My Feng Shui blog is about Chinese wisdom. However Western wisdom, while very different, is equally  profound.

Einstein was perhaps the greatest Theoretical Physicist ever, and his wisdom is often quoted. This post has some of his well known sayings.

Einstein’s Sayings 爱因斯坦名言:

1、Imagination is more important than knowledge. 想象力比知识更重要。

2、Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. 逻辑会把你从A带到B,想象力能带你去任何地方。

3、Joy in looking and comprehending is nature’s most beautiful gift. 从观察和理解中获得乐趣是大自然赐予的最美好的礼物。

4、Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. 试着不去做一个成功的人,而去做一个有价值的人。

5、If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough. 如果你不能把它简单地解释出来,那说明你还没有很好的理解它。

6、When the solution is simple, God is answering. 当答案很简单时,是上帝在回答。

7、Isn’t it strange that I who have written only unpopular books should be such a popular fellow? 这件事不奇怪吗——我写的书从不畅销,但我却是个如此有名的家伙?

8、Small is the number of people who see with their eyes and think with their minds. 只有少数人在用他们自己的眼睛观察、用他们自己的头脑思考。

9、The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible. 这世界最无法理解的事情是它是可理解的。

10、The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive. 一个人的价值,应当看他贡献了什么,而不应当看他取得了什么。

11、Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving. 人生就像骑单车。想保持平衡就得往前走。

12.Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind. 科学没有信仰是瘸子,信仰没有科学是瞎子。

13.The mass of a body is a measure of its energy content. 一个物体的质量就是其所含能量的度量单位。

14.Innovation is not the product of logical thought, even though the final product is tied to a logical structure. 创新不是由逻辑思维带来的,尽管最后的产物有赖于一个符合逻辑的结构。(很有见地!!!)

15. It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity. 有一个现象的明显程度已经让我毛骨悚然,这便是我们的人性已经远远落后我们的科学技术了。
