26 GENIUS Einstein Quotes That Will Instantly Make You Wiser

Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who’s mind refused to conform without exploration.

He developed the general theory of relativity (one of the two pillars of modern physics) and created the mass—energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed “the world’s most famous equation”).

Because of his quest to push boundaries, Einstein understood what it meant to change perspectives. From that, his quips of wisdom are some of the most insightful and priceless ever recorded.

Here are 26 of the most compelling quotes by the great Albert Einstein:
