Einstein and Mystery

Few people were as profound about the ultimate mysteries as was Albert Einstein. Here's a sampling of his thoughts:

"People like you and I, though mortal of course like everyone else, do not grow old no matter how long we live...[We] never cease to stand like curious children before the great mystery into which we were born."

--Albert Einstein (in a letter to Otto Juliusburger)

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious."

"The future is an unknown, but a somewhat predictable unknown. To look to the future we must first look back upon the past. That is where the seeds of the future were planted. I never think of the future. It comes soon enough."
