The Mysterious

Einstein wrote:

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.”

  1. A great post- just tweeted it to my Twitter folks.

  2. Einstein would have made a great ancient Greek philosopher, he verges on the metaphysical.

  3. Reblogged this on shafiqah1 and commented:
    There is always more to know as Socrates said, and I am paraphrasing, the beginning of knowledge comes when we become aware that we currently know nothing. Science makes you realize how much more there is to know 😀

    • Thanx for the re blog! I agree there is much to learn. From Socrates, Einstein and anyone who had something to say. The key is to filter out the rubbish and concentrate on what is valuable to us. Thank you for connecting.
      🙂

  4. Nice quote. There is much evidence that Einstein was a wise man as well as a great scientist.
