I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.
I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.
I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.
I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation and is but a reflection of human frailty.
I do not believe in immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern with no superhuman authority behind it.
I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil.
I do not believe that civilization will be wiped out in a war fought with the atomic bomb. Perhaps two-thirds of the people of the earth will be killed.
I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.
I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.
I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would suffice.
Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism – how passionately I hate them!
I am a deeply religious nonbeliever – this is a somewhat new kind of religion.
Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
God always takes the simplest way.
God does not play dice.
God may be subtle, but he isn’t plain mean.
