Albert Einstein, the author of the theory of relativity and the most famous equation in the world : E=mc˛ which explains the power of nuclear energy, was also renowned for his great sense of peace, his humility, his enormous simplicity and great sense of humor. He always tried to find ways to use his great celebrity (which always surprised him alot) for the promotion of a culture of peace.
For an excellent mini-biography on Albert Einstein, I suggest that you go visit the following website : www.astrofiles.net
"The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything."
"God does not play dice."
"What makes the true worth of a human being, is his capacity to have freed himself from his little sense of ego."
"A person who never made any mistakes, never tried to go forward either."
"The worth of a man stands in his capacity to give, and not in his capacity to take."
"Science wihtout religion is crippled, religion without science is blind."
"I want to know the mind of God ; everything else is just details."
"Imagination is more important then knowledge."
"Place your hand on a hot stove and it will seem to last an hour. Sit next to a beautiful lady for an hour, and it will seem to last only a minute. That is relativity."
"The most beautiful thing that we can feel, is the great mystey of things."
- Albert Einstein
