Albert Einstein
Einstein: Image and Impact
Exhibit on Albert Einstein, by the American Institute of Physics.
"I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves -this critical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty. The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. (...) The trite objects of human efforts -possessions, outward success, luxury- have always seemed to me contemptible." (Einstein, The World As I See It).
