Albert Einstein, “The Expanded Quotable Einstein”, Princeton University, page 214.

“IN VIEW OF SUCH HARMONY IN THE COSMOS WHICH I, WITH MY LIMITED HUMAN MIND, AM ABLE TO RECOGNIZE, THERE ARE YET PEOPLE WHO SAY THERE IS NO GOD. BUT WHAT REALLY MAKES ME ANGRY IS THAT THEY QUOTE ME FOR THE SUPPORT OF SUCH VIEWS.”

(The following comes from "What Life Means to Einstein: An Interview by George Sylvester Viereck,"The Saturday Evening Post, Oct. 26, 1929, p. 17. The questions are posed by Viereck; the reply to each is by Einstein.)

Sylvester Viereck: "To what extent are you influenced by Christianity?"

Albert Einstein: "As a child, I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene."

"Have you read Emil Ludwig's book on Jesus?

"Emil Ludwig's Jesus," replied Einstein, "is shallow. Jesus is too colossal for the pen of phrasemongers, however artful. No man can dispose of Christianity with a bon mot."

"You accept the historical existence of Jesus?"

"Unquestionably. No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life. How different, for instance, is the impression which we receive from an account of legendary heroes of antiquity like Theseus. Theseus and other heroes of his type lack the authentic vitality of Jesus."

"Ludwig Lewisohn, in one of his recent books, claims that many of the sayings of Jesus paraphrase the sayings of other prophets."

"No man," Einstein replied, "can deny the fact that Jesus existed, nor that his sayings are beautiful. Even if some them have been said before, no one has expressed them so divinely as he."
