"If I had only known, I would have been a locksmith."

Does anyone know when Einstein said this, where he was at the time, or any other circumstances related to the quote?

Not sure on that one, but I did find this:

If I would be a young man again and had to decide how to make a living, I would not try to become a scientist or scholar or teacher. I would rather choose to be a plumber or a peddler, in the hope of finding that modest degree of independence still available under present circumstances.~ To the editor, The Reporter, October 13, 1954. (At other times he would choose to be a musician or a lighthouse keeper)

I liked the following Einstein quote.

"Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty"

What about you?
