I've seen quotes by Einstein along the lines that he was well aware he didn't have all the answers, that his knowledge related to the workings of the universe was quite limited. Having trouble re-finding these quotes - looking to get pointed toward them.

Thanks.

I guess there are quite a few. E.g.
Imagination is more important than knowledge, because knowledge is limited.
Some men strive lifelong to understand the nature of a woman. Others deal with less difficult things such as B. the theory of relativity.
Two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, but I'm not sure about the universe yet.
Problems can never be solved with the same way of thinking that created them.
Since mathematicians have assaulted the Theory of Relativity, I do not understand it anymore.
Do not worry about your difficulties with math. I can ensure you, mine are even bigger.
and so on, all related to knowledge - more or less.

Maybe you should consider a book about it:

Albert Einstein was a prolific and imo understandable writer. Most of his publications have been translated to standard English. Here is a partial list of titles in several languages.
