My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.

Albert Einstein (1879-1955) German-American physicist
Interview with Peter Bucky

Quoted in Einstein's obituary, New York Times (18 Apr 1955) and in Barnett, The Universe and Dr. Einstein (1953)
