"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."

-Albert Einstein

Einstein has dozens of good quotes but I always thought that one to be one of his dumbest. it's not as clever as it sounds and it doesn't really say anything

 

 

 

"It is a waste of energy to be angry with a man who behaves badly, just as it is to be angry with a car that won't go."

 

"Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time"

 

-Bertrand Russel

 

 

"Do your own shit man, do your own shit" - Garth

 

 

"So you think that money is the root of all evil. Have you ever asked what is the root of all money? "

 

-Ayn Rand
