Quote of the Day (Albert Einstein)

“Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth” (Albert Einstein).

These words were apparently spoken by Einstein about Gandhi. Can anyone help me find the source of the quotation? Last night we showed the famous Gandhi movie for students taking the South Asian Civilizations course that I and a few other professors teach. I hope to post some thoughts about Gandhi and Jesus sometime soon.

    I tried to find the citation with no luck. I could have sworn it came from “The World As I see It” . . . but I can’t find it so far. I did, however, find some other related very cool Eisntein quotes, which I posted here. Interestingly, some of the shorter fragments actually touch on subjects that you have recently touched on.peaceÓ
