In his lifetime, Einstein changed the world, describing the workings of reality better than anyone since Isaac Newton and revealing the capabilities of the atom bomb. In 1999, Time named him Person of the Century.
Here are 25 of Einstein's most telling quotes; each will take you inside the mind of the legend.

"Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth."
["The Curious History of Relativity"]

"Nature shows us only the tail of the lion. But there is no doubt in my mind that the lion belongs with it even if he cannot reveal himself to the eye all at once because of his huge dimension."
[Smithsonian, February 1979]
On politics Wikimedia Commons

"I am by heritage a Jew, by citizenship a Swiss, and by makeup a human being, and only a human being, without any special attachment to any state or national entity whatsoever."
["The Yale Book of Quotations"]
On certainty AP

"As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality."
[Address to Prussian Academy of Science, January 1921]
On humility

"As a human being, one has been endowed with just enough intelligence to be able to see clearly how utterly inadequate that intelligence is when confronted with what exists."
[Letter to Queen Elisabeth of Belgium, September 1932] On relativity

"When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute — and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity."
["The Yale Book of Quotations"]
On his growth

"It is true that my parents were worried because I began to speak fairly late, so that they even consulted a doctor. I can't say how old I was — but surely not less than three."
[Letter, 1954] On common sense

"Common sense is nothing more than a deposit of prejudices laid down in the mind before you reach eighteen."
["The Universe and Dr. Einstein"]
On success 

"If A is a success in life, then A equals X plus Y plus Z. Work is X; Y is play, and Z is keeping your mouth shut."
["The Yale Book of Quotations"]
On nationalis

"Nationalism is an infantile sickness. It is the measles of the human race."
["Albert Einstein, the Human Side"]
On mystery Baby Boomer Talk

"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that 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."
["The World As I See It," 1930]
On solitude

"My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities. I am truly a 'lone traveler' and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties, I have never lost a sense of distance and a need for solitude."
["The World As I See It," 1930]
On presentation Wikimedia commons

"If I were to start taking care of my grooming, I would no longer be my own self."
[Letter, December 1913]

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."
[Smithsonian, February 1979]
On motivation

"The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. Without the sense of kinship with men of like mind, without the occupation with the objective world, the eternally unattainable in the field of art and scientific endeavors, life would have seemed empty to me. The trite objects of human efforts — possessions, outward success, luxury — have always seemed to me contemptible."
["The World As I See It," 1930]
On education AP Photo

"The aim [of education] must be the training of independently acting and thinking individuals who, however, see in the service to the community their highest life problem."
[Address, October 1936]
On ambition

"Nothing truly valuable arises from ambition or from a mere sense of duty; it stems rather from love and devotion towards men and towards objective things."
[Letter, July 1947]
On learning

"Most teachers waste their time by asking questions that are intended to discover what a pupil does not know, whereas the true art of questioning is to discover what the pupil does know or is capable of knowing."
["Conversations with Albert Einstein," 1920] On thinking Wikimedia commons

"I very rarely think in words at all. A thought comes, and I may try to express in words afterwards."
["Productive Thinking," 1959]
On life AP

"A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future."
[Smithsonian, February 1979]
On curiosity 

"The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."
[Nova] On work ethic

"The state of mind which enables a man to do work of this kind ... is akin to that of the religious worshipper or the lover; the daily effort comes from no deliberate intention or program, but straight from the heart."
[Speech, 1918] On childhood AP

"The ordinary adult never gives a thought to space-time problems ... I, on the contrary, developed so slowly that I did not begin to wonder about space and time until I was an adult. I then delved more deeply into the problem than any other adult or child would have done."
[Letter, 1956]
On the role of science Wikimedia Commons

"One thing I have learned in a long life: That all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike — and yet it is the most precious thing we have."
["Albert Einstein: Creator and Rebel," 1972] On the hustle AP Photo/Str

"The only way to escape the corruptible effect of praise is to go on working."
[Smithsonian, February 1979]

home with the pot of milk. He boiled and

If I had my life to live over

Is the title of today's Inspirational message.

I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even
if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the “good”
living room and worried much less about the
dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the
I would have taken the time to listen to my
grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would never have insisted the car windows be
rolled up on a summer day because my hair
had just been teased and sprayed. I would have
burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose
before it melted in storage.
I would have sat on the lawn with my children
and not worried about grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while
watching TV – and more while watching life.
I would have shared more of the responsibility
carried by my husband.
I would have gone to bed when I was sick
instead of pretending the earth would go into a
holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.
I would never have bought anything just
because it was practical, wouldn’t show soil or
was guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away nine months of
pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment
and realized that the wonderment growing
inside me was the only chance in life to assist
God in a miracle.
When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would
never have said, “Later. Now go get washed up
for dinner.”
There would have been more “I love yous”…
more “I’m sorrys”…
But mostly, given another shot at life, I would
seize every minute…look at it and really see it…
live it…and never give it back.

with cancer.

The Fat Lady

Is the title of today's Inspirational message.

