Born on the 14th of March 1879 in Ulm, Germany, Albert Einstein completed his education and training to be a physics and mathematics teacher.

In 1905, Albert Einstein completed his Doctor’s degree before gaining several prominent academic posts whilst completing his monumental work.

In 1916, Albert published his paper on the general theory of relativity, and it was his special theory of relativity that is presented with the incredibly famous equation E=mc2.

Albert’s ability to see past the already known world with its constraining knowledge and into the wonder beyond enabled such revolutionary theories. As he has been known to say famously, imagination is much more important than knowledge.

 

The genius of this great man is unquestionable. However, according to some biographies, Albert Einstein didn’t speak until he was three years old, didn’t use full sentences until he was five, and was once told by a teacher that he would never amount to anything.

Experts have proposed that the likelihood that Albert Einstein had Asperger syndrome is very high. This has been deduced by his obsessive passions, outspoken political stance and the nature of his social relationships.

Here are just a few of the inspiring and thought-provoking quotes from one of history’s greatest minds.
