Some qutoes

Imagination is more important than knowledge. 

The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources. 

The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives. 

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. 

Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters. 

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. 

Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them. 

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. 

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. 

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. 

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
-Albert Einstein

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

Be the change you wish to see in the world. 

Mohandas Gandhi

You obviously don't know where the bar should be, and you're only going to do a disservice by putting it anywhere.
