This year I begin to teach Stadistic. Next year I want to teach to informatic engineers the first course of mathematics and so on the next years.
I would like to know and share good links in english basically for this purpose.
Best Regards

Do you know a good one ?

Later i will try to insert the exe file. I don't know how to do but I will revise everything.
 :-*

So I have now some scripts to try . I choose Skwire for obvious reasons.
And goes well !
I have adapted in this way.
a) execute the wonderful Skwire script from an ahk script with my prefer hotkey (win + z  or control+shift+z )
b) use autotext from Phrase Express inside the skwire window script to select a group of folders of my election.

I put a screenshot to see this.

About the disfunctional script I say this : http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=45950.0

Finally I have found Fayax Folder Maker and recovered the old listas.exe in C language this last one.
Both goes well under windows 8.1
The first one seems abandoned from http://www.fe9.org/ , but is downloable from https://sourceforge....ts/fayaxfoldermaker/ . Really is not abandoned, but don't seems in develop and the program itself propose the above disfunctional link.
A good program to create folder trees is listas.exe. Just seems to me is deprecated and have dissapeared from web. Is portable and needs an ini file. I have adapted sometimes a bat file to launch from everywhere.
I upload the exe and one ini file to modify when needed. I usually use this script in creating subfolders for my projects.

In other cases I was using this script but now goes disfunctional under windows 8.1 so I have to change.
I will put my attemps to solve with external help (when not ignored) and the final solution adopted.

Best Regards

Understood.
It will take a very long time if I don't receive any help, but I will keep trying forever.
 :P

I am not a programmer, but I will keep trying and if I get an answer I will make it public afterwards as you suggest.  :-*

PureBasic ? a good beginning to try.

Edited :
PureBasic  seems to me a basic language adaptation with a new licensed software.

Software for create folders from an eligible list of folders

I refer explicitely to select one, two or more folders from a list selecting with the keys shift or control .

In web is usual to find scripts for create folders from a txt file, a csv file or an excel file. May be others too. (an ini file by example).

I have found some interesting software for similar purposes. One of them from Skwire . A program that works wonderfully under windows 8.1 at the present time.

Text 2 Folders Create folders based on a simple text file.

The main window shows the possibility to select a txt file from the pc or a configurable list .

This program don't show a list of eligible folder names. Yo have to select the list simply.

Another interesting program to create folders is XMD

Spoiler
XMD - eXtended Make Directory. (1.0.2)
A multipurpose tool for making directories.


OVERVIEW
========

XMD is a multi purpose tool for make directories in different ways: It allow
create several directories (or subdirectories) in one operation, directories
with names stored in a text file or from clipboard, sequential directories, also
is possible to use predefined variables (for time and misc.) and many many more.



KEY FEATURES
============
· Allow us create multiple directories in one step. (separates by pipeline | ).  i.e: test1|test2
· Allow us create directories with multiple levels deep. i.e: c:\test1\sub1\sub2.
· Allow create directories with absolute paths, relative paths and UNC paths.
· Allow the use of pseudo-variables (Time, Clipboard, misc.)
· New directories created, can be opened automatically in a new window from Explorer.
· List of (20) last created directories (folders).
· Custom templates can be defined.
· Custom suggested name by default for make new directories.
· Allow us to make directories from names in ClipBoard.
· Tool for make sequential directories (batch mode).
· Tool for load names from a text file.
· Command line parameters.
· Shell integration for files and folders.
· Portable (except for shell integration). USB sticks.
· Easy integration with the file manager Total Commander.


This program is downloable at the present time from a distributor. The programmer seems an abandoned web (José Manuel Breto) breto.net
I have tested the program under windows 8.1 and goes well.
But don't have an eligible list with multiple possible selection with the keys shift and control.

The rest of the software examined is easily founded in web by create folder from a txt file, csv file and so on....

I hope someone can find a functional and free version of creating folders from an eligible list.

Best Regards

May be some line giving the problem ?
In the original script...

ControlGetText, DesPath, Edit1, ahk_id %WinID%

Have you any alternative with the same target ?

Best Regards  :-*

Why Skwire script don't have any problem under my system ?

the user rights for the folder you wish to create the new sub-folders into
Shades I don't know how to operate your advice. How can I vary the options to make certain this is the issue ?
Best Regards

right click on the folder.  Properties.  Click the security tab.  Make sure that the user that you're running the script under has rights.
As I told before the user has total control or control total . Administrative privileges.

A screenshot may help me.

How can i vary the original script for not to be necessary have administrative rights ?
How can i vary the original script to go well without need of special configurations ?
I am the only user. I don't need certain types of securities.
 :-\

P.D. Besides obviously the script from skwire don't have those problems and is in AHK also. So I think is possible.

Another thing I can't understand is that a similar script goes well when I change the hotkey :

    #SingleInstance Force
     
        #ifWinActive ahk_class CabinetWClass
        {
; #y::  , quito la combinación windows+y a ver si logro que trote en do , control+shift+y
          ^+y::
          Gui, Destroy
          WinGet, WinID, ID, A
          Gui, +LastFound
          HWND := WinExist()
          ControlGetText, DesPath, ToolbarWindow323, ahk_id %WinID%
          StringMid,DesPath,DesPath,Instr(DesPath,": ") + 2
          Gui, Add, ListView, r10 NoSort vChosenName h300 w400, File Name (Path: %DesPath%)
             For A,B in {1:"Instrucciones.txt",2:"Instalar en mv.txt", 3:"Es mal portable. Instalar como no portable.txt", 4:"Instalado como

            LV_Add("",B)
            Gui, Add, Button, gChoose, Submit
          Gui, Show, h340 w420, Choose File Name
          Return
        }
     
        Choose:
        ControlGet, List, List, Selected, SysListView321, ahk_id %HWND%
        Gui, Destroy
        Loop, Parse, List, `n
        {
           If !FileExist(DesPath "\" A_LoopField)
              FileAppend,, %DesPath%\%A_LoopField%
        }
        Return

And is very similar to the conflictive one.  :-\

12
There is alternative to my script ?

I know the script Skwire and goes well under the present circunstances.
Text2Folders

The advantage I use of the conflictive script is that I can made multiple selections in the list of folders to be create with the shift or the control key.

Best Regards

You also need to check the user rights for the folder you wish to create the new sub-folders into. 'Run as administrator' functionality, as well as UAC, have a different impact in comparison between Windows 7 and 10. Windows 10 protects a lot of folders on the C:\ partition, more harshly then Windows 7 does. Windows 10 also gives me the impression that it protects more folders in this way than Windows 7 does.

It might be an option to add your user account to the list of users that is allowed to read and write in the desired folder (right-click on that folder, select Properties and go to tab Security to add your user account).

Something else to consider: The first (local) user account that you create in Windows is usually associated with two standard Windows user groups, called 'Users' and 'Administrators'. When accessing any folder on that computer, Windows will check what user and user group rights are configured at that folder. Windows will always default to the most restricted access to that folder, if a user is part of multiple user groups. This behavior is preferable for your own security.

Removing the associated user group 'Users' from your user account would help Windows making up its mind on how much access rights it should grant to your user account for any folder. Doing this on a single user PC is not a security problem. With a multi-user system it could be. When another user executes some malware which takes a peek at user group associations for all (local) accounts to find out which ones to target (first). 

I have control total
The UAC is disabled . Do you recommend me enable the service again in the registry ?


14
One singularity in my system is that the UAC is disabled to use my old CRM Goldmine 5.5.
May be this in relation ?????

15
AsusPortatil - 07_08_2018 , 18_50_59.png
insufficient user rights? Inside the folder where kalos tries to create the new empty subfolders, I mean. That seems to me the first thing to be looked at. Windows 10 is more strict about that kind of thing than Windows 7 is.
Really i am preocupied because seems to be nothing to modify in the script.
I have execute the script with the right click option "execute as administrator" but not result.
I am the only user and I think I am the administrator too.
How can I test my configuration to assume i am administrator ? In user accounts I am an administrator




16
The script creates one or several empty folders selecting from a list.

At the present moment I can't execute this.

17
I don't know why. Goes well under xp or 7, but not in windows 8.1 or ten.
Can you modify to go running ?
Best Regards  :P

Contro you need to restrict yourself to posting one or two questions at a time on the forum and give people a chance to discuss and answer your questions before you start posting new totally unrelated ones.
Otherwise you give the distinct appearance of someone not really interested in the answers to your questions, and that just frustrates people who might try to help.
I will not do any post for a couple of months and this will obviously terminate the public amonestation by that time.

I remember with FreeCommander to control the mobile structure and folders, but now I can't.
Perhaps I had the device rooted that time ?
To my surprise I get the folders with Windows Explorer simply. I can search too !.

What other tools do you recommend to take dominion from the pc of my mobile device ?

