And what I particularly appreciate is his attitude towards cycling. There are many quotes about life and cycling related to Albert Einstein. I'm not sure whether they are actually originally his, but they're good anyhow.
"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving."
"I thought of that while riding my bicycle."
(on the theory of relativity)
More interesting quotations about cycling from various people here and on thinkexist. Any quotations of famous people you particularly like?
I also like what Christian Ude (mayor of Munich, Germany) says about cyclists:
"Können wir Leute in Spitzenpositionen brauchen, die zu ängstlich sind, eine Innenstadt radelnd zu durchqueren? Natürlich nicht. Lasst endlich die Radler ran!"He also wrote a book called "Stadtradeln" (Citycycling). Something I want to read in the near future.
"Do we want people in leading positions that are too scared to cross a city center on a bicycle? Of course not. Let cyclists get at it!"
