿了許多由不同語言寫成的書籍。這個小孩知道,這些書一定是由某(些)人所寫,祇是不知道他(們)是如何寫成的。這個小孩隱約地感覺到這些書的排列,彷彿依據某種神秘的規則,不過不知道是什麼規則。對我來說,似乎就連最聰明的人對於上帝的看法也是如此。
