Born 14 March 1879 - 18 April 1955
Since it has now come again to the anniversary of Albert Einstein's birthday, a lot of people are turning their attention to his many accomplishments in the world of science. Many people are now curiously wondering more about him, and some realize that all they really know for a fact is that he had some wild hair and he was a brilliant scientist who made great strides in the advancement in theoretical physics. He is best known for his theory of relativity, as well as his mass--energy equivalence formula. So, this is a man who had an absolutely dazzling career in theoretical physics, and he really created the building blocks for modern physics and quantum mechanics today.
There are a ton of quotes that were either heard or written by Albert Einstein
, and are now strewn across the world wide web. He is a man from history that is quite often portrayed in movies, television shows and novels by a wide variety of people. He is one of those men from history that writer's and artists love to portray, because he was so unique and eccentric. People have a lot of fun paying tribute to his scientific talent and his overall singleness, because there was truly no one like Albert Einstein in his time.
Many people only view him only as an incredibly intelligent man, but he was so much more than that. He was the faithful husband to his wife, Elsa, and he even wrote to her every single day while he was away traveling around the world. He wrote to his wife, as well as to his adopted daughters, Margot and Ilse. From the years between 1912 and 1955, there can be found around 3,500 pages of letters. Which is interesting, because there is a very popular quote made famous by Albert Einstein that basically shoots down the idea that people fall in love because of a gravitational pull. This idea that he is dispelling spreads the notion that we do not have a choice in the person whom we end up falling in love with and spending the rests of our lives with. Albert Einstein's view was crystal clear, and we can see from his example, that he was a faithful man who wrote to his wife and adopted daughters every, single day while he was away traveling.
The truth is, that when a man's legacy is so monumental and so incredible, people overlook who he is as a person. He was a great lover of music and it was very pivotal in his work as a theoretical physicist. He had a great family, whom he loved with all of his heart. He was so much more than the caricatures that many people see in cartoons and comics today. Since Albert Einstein's birthday is coming up in a few days, take a few minutes to appreciate his work as a scientist, and reflect on his faithful attitude when it came to his family. He was not quite the forgetful and oblivious scientist that most people feel he was. He had a very strong idea of what was most important, and that was his family.
