  7. Phrases • Time and space are relative. • Matter tells space how to bend and space tells matter how to move • God does not play dice

  8. Quotes • Academic Freedom – “the right to search for truth and to publish and teach what one holds to be true.” • “Mahatma Gandhi's life achievement stands unique in political history. He has invented a completely new and humane means for the liberation war of an oppressed country, and practised it with greatest energy and devotion. The moral influence he had on the conciously thinking human being of the entire civilized world will probably be much more lasting than it seems in our time with its overestimation of brutal violent forces. Because lasting will only be the work of such statesmen who wake up and strengthen the moral power of their people through their example and educational works.We may all be happy and grateful that destiny gifted us with such an enlightened contemporary, a role model for the generations to come.” 1931 • “If I had known they were going to do this, I would have become a shoemaker.” - 1945
