Albert Einstein Biography
Born in Germany on March 14, 1879 to educated middle class parents, Einstein had passion for music and, playing violin and piano from his childhood. He was amused seeing a pocket compass given to him by his father, when Einstein was five. He realized that there is a force causing the needle to move inside the compass. This clearly shows Einstein was very observant even as a kid. Having schooled at Luitpold Gymnasium in Munich, Einstein went to Switzerland to pursue his Secondary School education at Aarau, and joined the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School to become a teacher in Mathematics and Physics. After gaining the diploma in 1901, Albert Einstein
acquired Swizz citizenship and accepted the job as a technical assistant in a Swiss Patent office. He received Doctor’s degree in 1905. It was during this time Einstein published his most famous research papers, including the Brownian Movement of Molecules, Theory of Relativity, and the equation, E=mc2, that changed the concept of energy. Albert Einstein’s law of photoelectric effect won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921.
Albert Einstein quotes - Words of an Intellect
Apart from his scientific contributions, Albert Einstein quotes
are intellectual too. Most of them imply that he had a clear view and determination to solve problems. The quotes, "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them", “Imagination is more important than knowledge” and "I never think of the future. It comes soon enough" are perfect examples. Quite interesting and impressive are Albert Einstein quotes like "Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school" and "Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love”.
