Genius

















Albert Einstein was a physisist, a mathematician, a thinker and lot more.
Ein-stein literally means "one stone".
Some of his quotes -

Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.

A perfection of means, and confusion of aims, seems to be our main problem.

Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.

A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?

God does not care about our mathematical difficulties. He integrates empirically.

Politics is for the present, but an equation is for eternity.

Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.

I do not know with what weapons World War 3 will be fought, but World War 4 will be fought with sticks and stones.

If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Keep on sowing your seed, for you never know which will grow - perhaps it all will.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

Einstein was attacked by some with anti-Jewish leanings. When a pamphlet was published entitled "100 Authors Against Einstein",Einstein retorted "If I were wrong, one would be enough."

About uncertainty principle he said,"God does not play dice with the world".

he also said: one of my favorite quotes:

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."
