Albert Einstein on Lenin

“In Lenin I honor a man, who in total sacrifice of his own person has committed his entire energy to realizing social justice. I do not find his methods advisable. One thing is certain, however: men like him are the guardians and renewers [Erneuerer] of mankind’s conscience.”

Sir Albert Einstein (1929), the Nobel Laureate Physicist.