Living Room / Re: Chess?
« on: October 08, 2017, 09:06 AM »
We can't have everything.
But play only chess is a high price to pay.

So :

20171008_104945.jpg20171008_104956.jpg

Only two additional rules :

1. No limit time to play.
2. Excersize with weights while thinking.

I am reading entire books by now with this method.

"Mens sana in corpore sano"

To be honest, I am starting to be curious. :)

Still, there is that saying: "90% of any software related project takes 90% of the time, the remaining 10% takes the other 90% of the time..."

Pareto ?
 ;D

22
So there are a few things I could use help with:

  • I could use a few people to go through the entire new site and look for typos, spelling errors, and other ways text could get improved on any given page, and to report these suggestions to me.
  • I could use a few people to look for more general suggestions of ways the site appearance could be tweaked -- not looking for major change ideas at this point, just images or layouts that could be improved a bit.
  • I could use one dedicated and detail oriented person to help build the big redirect list mapping old urls to new urls.  This won't be a fun job but it's a critical one that will make all of the old urls automatically redirect to new ones.  This job basically involves taking a list of the few hundred old urls and finding where on the new site the best matching new page is, and then building a list of these pairs.
  • I could use a few people going through old (current website) and looking for pages that might have been missed and not reproduced on the new site.  This job has overlap with the one above.

Volunteers?
(The new cms is hidden behind a password protect, so I will give you password to access the site.)

I submerged twice weeks ago in the oldest posts and Renegade website seems down.

23
Sure I can help !

Just because I have the virtue going for the unexpected ways , wrong ways, posting inadequatedly and so on.

I am the ideal betatester !

My pacifism is an instinctive feeling, a feeling that possesses me because the murder of men is disgusting. My attitude is not derived from any intellectual theory but is based on my deepest antipathy to every kind of cruelty and hatred.
My passionate interest in social justice and social responsibility has always stood in curious contrast to a marked lack of desire for direct association with men and women. I am a horse for single harness, not cut out for tandem or team work. I have never belonged wholeheartedly to country or state, to my circle of friends, or even to my own family. These ties have always been accompanied by a vague aloofness, and the wish to withdraw into myself increases with the years. Such isolation is sometimes bitter, but I do not regret being cut off from the understanding and sympathy of other men. I lose something by it, to be sure, but I am compensated for it in being rendered independent of the customs, opinions, and prejudices of others, and am not tempted to rest my peace of mind upon such shifting foundations.
My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced freedom from the need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities. I gang my own gait and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties I have never lost an obstinate sense of detachment, of the need for solitude - a feeling which increases with the years. One is sharply conscious, yet without regret, of the limits to the possibility of mutual understanding and symphaty with one's fellow-creatures. Such a person no doubt loses something in the way of geniality and light-heartedness; on the other hand, he is largely independent of the opinions, habits, and judgements of his fellows and avoids the temptation to take his stand on such insecure foundations.
My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities.

Quien atribuye la crisis a sus fracasos y penurias, violenta su propio talento y respeta más los problemas que las soluciones, la verdadera crisis es la crisis de la incompetencia. El inconveniente de las personas y los paises es la pereza para encontrar las salidas y soluciones. Sin la crisis no hay desafíos, sin desafíos la vida es una rutina, una lenta agonía. Sin crisis no hay méritos. Es en la crisis donde aflora lo mejor de cada uno, porque sin crisis todo viento es caricia. \n\nHablar de crisis es promoverla, y callar en la crisis es exaltar el conformismo.

Nothing happens until something moves.
Nothing truly valuable arises from ambition or from a mere sense of duty; it stems rather from love and devotion towards men and towards objective things. [Letter, July 1947]
Nothing truly valuable can be achieved except by the unselfish cooperation of many individuals.
Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.
Numerous are the academic chairs, but rare are wise and noble teachers. Numerous and large are the lecture halls, but far from numerous the young people who genuinely thirst for truth and justice. Numerous are the wares that nature produces by the dozen, but her choice products are few. \nWe all know that, so why complain? Was it not always thus and will it not always thus remain? Certainly, and one must take what nature gives as one finds it. But there is also such a thing as a spirit of the times, an attitude of mind characteristic of a particular generation, which is passed on from individual to individual and gives its distinctive mark to a society. Each of us has to his little bit toward transforming this spirit of the times.
Of all the communities available to us, there is not one I would want to devote myself to except for the society of the true seekers, which has very few living members at any one time.

