The Humor of Albert Einstein
Okay, we’ll grant you that Albert Einstein didn’t become famous for his humor, but rather his dogged persistence in discovering scientific laws and principles. If we believe that attitude is everything, then it would also behoove us to study his attitude towards research, physics, and life itself. While engaged in serious pursuits, Einstein kept the mood light and refreshing, and this is probably one of the reasons he was so successful. He was having great fun with his work and while he gave serious attention to it, he didn’t take himself so seriously. Enjoy!
“Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.” – Albert Einstein
“When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity.” – Albert Einstein
“The faster you go, the shorter you are.” – Albert Einstein
“Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.” – Albert Einstein
“The hardest thing to understand in the world is the income tax.” – Albert Einstein

“A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?” – Albert Einstein

“The devil has put a penalty on all things we enjoy in life. Either we suffer in health or we suffer in soul or we get fat.” – Albert Einstein
As we go about the serious nature of our mission in life, we would do well to keep in mind that having fun along the way is what it’s all about. We handle troubling problems better when we find humor in all we do, and we allow our creativity to blossom when the air about us is light and carefree. We thank Albert Einstein for passing along this idea, for it is one of his most profound observations.
