Albert Einstein's Quotes:

All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. 

Imagination is more important than knowledge. 

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. 

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love. 

Before God we are all equally wise - and equally foolish. 

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

The release of atomic energy has not created a new problem. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one.

It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer. 

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.   

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. 

Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. 

Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either. 

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it. 

A question that sometimes drives me lazy: am I or are the others crazy?

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.

The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.

Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.

Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.

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

Not everything that can be counted counts. Not everything that counts can be counted.

Medium:        Pencil (Black), 6H,4H,4B,2B

Theme Description:

Sai Baba of Shirdi (September 28, 1838 – October 15, 1918), also known as Shirdi Sai Baba was an Indian guru, yogi, and fakir who is regarded by his Hindu and Muslim devotees as a saint. Many Hindu devotees – including Hemadpant, who wrote the famous Shri Sai Satcharitra – consider him an incarnation of Lord Krishna while other devotees consider him as an incarnation of Lord Dattatreya.Saivites or worshipers of Lord Shiva consider Shirdi Sai, a formest siva-natha (Saivite Saint), or a Saint who has earned the most benevolent and auspicious grace of Lord Shiva the great god head of the holy trinity in Hinduism. Many devotees believe that he was a Satguru, an enlightened Sufi Pir, or a Qutub. No verifiable information is available regarding Sai Baba's birth and place of birth,
Sai Baba's real name is unknown. The name "Sai" was given to him upon his arrival at Shirdi, a town in the west-Indian state of Maharashtra. Mahalsapati, a local temple priest, recognized him as a Muslim saint and greeted him with the words 'Ya Sai!', meaning 'Welcome Sai!'. Sai orSayi is a Persian title given to Sufi saints, meaning 'poor one' However Sāī may also refer to the Sanskrit term "Sakshat Eshwar" or thedivine. The honorific "Baba" means "father; grandfather; old man; sir" in Indo-Aryan languages. Thus Sai Baba denotes "holy father", "saintly father" or "poor old man" (Reference)

Sai Baba's Quotes:

All action results from thought, so it is thoughts that matter. 

Man learns through experience, and the spiritual path is full of different kinds of experiences. He will encounter many difficulties and obstacles, and they are the very experiences he needs to 
encourage and complete the cleansing process. 

The life ahead can only be glorious if you learn to live in total harmony with the Lord. 

Man seeks to change the foods available in nature to suit his tastes, thereby putting an end to the very essence of life contained in them.

Do not be misled by what you see around you, or be influenced by what you see. You live in a world which is a playground of illusion, full of false paths, false values and false ideals. But you are not part of that world. 

What matters is to live in the present, live now, for every moment is now. It is your thoughts and acts of the moment that create your future. The outline of your future path already exists, for you created its pattern by your past. 

Let love flow so that it cleanses the world. Then man can live in peace, instead of the state of turmoil he has created through his past ways of life, with all those material interests and earthly ambitions.

Mahatma Gandhi's Quotes:

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world.

It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence. 

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony

Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding. 

Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth. 

An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. 

An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. 

A beauty is a woman you notice; a charmer is one who notices you. 
Adlai E. Stevenson 

All beautiful things may not be good, but good things are always beautiful.

You can see beauty in everything, if you want because it is in your heart.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman rows with the passing years. 
Audrey Hepburn
