“When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity.”

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

Einstein’s body was cremated except for his brain, which was preserved and studied. It was found that the mathematical part of his brain was larger and lacked a groove found in other human brains.

As a small digit, Albert Einstein first had dreams of becoming a scientist when his father gave him a compass. Albert was in awe of the power which caused the needle to always point north, and he knew he wanted to find out how and why things worked. The year 1905 was an amazing time for physical science because of Albert Einstein. That year he published three papers; each one became the basis for a new branch of physics. In one paper, Einstein gave his theory of quantum mechanics. His ideas on quanta formed the foundation which made possible television, sound motion pictures and other inventions. In his second paper, Einstein presented his theory of relativity. This is where he wrote the famous equation E=mc2 (energy=mass times the speed of light squared) and laid the groundwork for the development of nuclear energy and the nuclear bomb. His third paper concerned brownian motion and confirmed the atomic theory of matter. Not only was Albert Einstein one of the most innovative and brilliant thinkers of his generation, he was also a humble and caring man, who worked diligently to help those in need and to promote world peace. He was against violence and war. When he saw the destruction caused by Hitler before and during World War II, he helped the U.S. develop the atom bomb in hopes it would end the war. After the war was over, Einstein once again did all he could to promote world cooperation and peace.
