    Hi John,
    Do you have a specific source for this quote? It certainly sounds like something Einstein might have said, but there’s so many fake quotes attributed to him that it would help to know where and when he made that statement

    • John Zimmer says:

      Hi Oliver. I have previously written about the importance of getting quotes cited properly. Having said that, I am far from immune from making (good faith) mistakes. I cannot remember where I found this quote, so if you are able to run it to ground, please let me know. Thanks!
