想像力

語錄编辑

  • 想像力遠比知識更重要。因知識有限,想像則无限,它包含一切,推动着进步,為人类进化的源泉。--愛因斯坦
    • 原文:Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.
  • 在我看來,現在有許多人—甚至包括科學家—似乎都只是見樹不見林。關於歷史哲學背景的知識,可以提供給那些大部份正受到當代偏頗觀念所左右的科學家們一種不隨波逐流的獨立性。這種由哲學的洞察力所創造的獨立性,依我來看,正是一個工匠或專家,與一個真正的真理追尋者之間,最大的區別。--愛因斯坦
  • 在人類生活的壯麗行列中,我覺得真正可貴的,不是政治上的國家,而是有創造性的、有感情的個人,是人格;只有個人才能創造出高尚的和卓越的東西,而群眾本身在思想上總是遲鈍的,在感覺上也是遲鈍的。--愛因斯坦
    • 原文:So many people today — and even professional scientists — seem to me like someone who has seen thousands of trees but has never seen a forest. A knowledge of the historic and philosophical background gives that kind of independence from prejudices of his generation from which most scientists are suffering. This independence created by philosophical insight is — in my opinion — the mark of distinction between a mere artisan or specialist and a real seeker after truth.

    • 當他聽到他的一個學生放棄數學去研讀
