Here i will share with you quotes by Albert Einstein, specially the most famous ones.
Before we go for quotes by Albert Einstein. Lets summaries his main activity which lead him to be the genius of all time.
Einstein used his imagination, yes he was always thinking in pictures and visualizing things. When his father gave him a compass, he would just sit up night after night watching the needle point northward, it would send chills down his spine.
He was once traveling on a bus and while passing by a clock tower. He imagined what happens if that bus were racing near the speed of light. In his imagination Einstein looks back at the clock tower and what he sees is astonishing. As he reaches the speed of light the hands of the clock appear frozen.
Since, the light from the clock can no longer catch up to him, the faster he races through space the slower he moves through time. This insight sparks the birth of Einstein’s special theory of relativity which says that space and time are deeply connected.
Also, Einstein wanted an equation perhaps no more than one inch long that would encapsulate all physical laws.
Famous quote by Einstein
He once said,” I want to know God’s thoughts in a mathematical way”.

SMALL OVERVIEW OF EINSTEIN LIFE
Here is small story about Albert Einstein. Since childhood, he was a slow learner and spoke very slowly. Because of that, his parents actually feared he may have learning difficulties.
Some of the amazing facts you probably didn’t know about the man the world’s most renowned genius. Albert Einstein was born in Ulm in Germany during 1879.
The story of Einstein’s brilliance started when he was just four years old. His father gave him a magnetic pocket compass to play with(as explained in introduction).
In 1933, when he was visiting America just as Hitler came into power back in Einstein’s home country of Germany. Since, he was born to Jewish parents he rightly thought it would not be a good idea to return to Germany. The Nazis were so offended by Einstein’s intellect that they burned all his books, also included him on a list of enemies of the Nazi state entitled “not yet hanged”.
Einstein was granted refugee status and became a citizen of the United States of America.
He was well known for his iconic look: uncombed hair and baggy, oversized clothes.
Also, he had an incredibly bad memory. He couldn’t remember most people’s names and couldn’t remember any phone numbers, including his own.
Einstein used to charge people for his autograph then donate all the money to charity.
The prestigious Nobel Prize was awarded to Albert Einstein in 1921. But not for his work on the theory of relativity. He actually got it for his work on helping to discover the photoelectric effect.
Before being cremated, an autopsy was performed on his body by Thomas Harvey. He removed Einstein’s brain for study.
The ideas Einstein put forward in this revolutionary paper had enormous consequences that completely changed the way we think about, mass, energy, space and time. The most famous equation in the world, E=mc2, otherwise known as the mass-energy equivalence. As a result E=mc2 gave rise to the atomic bomb and the nuclear arms race.
These things wouldn’t exist without Einstein’s two theories of relativity: GPS systems, televisions, nuclear power plants, remote control devices, lasers, DVD-players and many others.
