You learn something new every day

A great collection of colorful quotes here! I especially like the humorous but probably all-too-true one by Scott Adams, and the thoughtful one by Freeman Dyson. On a side note, I didn't realize Huey Lewis went to engineering school. He probably made a much better choice by being a musician--even if in retrospect it's hard to believe his music was so popular at one point in time. I think he did a bit of acting as well, another profession that, as another one of the people you quote mentions, would have made him far more popular with the ladies than engineering. ;)

I wish Einstein's comment was true. But the majority of today's engineers seem to be working on upgrades rather than creating new things.

I found Neil Armstrong's stereotype hilarious - I think it still carries over to this day :)

100 years with Einstein

I must admit, when I saw the picture of Einstein I was hoping for a slide show showcasing technical advances that came directly from e=mc2...it's been 100 years.

The quotes were fun!  It's a very nice distraction from work!

you are right in a sense but adding something new to the old stuff keeps it in demand.

Elizabeth I also do like for the humorous, and also those humorous things will increase the applicability of those quotes.

I agree, Pubudu, and humor is also a lighthearted way to get across the truth when it's a little bit prickly. In the case of engineer stereotypes and some of the other subject matter here, humor is a good thing!

How about: "Whoa! I didn't see that coming!" Or, "Nope. That didn't work!"
