« Why I won't vote, and why I will give more to charity - How I came to believe in God »

"I sometimes ask myself, how did it come that I was the one to develop the Theory of Relativity? The reason, I think, is that a normal adult never stops to think abour problems of space and time. These are things which he has thought of as a child. But my intellectual development was retarded, as a result of which I began to wonder about space and time only when I had already grown up. Naturally, I could go deeper into the problem than a child..."

- Einstein (quote found in Robert Rosen's Life Itself)
