Quote from Albert Einstein: “I often think in music.”



“If I was not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. … I cannot tell if I would have done any creative work of importance in music, but I do know that I get most joy in life out of my violin.”

– Albert Einstein

Black and white photograph of Albert Einstein standing in front of a chalkboard with a circle drawn on it, holding a pipe in his right hand. He is looking directly at the camera with a subtle smile, his hair is characteristically unruly, and he wears a dark suit with a light-colored shirt and a tie.
