Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, givin birth to evolution.
German-born theoretical physicist. Developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). Was a big influence in the philosophy of science. Best known in popular culture for his mass–energy equivalence formula
