Quote of the Day: Albert Einstein on Time

Here’s a quote from Albert Einstein on time (yes, that Albert Einstein):

“People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubborn, persistent illusion.”

(Quoted on p. 27, and in the context of a discussion of the notion that we might live in a “block universe”, in the 4th edition of the college textbook, How to Think about Weird Things.)
