Something inexplicable

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.
--Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

Yep, I had to look it up...concatenations: a series or chain of linked events. It's not enough that he was a genius at physics...I'm even baffled by his English. :) Now that I understand the quote, I have to say that I love it. I love that Einstein, with all his brilliance and his remarkable understanding of science and creation, still maintained a sense of awe and mystery.


  1. I agree--a big word, but one that defines his meaning well. Lovely posts lately--I haven't been by in a while, and enjoyed my visit today.
