Subtle is God, but malicious He is not.

[Raffiniert ist der Herr Gott, aber boshaft ist er nicht.]

Albert Einstein (1879-1955) German-American physicist
Remark at Princeton University (Apr. 1921)

Later inscribed in Fine Hall, Princeton University. Quoted in Einstein, ch. 14, R.W. Clark (1973). Einstein in 1946 gave a looser translation: "God is slick, but he ain’t mean."