One had to cram all this stuff into one's mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year.
One may say the eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility.
One must divide one's time between politics and equations. But our equations are much more important to me, because politics is for the present, while our equations are for eternity.
One of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.

[...] and I think (like you, by the way) that theory cannot be fabricated out of the results of observation, but that it can only be invented.   \n[Letter to Karl Popper; 11 Sep 1939]”
[Capitalism] as it exists today is, in my opinion, the real source of evils. I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals. In such an economy, the means of production are owned by society itself and are utilized in a planned fashion.”
[The golden proportion] is a scale of proportions which makes the bad difficult [to produce] and the good easy.”
¡Triste época la nuestra! Es más fácil desintegrar un átomo que un prejuicio.”
¿Cómo debe comportarse el hombre si el Estado lo obliga a ciertas acciones que su conciencia considera injustas? La respuesta es fácil: dependes por completo de la sociedad en que vives. No tienes responsabilidad por esas acciones, cumplidas bajo coacción irresistible.”
¿Por qué debe temblar cada persona y cada país por la existencia de un país hostil? Porque cada uno busca su beneficio del momento, sin subordinarlo a la prosperidad y al bienestar de la comunidad. En todas partes se busca el camino hacia una existencia feliz y alegre por encima de la renuncia y la autolimitación.”
… there are no arbitrary constants ... nature is so constituted that it is possible logically to lay down such strongly determined laws that within these laws only rationally determined constants occur (not constants, therefore, whose numerical value could be changed without destroying the theory).”
A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.”
A conviction akin to religious feeling of the rationality or intelligibility of the world lies behind all scientific work of a high order.”
A desk, some pads, a pencil, and a large basket -- to hold all of mu mistakes.”
A foolish faith in authority is the worst enemy of truth.”
A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future.”
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.”
A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty - it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man.”
A large part of our attitude toward things is conditioned by opinions and emotions which we unconsciously absorb as children from our environment. In other words, it is tradition—besides inherited aptitudes and qualities—which makes us what we are. We but rarely reflect how relatively small as compared with the powerfu...   \nSee more”   \n, Essays in Humanism

Although I am a typical loner in my daily life, my awareness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice has prevented me from feelings of isolation.”
Although I have been prevented by outward circumstances from observing a strictly vegetarian diet, I have long been an adherent to the cause in principle. Besides agreeing with the aims of vegetarianism for aesthetic and moral reasons, it is my view that a vegetarian manner of living by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind.”

America is a large country and its people have so far not shown much interest in great international problems, among which the problem of disarmament occupies first place today. This must be changed, if only in America’s own interest. The last war has shown that there are no longer any barriers between the continents and that the destinies of all countries are closely interwoven. The people of this country must realize that they have a great responsibility in the sphere of international politics. The part of passive spectator is unworthy of this country and is bound in the end to lead to disaster all round.”

An observer who is sitting eccentrically on the disc K' is sensible of a force which acts outwards in a radial direction, and which would be interpreted as an effect of inertia (centrifugal force) by an observer who was at rest with respect to the original reference-body K. But the observer on the disc may regard his disc as a reference body which is at rest”; on the basis of the general principle of relativity he is justified in doing this. The force acting on himself, and in fact on all other bodies which are at rest relative to the disc, he regards as the effect of a gravitational field.”     \n, Relativity: The Special and General Theory w/Figures & Formulas

Bureaucracy is the death of all sound work.”
But science can only be created by those who are thoroughly imbued with the aspiration toward truth and understanding. This source of feeling, however, springs from the sphere of religion. To this there also belongs the faith in the possibility that the regulations valid for the world of existence are rational, that is, comprehensible to reason. I cannot conceive of a genuine scientist without that profound faith. The situation may be expressed by an image: science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”
But the scientist is possessed by the sense of universal causation. The future, to him, is every whit as necessary and determined as the past. There is nothing divine about morality; it is a purely human affair. His religious feeling takes the form of a rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural law, which reveals an intelligence of such superiority that, compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection. This feeling is the guiding principle of his life and work, in so far as he succeeds in keeping himself from the shackles of selfish desire. It is beyond question closely akin to that which has possessed the religious geniuses of all ages.”
But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people--first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies we are bound by the ties of sympathy.”
Certain it is that a conviction, akin to religious feeling, of the rationality or intelligibility of the world lies behind all scientific work of a higher order.... This firm belief, a belief bound up with deep feeling, in a superior mind that reveals itself in the world of experience, represents my conception of God.”

