Einstein quote
From "A Declaration" by A. Einstein

Athirst for knowledge, a love of justice bordering on fanaticism and a need for personal independence … these are the constants in the traditions of the Jewish people which make me consider my belonging to it a gift of destiny.

Those who today, contrary to the ideals of reason and individual liberty, seek by brute force to impose mindless state-slavery, rightly see us as unforgiving foes.

History has burdened us with a difficult struggle, but as long as we remain true servants of truth, of justice and of liberty, we shall continue to exist as a people—the most ancient of all—and continue to create, through productive work, values for the betterment of mankind.

—A. Einstein
