Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in point of fact, religious.

Albert Einstein (1879-1955) German-American physicist
Remark (Winter 1927)

Response to atheist Alfred Kerr's dinner party query, "I hear that you are supposed to be deeply religious." Quoted in The Diary of a Cosmopolitan by H. G. Kessler (1971).
