In his writings or perhaps during any of his lectures, did Albert Einstein suggest the possibility of intelligent life in the cosmos. He seems to have had a pretty good understanding of how the Universe works...just curious if he thought life existed off the planet earth?

Why should he as the best reasoning of the day incl his own could hardly recommend a starting point to this idea without some logical system of reasoning that evidence was mathematically provocative? The same year 1921 when he was writing a theory about a non Lorentzian vacuum aether was the same year the Polish philosopher Lesniedwski had writtenPapers noting that logic could not possibly exist to realise where else Life in the Universe of Stars would be discernable.Not that he had any chance to realise this person.
He was part of European intellectual life though so why think he would suddenly say anything different? Maybe Lesniewski thought it was a sign of his own superior conclusion re this rare subject.? As daring a question as the question about A Einstein.The Universe then was not thought so large as found today either I hasten to add.
