Isn’t it strange that I who have written only unpopular books should be such a popular fellow. Chirology may be one of the vital sciences of the future. ~ Albert Einstein (“Seeing into the Future” ~ Harvey Day) I hate crowds and making speeches. I hate facing cameras and having to answer to a crossfire of questions. Why popular fancy should seize upon me, a scientist, dealing in abstract things and happy if left alone, is a manifestation of mass psychology that is beyond me. I am neither especially clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious. The ideals that have lighted my way and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty and Truth. The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. When his wife asked him to change clothes to meet the German Ambassador: “they want to see me, here I am. If they want to see my clothes, open my closet and show them my suits.
