Quotes: Churchill; Einstein; Pasteur

"World History Quotes"

Here are selections:
  • Winston Churchill
    • "The truth is incontrovertible. Panic may resent it, ignorance may deride it, malice may distort it, but there it is."
    • "It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more."
    • "The empires of the future are the empires of the mind."
  • Albert Einstein
    • "We see a universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws, but only dimly understand these laws."
    • "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler."
    • "The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible."
  • Louis Pasteur
    • "Science brings men nearer to God."
    • "In the fields of observation chance favors only the prepared mind."
    • "One does not ask of one who suffers: What is your country and what is your religion? One merely says: You suffer, that is enough for me."
    • "Do not let yourself be tainted with a barren skepticism."
