  1. Here are some insightful quotes I like… Lemme know if you like them:

    “Imagination is more important than knowledge.

    “I, at any rate, am convinced that He (God) doesn’t
    throw dice.”

    “The important matter is not to stop questioning; interest
    has its own reason for existing.”

    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about
    the universe.”

    “Falling in love isn’t at all the most ignorant thing that
    people do — but gravitation cannot be held responsible for it.”

    “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.

    “Anyone whho has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

    “Try not to become a man of success, but rather attempt to become a man of worth”