Hi! How are you?” The woman smiled as she
took the seat beside me. She had to lower
herself slowly, squeezing her ample bottom into
the seat, filling all available space.
Positioning herself comfortably, she plopped her
enormous arm on our common armrest. Her
immensity saturated the space around us,
shrinking me and my seat into insignificance.
I cringed and reclined towards the window.
She leaned towards me and repeated her
greeting in an upbeat, friendly voice. Her face
towered above my head, forcing me to turn to
look at her. “Hi,” I replied with obvious loathing.
I turned away to stare out the cabin window,
sulking silently about the long hours of
discomfort I was going to experience with this
monster beside me.
She nudged me with her meaty arm. “My name
is Laura. I’m from Britain. How about you?
“Malaysia,” I barked.
“I’m so sorry! Will you accept my heartfelt
apology? Come, shake my hand. If we’re going
to spend six hours side-by-side on this flight,
we’d better be friends, don’t you think?” A palm
waved in front of my face. I shook the hand
reluctantly, still silent.
Laura started a conversation with me, taking no
notice of my unfriendly reactions. She talked
excitedly about herself and her trip to Hong
Kong to see her friends. She rattled off a list of
things she was going to buy for her students in
the boarding school where she was teaching.
I gave her one-word answers to her questions
about me. Unperturbed by my coldness, she
nodded as she made appreciative comments to
my answers. Her voice was warm and caring.
She was considerate and obliging when we were
served drinks and meals, making sure that I had
room to manoeuvre in my seat. “I don’t want to
clobber you with my elephant size!” she said
with utmost sincerity.
To my surprise, her face which repulsed me
hours before, now opened into extraordinary
smiles, lively and calm at the same time. I
couldn’t help but let down my guard slowly.
Laura was an interesting conversationalist. She
was well read in many subjects from philosophy
to science. She turned a seemingly unimportant
subject into something to explore and
understand. Her comments were humorous and
inspirational. When our topic turned to cultures,
I was pleasantly surprised by her intelligent
comments and well-thought-out analysis.
During our conversation, Laura managed to
make every cabin crew who served us walk
away laughing at her jokes.
When a flight attendant was clearing our plates,
Laura cracked several jokes about her size. The
flight attendant roared with laughter as she
grabbed Laura’s hand, “You really make my
For the next few minutes, Laura listened
attentively and gave pointers to the flight
attendant’s weight problem. The grateful
attendant said before she rushed off, “I’ve got
to work. I’ll come back later and talk to you
about it.”
I asked Laura, “‘Have you ever thought about
losing some weight?”
“No. I’ve worked hard to get this way. Why
would I want to give it up?”
“You aren’t worried about cardiovascular
diseases that come with being overweight?”
“Not at all. You only get the diseases if you’re
worried about your weight all the time. You see
advertisements from slimming centres that say,
‘Liberate yourself from your extra baggage so
that you are free to be yourself.’ It’s rubbish!
You’re liberated only if you’re comfortable
about who you are, and what you look like any
time of the day and anytime of the year! Why
would I want to waste my time on slimming
regimes when I have so many other important
things to do and so many people to be friends
with? I eat healthily and walk regularly; I’m this
size because I am born to be big! There is more
to life than worrying about weight all day long.”
She sipped at her wine. “Besides, God gives me
so much happiness that I need a bigger body to
hold all of it! Why would I lose weight to lose
my happiness?” Taken aback by her reasoning, I
Laura continued. “Folks often see me as a fat
lady with big bosoms, big thighs and a big
bottom that no man would even bother to cast a
glance at. They see me as a slob. They think
I’m lazy and have no willpower. They’re
wrong.” She held up her glass to a passing
flight attendant. “More of this magnificent wine,
please.” She smiled sweetly at the attendant.
“Great service from your crew. May God bless
all of you.”
She turned to me, “I’m actually a slim person
inside. I’m so full of energy that people won’t
be able to keep up with me. This extra flesh is
here to slow me down, otherwise I’ll be running
everywhere chasing after men!”
“Do men chase after you?” I asked jokingly.
“Of course they do. I’m happily married but
men still keep proposing to me.
“Most of them have relationship problems and
they need someone to confide in. For some
reason, they like to talk to me. I think I should
have been a counsellor instead of a school
Laura paused before she said thoughtfully, “You
know, the relationship between men and women
is so complicated. Women worship men and
call them, ‘Honey’ until they find out they have
been lied to, and then they turn into bitter
gourds! Men love women so much that they
see them as their soul mates until they look at
their credit card bills, and then women become
devils with tridents!”
Laura’s enthralling conversation had turned the
flight into something thoroughly enjoyable. I
was also fascinated by the way people were
drawn to her. By the end of the flight, almost
half the cabin crew was standing near the aisle
by us, laughing and joking with Laura. The
passengers around us joined in the merry-
making too. Laura was the centre of attention,
filling the cabin with delightful warmth.
When we waved goodbye to each other at the
arrival lounge at Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Airport, I
watched her walking towards a big group of
adoring adults and kids. Cheers sounded as the
group hugged and kissed Laura. She turned
around and winked at me.
I was stunned, as the realisation set in: Laura
was the most beautiful woman I had ever met in
my life.