Common to all these types is the anthropomorphic character of their conception of God. In general, only individuals of exceptional endowments, and exceptionally high-minded communities, rise to any considerable extent above this level. But there is a third stage of religious experience which belongs to all of them, even though it is rarely found in a pure form: I shall call it cosmic religious feeling. It is very difficult to elucidate this feeling to anyone who is entirely without it, especially as there is no anthropomorphic conception of God corresponding to it. The individual feels the futility of human desires and aims and the sublimity and marvelous order which reveal themselves both in nature and in the world of thought. Individual existence impresses him as a sort of prison and he wants to experience the universe as a single significant whole. The beginnings of cosmic religious feeling already appear at an early stage of development, e.g., in many of the Psalms of David and in some of the Prophets. Buddhism, as we have learned especially from the wonderful writings of Schopenhauer, contains a much stronger element of this.”

Concepts that have proven useful in ordering things easily achieve such an authority over us that we forget their earthly origins and accept them as unalterable givens. Thus they come to be stamped as necessities of thought”, a priori givens”, etc. The path of scientific advance is often made impassable for a long time through such errors. For that reason, it is by no means an idle game if we become practiced in analyzing the long commonplace concepts and exhibiting those circumstances upon which their justification and usefulness depend, how they have grown up, individually, out of the givens of experience. By this means, their all-too-great authority will be broken. They will be removed if they cannot be properly legitimated, corrected if their correlation with given things be far too superfluous, replaced by others if a new system can be established that we prefer for whatever reason.”

During the youthful period of mankind's spiritual evolution human fantasy created gods in man's own image, who, by the operations of their will were supposed to determine, or at any rate to influence, the phenomenal world. Man sought to alter the disposition of these gods in his own favor by means of magic and prayer. The idea of God in the religions taught at present is a sublimation of that old concept of the gods. Its anthropomorphic character is shown, for instance, by the fact that men appeal to the Divine Being in prayers and plead for the fulfillment of their wishes. Nobody, certainly, will deny that the idea of the existence of an omnipotent, just, and omnibeneficent personal God is able to accord man solace, help, and guidance; also, by virtue of its simplicity it is accessible to the most undeveloped mind. But, on the other hand, there are decisive weaknesses attached to this idea in itself, which have been painfully felt since the beginning of history. That is, if this being is omnipotent, then every occurrence, including every human action, every human thought, and every human feeling and aspiration is also His work; how is it possible to think of holding men responsible for their deeds and thoughts before such an almighty Being? In giving out punishment and rewards He would to a certain extent be passing judgment on Himself. How can this be combined with the goodness and righteousness ascribed to Him?   \n(Albert Einstein, Science, Philosophy, and Religion, A 1934 Symposium published by the Conference on Science, Philosophy and Religion in Their Relation to the Democratic Way of Life, Inc., New York, 1941; from Einstein's Out of My Later Years, Westport, Connecticut: Greenwood Press, 1970, pp. 26-27.)”

Even on the most solemn occasions I got away without wearing socks and hid that lack of civilization in high boots”
Even then, a new branch of mythic thought had already grown strong, one not religious in nature but no less perilous to mankind -- exaggerated nationalism. Half a century has shown that this new adversary is so strong that it places in question man's very survival. It is too early for the present-day historian to write about this problem, but it is to be hoped that one will survive who can undertake the task at a later date.”       \n, Man and His Gods
Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.”
Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble.”
Every theory is killed sooner or later in that way. But if the theory has good in it, that good is embodied and continued in the next theory.”

Everything has changed. . . except the way we think. The aim [of education] must be the training of independently acting and thinking individuals, who, however, see in the service of community their highest life problems”
Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for the insect, as well as for the star. Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.”
Everything is energy and that's all there is. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
Everything is energy.”
Everything must be made as simple as possible. But not simpler.”
Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.”
Everything that the human race has done and thought is concerned with the satisfaction of deeply felt needs and the assuagement of pain. One has to keep this constantly in mind if one wishes to understand spiritual movements and their development. Feeling and longing are the motive force behind all human endeavor and human creation, in however exalted a guise the latter may present themselves to us.”
Evil is the absence of God.”

For a scientist, altering your doctrines when the facts change is not a sign of weakness.”
For an idea that does not first seem insane, there is no hope.”
For any one who is pervaded with the sense of causal law in all that happens, who accepts in real earnest the assumption of causality, the idea of a Being who interferes with the sequence of events in the world is absolutely impossible. Neither the religion of fear nor the social-moral religion can have any hold on him.”

