The most beautiful and most profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the soul of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend in only the most primitive form. The cosmic religious experience is the strongest and oldest mainspring of scientific research.
My religion exists of a humble admiration of the inimitable superior spirit who reveals Himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of the superior reasoning power which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe forms my idea of God.
Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.
