Einstein

The world is a dangerous place...

"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing."

-- Albert Einstein

The restriction of knowledge...

"It is not enough for a handful of experts to attempt the solution of a problem, to solve it and then to apply it. The restriction of knowledge to an elite group destroys the spirit of society and leads to its intellectual impoverishment."

-- Albert Einstein

Cotton fields and sweatshops

"I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein's brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops."

-- Steven Jay Gould
