Einstein Comments on Celebration

Download PDF for this date

Abert Einstein today expressed through the Associated Press his pleasure over the mass meeting held in his honor tonight in New York, by the following message to the audience:

You meet to celebrate a myth bearing my name. This proves, however, that in our times, amid all the ill-omened striving after power and luxury, there still lives an appreciation for the eternal aims of the human spirit.

That makes me happy.

ALBERT EINSTEIN.
