I love Einstein – I even have a (smelly) rubber mask of his in a cupboard should I feel the need to dress up as him. This list of quotes starts with my favourite ever from him but all can be applied to writing and life. Pure genius.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
“Paper is to write things down that we need to remember. Our brains are used to think.”
“The important thing is not to stop questioning… Never lose a holy curiosity.”
“The most precious things in life are not those you get for money.”
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
