However, the band's feature film Good to See You Again, Alice Cooper consisting mainly of concert footage with 'comedic' sketches woven throughout to a faint storylinereleased on a minor cinematic run mostly to drive-in theaters, saw little box-office success.
To avoid legal complications over ownership of the group name, "Alice Cooper" had by then become the singer's new legal name. Speaking on the subject of Alice Cooper continuing as a solo project as opposed to the band it once was, Cooper stated in"It got very basically down to the fact that we had drawn as much as we could out of each other.

Flush the Fashion, produced by Queen producer Roy Thomas Bakerhad a thick, edgy new wave musical sound that baffled even longtime fans, though it still yielded the US Top 40 hit "Clones We're All ".

I was overwhelmed by how quickly things were happening for us, and Claudio convinced me to drop out of high school only 2 credits away from graduation. As we started to gain attention, he began abusively and systematically targeting my insecurities and controlling my behavior: He kept me from doing interviews or photoshoots unless he was in control of the situation.
He became physically abusive. He held me over a staircase and threatened to throw me down it. He picked me up over his shoulders and threw me onto concrete. He took pictures of my bruises and posted them online. I tried to leave, and he swore that it would never happen again, that he would never physically abuse me again. More severe psychological and emotional abuse took its place. He controlled everything I did.
He berated me and yelled at me, telling me that I was a joke, that all the people that came to our shows were only interested in his instrumentals and that I was ruining the band. He broke glass shower doors to frighten me, he locked me into rooms.
He told me that my feminism made me a target for rapists and only he could protect me. I was miserable and my lyrics indirectly spoke to the pain and oppression that I was enduring. New York Times 18 May ; Einstein: His Life and Times Philipp Frank, p. In so far as theories of mathematics speak about reality, they are not certain, and in so far as they are certain, they do not speak about reality.
Geometrie and Erfahrung pp. I was sitting in a chair in the patent office at Bern when all of sudden a thought occurred to me: If a person falls freely he will not feel his own weight.
This simple thought made a deep impression on me. It impelled me toward a theory of gravitation. Comment made after a six-week trip to Japan in November-Decemberpublished in Kaizo 5, no.
Quantum mechanics is certainly imposing. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. Einstein himself used variants of this quote at other times. For example, in a conversation with William Hermanns recorded in Hermanns' book Einstein and the Poet, Einstein said: It is the theory which decides what can be observed. Objecting to the placing of observables at the heart of the new quantum mechanics, during Heisenberg's lecture at Berlin; related by Heisenberg, quoted in Unification of Fundamental Forces by Abdus Salam ISBN Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable.
Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in point of fact, religious. Weidenfeld and Nicolson Response to atheist Alfred Kerr in the winter ofwho after deriding ideas of God and religion at a dinner party in the home of the publisher Samuel Fischerhad queried him "I hear that you are supposed to be deeply religious" as quoted in The Diary of a Cosmopolitan by H.
Kessler Ich glaube an Spinozas Gott, der sich in der gesetzlichen Harmonie des Seienden offenbart, nicht an einen Gott, der sich mit Schicksalen und Handlungen der Menschen abgibt.

Science and Religion by Arnold V. Work is x, play is y and z is keeping your mouth shut. Cited with additional notes in The Ultimate Quotable Einstein by Alice Calaprice and Freeman DysonPrinceton UP p Science is international but its success is based on institutions, which are owned by nations.
If therefore, we wish to promote culture we have to combine and to organize institutions with our own power and means. Is human reason, then, without experience, merely by taking thought, able to fathom the properties of real things? One reason why mathematics enjoys special esteem, above all other sciences, is that its laws are absolutely certain and indisputable, while those of other sciences are to some extent debatable and in constant danger of being overthrown by newly discovered facts.
As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality. Viereck interview [ edit ] "What Life Means to Einstein: A scan of the article is available online here.

