Quotes and voices

Texts by Dr. Antonio Moreno González

Most publications on Einstein and his work are filled with quotes by and about him. The reliability of everything that has been published is at the very least questionable. The publication of his complete works, The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein , begun in 1976 under the supervision of John Stachel, offers a faithful look at a figure who for different reasons has been misinterpreted by different authors. One of the most reliable collections of quotations is Alice Calaprice's The Quotable Einstein (Princeton University Press, 1996), and the biographies written by those who worked with him or formed part of his closest circles. All the quotations given on the following pages have been taken from these sources.
