Quote of the Day

"The pursuit of knowledge for its own sake, an almost fanatical love of justice and the desire for personal independance - these are the features of the Jewish tradition which make me thank my lucky stars that I belong to it" - Albert Einstein.

Me too, Einstein. Me too.

Do you think Einstein actually said that, including the "I thank my lucky stars" part? Sounds suspicious.

JS: The quote came from a book - "Ideas and Opinions" which I own. Each letter and essay contains the original publication information. If you like I can post that info in this comment section. Thank you for stopping by.

What a terrific quote. I'm glad Einstein said it. What other religion or way of life stresses the pursuit of truth like Judaism?
Great blog!
