I’ve come across a lot of quotes attributed to Albert Einstein. Many I’m sure are his, but some aren’t. Einstein isn’t unique in this regard, this happens to other people, too. Some are accidents, but others I believe are the result of people trying to spread a message and using someone famous to give their idea credibility.
With that in mind, I created the following non-serious Albert Einstein image quote. (By the way, he died years before the internet was created.)
Fake Einstein Quote
There are two excellent books that showcase the photos of legendary Canadian photgrapher Yousuf Karsh. Karsh was famous for his portraits and during the 20th century, the rich and famous flocked to sit in front of his camera. Karsh carefully studied his subjects before meeting them, so he was able to ask them some very intelligent and probing questions. Below are two quotes I like.
From the book “Karsh”:
“Sometimes I wonder,” mused the creator of exalted adventure story, “how all those who do not write, compose or paint… can manage to escape the madness which is inherent in the human situation.”
From the book “Yousuf Karsh : Regarding Heroes”:
Knowing him to be an accomplished violinst, I [Karsh] turned the conversation, and asked if there were any connection between music and mathematics. “In art,” he said, “and in the higher ranges of science, there is a feeling of harmony which underlies all endeavour. There is no true greatness in art or science without that sense of harmony. He who lacks it can never be more than a great technician in either field.”
