Albert Einstein
US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)

I don't think Albert would have said that, these days - although he is right about the value of using our own brain and avoiding lazy habits of thinking, he would be far more woried by the cancerous trivia of Facebook and Twitter, which encourages far worse and more insidious habits of mind
