Frases e pensamentos de Albert Einstein

Vídeo: Albert Einstein




"O pensamento lógico pode levar você de A a B, mas a imaginação te leva a qualquer parte do Universo."

"O único homem que está isento de erros, é aquele que não arrisca acertar."

"De absoluto só a Relatividade."

"Se a Teoria da Relatividade se mostrar correta, os alemães me chamarão de alemão, os suíços dirão que sou suíço e a França me rotulará de grande cientista; se estiver errada, os franceses dirão que sou suíço, os suíços me chamarão de alemão e os alemães me acusarão de judeu."

"O pensamento lógico pode levar você de A a B, mas a imaginação te leva a qualquer parte do Universo."

"Faça as coisas o mais simples que você puder, porém não se restrinja às mais simples."

"A palavra progresso não terá sentido enquanto houver crianças infelizes."

"A coisa mais bela que o homem pode experimentar é o mistério. É essa emoção fundamental que está na raíz de toda ciência e toda arte."

"Esse é o caminho mais belo que uma teoria física pode assumir: quando ela abre caminho para uma teoria mais ampla, sem perder seu carácter individual."

"Existem duas coisas infinitas: o Universo e a tolice dos homens"

"A ciência sem a religião é manca, a religião sem a ciência é cega" - Albert Einstein

“Se uma escrivaninha desarrumada é sinal de mente desarrumada, o que significa uma escrivaninha vazia?”
Albert Einstein

“A luz é a sombra de Deus”

O estudo, a busca da verdade e da beleza são domínios em que nos é consentido sermos crianças por toda a vida.

Não sei como será a terceira guerra mundial, mas sei como será a quarta: com pedras e paus.

Deus é sutil , mas não é maldoso.

Se as pessoas são boas só por temerem o castigo e almejarem uma recompensa, então realmente somos um grupo muito desprezível.

Não há nada que seja maior evidência de insanidade do que fazer a mesma coisa dia após dia e esperar resultados diferentes.

"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." "What Life Means to Einstein: An Interview by George Sylvester Viereck," for the October 26, 1929 issue of The Saturday Evening Post. Extraída do site Citater fra...Albert Einstein

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed." Quoted on pg. 289 of Adventures of a Mathematician, by S. M. Ulam(Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1976). Apparently these words also occur somewhere in What I Believe (1930). Extraída do site

"Scientific research is based on the idea that everything that takes place is determined by laws of nature, and therefore this holds for the action of people. For this reason, a research scientist will hardly be inclined to believe that events could be i nfluenced by a prayer, i.e. by a wish addressed to a Supernatural Being." [Albert Einstein, 1936, responding to a child who wrote and asked if scientists pray. Source: "Albert Einstein: The Human Side", Edited by Helen Dukas and Banesh Hoffmann] Extraída do site

"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. ... I get most joy in life out of music."

Citater fra...Albert Einstein

"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own -- a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotisms." [Albert Einstein, obituary in New York Times, 19 April 1955] Extraída do site
Citater fra...Albert Einstein

"I cannot conceive of a God who rewards and punishes his creatures, or has a will of the kind that we experience in ourselves. Neither can I nor would I want to conceive of an individual that survives his physical death; let feeble souls, from fear or ab surd egoism, cherish such thoughts. I am satisfied with the mystery of the eternity of life and with the awareness and a glimpse of the marvelous structure of the existing world, together with the devoted striving to comprehend a portion, be it ever so tiny, of the Reason that manifests itself in nature."

Citater fra...Albert Einstein

"A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death."

Citater fra...Albert Einstein

"It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it."

"I cannot conceive of a personal God who would directly influence the actions of individuals, or would directly sit in judgment on creatures of his own creation. I cannot do this in spite of the fact that mechanistic causality has, to a certain extent, been placed in doubt by modern science. [He was speaking of Quantum Mechanics and the breaking down of determinism.] My religiosity consists in a humble admiratation of the infinitely superior spirit that reveals itself in the little that we, with our weak and transitory understanding, can comprehend of reality. Morality is of the highest importance -- but for us, not for God."

"To me the worst thing seems to be a school principally to work with methods of fear, force and artificial authority. Such treatment destroys the sound sentiments, the sincerity and the self-confidence of pupils and produces a subservient subject." Ideas and Opinions Extraída do site
Citater fra...Albert Einstein

"Science can only be created by those who are thoroughly imbued with the aspiration toward truth and understanding. This source of feeling, however, springs from the sphere of religion...The situation may be expressed by an image: science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind" --SCIENCE, PHILOSOPHY, AND RELIGION: A SYMPOSIUM, 1941.

"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly." --letter to Morris Raphael Cohen, professor emeritus of philosophy at the College of the City of New York, defending the controversial appointment of Bertrand Russell to a teaching position, March 19, 1940.
