Day #489:10 of the Best Albert Einstein Quotes

E=mc2 is one of the most groundbreaking equations of the twentieth century, attributed to the influential physicist Albert Einstein. A household name, the German-born genius was more than just a scientist – he was also an inquisitive philosopher who pondered humanity’s largest questions and dilemmas. Issues of war, peace and the nature of free will occupied the mind of Einstein. The gifted thinker did not see the fruits of his success until the age of 42 when he won the 1921 Nobel Prize for physics, gaining international recognition and fame for his influential work in the field. A renaissance man of sorts, Einstein was a gifted musician and an ardent human rights activist, campaigning for civil rights for African Americans in the United States. Often shy and modest, Einstein was full of wisdom, and lucky for us, many of Einstein’s quotes and writings were recorded and are easily accessible. So without further adieu, learn more about how the great Albert Einstein viewed the world and just how much it can relate to you.
