Interesting Facts About Albert Einstein

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.

– Albert Einstein

AlbertEinsteinAlbert Einstein is no doubt one of the greatest minds that ever lived in this planet. He was born in Ulm Germany in the year 1879. He is best known by his famous mass–energy equation E = mc2. He received several notable awards and he was given a Nobel Prize for his valuable service and contribution to theoretical physics specifically his discovery of the Law of Photoelectric Effect which has become essential in developing quantum theory.

However, the undeniably genius and the most influential physicist Albert Einstein was once labeled as slow to learn. He struggled with early speech difficulties and his early teachers thought that he is slow learner because he did not show any interest in studying languages and learning by means of rote which was a popular method at that time.

But contrary to the general belief, the young Albert is fascinated with Math and educated himself by reading geometry book from cover to cover. At age 12, he is already properly acquainted to the greatest scientific discoveries of time. The school bores him a lot because he wants to learn what he wants to know. Eventually, he was asked to quit school because they believe that his indifference will affect other students.

After leaving school, he decided to be a Math teacher to be able to support his studies on Math and Physics. He took admission exam at Federal institute of Technology in Zurich but he failed in botany, languages and zoology. He took the test again the following year and pass.

His biggest accomplishments were developed during his free time at Swiss Patent Office. He was able to produced remarkable original works with unique insights that astounds scientific establishments. Such celebrated work includes photoelectric effect, Brownian motion, special relativity and the equivalence of matter and energy. Following this notable year which Albert considered as “miracle year” were numerous honors and awards that changed his life forever. And the rest was history.

In your case, how long will you keep your talent and genius hidden? How long would it take you to decide who you want to be?

“Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics”.

Affirmation for today:

I am creative, imaginative and see beauty in everything!
