“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.” Einstein quote from ‘What Life Means to Einstein: An Interview by George Sylvester Viereck,’ for the October 26, 1929 issue of The Saturday Evening Post.
Albert Einstein (1879-1955) made great contributions in physics which are vastly influencing the quality of our lives today.
In science, he maintained that while we understand the world in terms of reason, the way a theory is accepted is through the criteria of aesthetics.
Einstein’s personality was as impressive as his scientific work. Personal responsibility was the basis of his passionate and active interest in social justice. He was committed to a world of simplicity and harmony.
He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921.
