Einstein did not perform par excellence in science only. He also said things in a way that nobody else could. He said it and the phrase became immortal. Today we know those phrases as Albert Einstein quotes.
Whether you like Einstein or not, you cannot deny that he was a genius and he did do world-changing things. His words do hold significance. Those words are not of someone like Oscar Wilde who could only say and did almost nothing compared to Einstein. This history making scientist had seen it all: the shift of a century, the rise of socialism, Hitler’s Germany… when he says something, those are the words of a man who has seen more of the world than most of us will ever do.
Now before we move on to the quotes, here are top 10 strange facts about Einstein.
As a baby, Einstein had a big head (no pun intended) and was obese.
Einstein had speech difficulty in childhood. According to researchers, this speech difficulty, or technically speaking, dyslexia helped him to focus so much on his thoughts and that abnormality made him one of the greatest men of the century. If your child has a problem, that might be a blessing. Support him/her, don’t be discouraging.
When Einstein was five years old, his father gave him a pocket compass. That sparked Einstein’s interest in science which led him to be what he did.
At the age 17, he took entrance exam at Swiss Federal Polytechnic School. He failed in all non-science subjects, such as languages, geography, history etc.
Hans, Einstein’s eldest son blamed his father for the divorce of his mother. Einstein never got along with his eldest child.
Einstein wanted to marry Ilse, the daughter of his second Elsa. Ilse was a child from Elsa’s first marriage. Ilse refused to marry Einstein since she loved him as a father-figure.
Einstein urged the government to build atom bomb.
Einstein also had an illegitimate child (who’s fate was never known) and he also proposed a strange contract to his first wife. Even though I have researched on both these aspects, they are really not something to discuss of a dead person. I don’t want myself to write about those things, if you really wanna know, just click on the links.
