Albert Einstein is proclaimed as The Father of Modern Physics and he won the Nobel Prize in 1921. Einstein is best known in popular culture for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc² (which has been dubbed “the world’s most famous equation”). However, he did not speak until he was 4-years-old and did not read until he was 7. His parents thought he was “sub-normal,” and one of his teachers described him as “mentally slow, unsociable, and adrift forever in foolish dreams.”
Albert Einstein provides a great source of inspiration as he went from failure to success. I particularly like the following quote of Albert Einstein, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving”. It motivates me to move forward and conquers the challenges in life.
You might be interested in understand more about the life of Albert Einstein through his biography that was written by Walter Isaacson, author of the acclaimed bestsellers Benjamin Franklin and Steve Jobs.
How did Albert Einstein’s mind work? What made him a genius? Isaacson’s biography shows how his scientific imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality. His fascinating story is a testament to the connection between creativity and freedom.
Based on newly released personal letters of Einstein, this book explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk—a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn’t get a teaching job or a doctorate—became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos, the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom, and the universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds, free spirits, and free individuals.
These traits are just as vital for this new century of globalization, in which our success will depend on our creativity, as they were for the beginning of the last century, when Einstein helped usher in the modern age.
