    I cant remember was was it Einstein who said something along the lines of "my politics will last a lifetime whereas my equations will last forever" when decline to be president of Israel.

    can anyone confirm this for me?\

    "Equations are more important to me, because politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity."
