It means absolutely nothing to nobody.
Nothing I have to say.
All I can say is that I tried.
It's like talking to a tree.
Or maybe a dog or something.
Zero response or acknowledgement or comprehension.
Not one time.
- Albert Einstein
- I received your letter of June 10th. I have never talked to a Jesuit priest in my life and I am astonished by the audacity to tell such lies about me. From the viewpoint of a Jesuit priest I am, of course, and have always been an atheist.
- Letter to Guy H. Raner Jr. (2 July 1945), responding to a rumor that a Jesuit priest had caused Einstein to convert to Christianity, quoted in an article by Michael R. Gilmore in Skeptic magazine, Vol. 5, No. 2 (1997)
- There is separation of colored people from white people in the United States. That separation is not a disease of colored people. It is a disease of white people. I do not intend to be quiet about it.
- From a speech given on May 3, 1946 at Lincoln University, where he was receiving an honorary degree, as reported in the 11 May 1946 edition of the Baltimore Afro-American.
- Our world faces a crisis as yet unperceived by those possessing power to make great decisions for good or evil. The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.

Albert Einstein and Mark Twain are my inspirations.
They and my grandchildren.
My grandchildren first.
For them I carry on.
Our children are the reason for our existence.
With them we thrive.
Without them we exist.
