如果在 Google 搜寻「国际观」，至少 31 万笔新闻跳出来：「台湾学生没国际观？」、「不熟希特勒缺少国际观？」、「培养国际观，就能…」什幺是国际观？一种看世界的方式？长久以来，「如何看世界」一直是人们关心的话题。爱因斯坦在 1921 年获得诺贝尔物理学奖时，为众人演讲《我眼中的世界》，谈到他如何从生命、社会、政治、甚至宇宙，理解眼前的世界。
Jason Mraz 给爱因斯坦的告白歌 The World As I See It
美国歌手 Jason Mraz 受到爱因斯坦启发，2011 年发布同名单曲，获得 AllMusic 和专业乐评 PopMatters 等的高度称讚。
What an extraordinary situation is that of us mortals!
Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he sometimes thinks he feels it.
But from the point of view of daily life, without going deeper, we exist for our fellow-men--in the first place for those on whose smiles and welfare all our happiness depends, and next for all those unknown to us personally with whose destinies we are bound up by the tie of sympathy.
A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.
I am strongly drawn to the simple life and am often oppressed by the feeling that I am engrossing an unnecessary amount of the labour of my fellow-men.
I regard class differences as contrary to justice and, in the last resort, based on force. I also consider that plain living is good for everybody, physically and mentally.
My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced freedom from the need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities.
I gang my own gait and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties I have never lost an obstinate sense of detachment, of the need for solitude--a feeling which increases with the years.
One is sharply conscious, yet without regret, of the limits to the possibility of mutual understanding and sympathy with one's fellow-creatures.
Such a person no doubt loses something in the way of geniality and light-heartedness; on the other hand, he is largely independent of the opinions, habits, and judgments of his fellows and avoids the temptation to take his stand on such insecure foundations.
The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.
He who knows it not and can no longer wonder, no longer feel amazement, is as good as dead, a snuffed-out candle. It was the experience of mystery--even if mixed with fear--that engendered religion.
A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which are only accessible to our reason in their most elementary forms --it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man.