I am a Jewbut I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene. 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. I look upon myself as a man. Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. The meaning of relativity has been widely misunderstood. Philosophers play with the word, like a child with a doll. Relativity, as I see it, merely denotes that certain physical and mechanical facts, which have been regarded as positive and permanent, are relative with regard to certain other facts in the sphere of physics and mechanics.
It does not mean that everything in life is relative and that we have the right to turn the whole world mischievously topsy-turvy. No man can visualize four dimensions, except mathematically … I think in four dimensions, but only abstractly. The human mind can picture these dimensions no more than it can envisage electricity. Nevertheless, they are no less real than electro-magnetism, the force which controls our universe, within, and by which we have our being.
Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing. My laurel is not for sale like so many bales of cotton.

If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. Reading after a certain age diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking, just as the man who spends too much time in the theater is tempted to be content with living vicariously instead of living his own life.
Our time is Gothic in its spirit. Unlike the Renaissance, it is not dominated by a few outstanding personalities. The twentieth century has established the democracy of the intellect. In the republic of art and science there are many men who take an equally important part in the intellectual movements of our age. It is the epoch rather than the individual that is important. There is no one dominant personality like Galileo or Newton.
Even in the nineteenth century there were still a few giants who outtopped all others. Today the general level is much higher than ever before in the history of the world, but there are few men whose stature immediately sets them apart from all others. In America, more than anywhere else, the individual is lost in the achievements of the many. America is beginning to be the world leader in scientific investigation. American scholarship is both patient and inspiring. The Americans show an unselfish devotion to science, which is the very opposite of the conventional European view of your countrymen.
Too many of us look upon Americans as dollar chasers. This is a cruel libel, even if it is reiterated thoughtlessly by the Americans themselves. It is not true that the dollar is an American fetish.
The American student is not interested in dollars, not even in success as such, but in his task, the object of the search. It is his painstaking application to the study of the infinitely little and the infinitely large which accounts for his success in astronomy.
We are inclined to overemphasize the material influences in history. The Russians especially make this mistake. Intellectual values and ethnic influences, tradition and emotional factors are equally important.
If this were not the case, Europe would today be a federated state, not a madhouse of nationalism. I am a determinist. As such, I do not believe in free will. The Jews believe in free will. They believe that man shapes his own life. I reject that doctrine philosophically. In that respect I am not a Jew. His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson, p. We can do what we wish, but we can only wish what we must. Practically, I am, nevertheless, compelled to act as if freedom of the will existed.
If I wish to live in a civilized community, I must act as if man is a responsible being. I know that philosophically a murderer is not responsible for his crime; nevertheless, I must protect myself from unpleasant contacts. I may consider him guiltless, but I prefer not to take tea with him. My own career was undoubtedly determined, not by my own will but by various factors over which I have no control—primarily those mysterious glands in which Nature prepares the very essence of life, our internal secretions.
Whereas materialistic historians and philosophers neglect psychic realities, Freud is inclined to overstress their importance. I am not a psychologist, but it seems to me fairly evident that physiological factors, especially our endocrines, control our destiny … I am not able to venture a judgment on so important a phase of modern thought.

However, it seems to me that psychoanalysis is not always salutary. It may not always be helpful to delve into the subconscious. The machinery of our legs is controlled by a hundred different muscles. Do you think it would help us to walk if we analyzed our legs and knew exactly which one of the little muscles must be employed in locomotion and the order in which they work?
I think he is even greater as a writer than as a psychologist. Freud's brilliant style is unsurpassed by anyone since Schopenhauer. The only progress I can see is progress in organization. The ordinary human being does not live long enough to draw any substantial benefit from his own experience.
And no one, it seems, can benefit by the experiences of others. Being both a father and teacher, I know we can teach our children nothing. We can transmit to them neither our knowledge of life nor of mathematics. Each must learn its lesson anew. I believe in intuitions and inspirations. I sometimes feel that I am right. I do not know that I am. When two expeditions of scientists, financed by the Royal Academy, went forth to test my theory of relativity, I was convinced that their conclusions would tally with my hypothesis.
I was not surprised when the eclipse of May 29,confirmed my intuitions.
