World is Comprehensible

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.

The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible.
—Albert Einstein

Dr. Albert Einstein was born on this day in 1879 at Ulm, Wuerttemberg, Germany. He died on April 18, 1955 at Princeton, New Jersey.

Holy Curiosity

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.
It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
---Albert Einstein (attributed)
