lyrics

“I believe the most important mission of the state is to protect the individual and make it possible for him to develop into a creative personality.”
“Freedom is the lifeblood of creativity, the development of science and the creative activities of the spirit requires a freedom that consists in the independence of thought from the restrictions of authoritarian and social prejudice.”

“Nationalism is an infantile disease
The measles of mankind”
“Nationalism is an infantile disease
The measles of mankind”
“Nationalism is an infantile disease
The measles of mankind”
“Nationalism is an infantile disease
The measles of mankind”
“Violence breeds violence”
“Violence breeds violence”
“Violence breeds violence”
“Liberty is the necessary foundation for all true values.”

“The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer stand wrapped in awe is as good as dead, a snuffed out candle.”

Einstein stand up
Einstein stand up
Einstein stand up
Up, take us up

“Try and penetrate with our limited minds the secrets of nature and you will find behind all the discernable laws and connections there remains something intangible, inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am in fact religious.”
“To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is something that our minds cannot grasp. Whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirect. This is religiousness.”