For us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one.”
For while religion prescribes brotherly love in the relations among the individuals and groups, the actual spectacle more resembles a battlefield than an orchestra. Everywhere, in economic as well as in political life, the guiding principle is one of ruthless striving for success at the expense of one's fellow. men. This competitive spirit prevails even in school and, destroying all feelings of human fraternity and cooperation, conceives of achievement not as derived from the love for productive and thoughtful work, but as springing from personal ambition and fear of rejection.”
Force always attracts men of low morality.”
From discord, find Harmony.”
From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that we are here for the sake of each other - above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.”

Gandhi, the greatest political genius of our time, has pointed the way. He was shown of what sacrifices people are capable once they have found the right way. His work for the liberation of India is a living testimony to the fact that a will governed by firm conviction is stronger than a seemingly invincible material power.”
Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth. (said of Mahatma Gandhi)”
Genius is 1% talent and 99% percent hard work...”
God always takes the simplest way.”
God does not play dice with the universe.”   , The Born-Einstein Letters 1916-55
God does not play dice”
God is subtle but he is not malicious.”
Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.”
Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.”
Great spirits have always encountered opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.”

Growth comes through analogy; through seeing how things connect, rather than only seeing how they might be different.”

He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed. Albert Einstein”
He who joyfully marches to music rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.”
Here in America all pay lip service to the first, optimistic, tendency. Nevertheless, the second group is strongly represented. It appears on the scene everywhere, though for the most part it hides its true nature. Its aim is political and spiritual dominion over the people by a minority, by the circuitous route of control over the means of production. Its proponents have already tried to utilize the weapon of anti-Semitism as well as of hostility to various other groups. They will repeat the attempt in times to come. So far all such tendencies have failed because of the people’s sound political instinct. And so it will remain in the future, if we cling to the rule: Beware of flatterers, especially when they come preaching hatred.”
Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism -how passionately I hate them!”
His historical picture closes with the end of the nineteenth century, and with good reason. By that time it seemed that the influence of these mythic, authoritatively anchored forces which can be denoted as religious, had been reduced to a tolerable level in spite of all the persisting inertia and hypocrisy.
Honestly, I cannot understand what people mean when they talk about the freedom of the human will. I have a feeling, for instance, that I will something or other; but what relation this has with freedom I cannot understand at all. I feel that I will to light my pipe and I do it; but how can I connect this up with the idea of freedom? What is behind the act of willing to light the pipe? Another act of willing? Schopenhauer once said: Der Mensch kann was er will; er kann aber nicht wollen was er will (Man can do what he will but he cannot will what he wills).”
Hope that justice will be done to those brave men who stood up for their convictions.”
Hours before his death in 1955 from a ruptured abdominal aortic ayeurysm, Albert Einstein's doctors proposed trying a new and unproven surgery as a final option for extending his life. Einstein refused. "I have done my share," he said. "It is time to go. I will do it elegantly.”
How can cosmic religious feeling be communicated from one person to another, if it can give rise to no definite notion of a God and no theology? In my view, it is the most important function of art and science to awaken this feeling and keep it alive in those who are receptive to it.”
How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought independent of experience, is so admirably appropriate to the objects of reality?”
How did it come to pass that I was the one to develop the theory of relativity? The reason, I think, is that a normal adult never stops to think about problems of space and time. These are things which he has thought of as a child. But my intellectual development was retarded, as a result of which I began to wonder about space and time only when I had already grown up. Naturally I could go deeper into the problem than a child with normal abilities.”
How does it happen that a properly endowed natural scientist comes to concern himself with epistemology? Is there no more valuable work in his specialty? I hear many of my colleagues saying, and I sense it from many more, that they feel this way. I cannot share this sentiment. When I think about the ablest students whom I have encountered in my teaching, that is, those who distinguish themselves by their independence of judgment and not merely their quick-wittedness, I can affirm that they had a vigorous interest in epistemology. They happily began discussions about the goals and methods of science, and they showed unequivocally, through their tenacity in defending their views, that the subject seemed important to them. Indeed, one should not be surprised at this.”
How I wish that somewhere there existed an island for those who are wise and of good will.”
How many people are trapped in their everyday habits: part numb, part frightened, part indifferent? To have a better life we must keep choosing how we're living.”
How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.”
