Albert Einstein Quote

Philosophy is like a mother who gave birth to and endowed all the other sciences. Therefore, one should not scorn her in her nakedness and poverty, but should hope, rather, that part of her Don Quixote ideal will live on in her children so that they do not sink into philistinism.


(28 September 1932), p. 106 - Albert Einstein: The Human Side (1979)
