Albert Einstein Wiki Biography

Albert Einstein was born on 14 March 1879, in Ulm, Wurttemberg, Germany, of Jewish descent. Albert is one of the most well-known scientists in history, particularly revered for his work on the formula E=mc2 which is for mass-energy equivalence. He also developed the theory of relativity which has been responsible for multiple break-throughs in physics. Aside from these, Albert was one of the main reasons for the start the Manhattan Project as a response from the World War 2 Allies to creating new and powerful bombs. His efforts helped raise his net worth in his life.

How rich was Albert Einstein? As of early-2016, sources estimate that his net worth was at $1 million mostly earned through the success he had working on his passion for science. Albert was a Nobel Prize winner and published more than 300 papers on his scientific work, not including his non-scientific work that amounts to 150 papers. His continued pursuit of knowledge ensured his wealth.

After his father’s company failed to make a profit, Albert and the family moved to Milan and then Pavia, Italy. By 1895, he took exams for entry into the Swiss Federal Polytechnic but since he failed the standards (except for physics and math), he was sent to Argovian cantonal school. At the age of 17, Einstein enrolled in a math and physics teaching program which he completed by 1900; meantime, he had also renounced his German citizenship to avoid being part of the German army. After graduating, Albert couldn’t find a teaching post, and instead got a job in a patent office in Bern. During his time there, he examined a variety of patents that focused on electrical and mechanical machines, which helped fuel his thoughts on science and philosophy. Around this period, Einstein was also becoming known in academia thanks to his published works, and in 1905 he was awarded his PhD by the University of Zurich thanks to his thesis entitled “A New Determination of Molecular Dimensions”.

He continued his work, publishing papers on various scientific topics which brought him to prominence when 26 years old. By 1911, Einstein had become a full professor and also obtained Austrian citizenship. He continued to teach and publish, eventually returning to Germany to be part and head of many physics and science institutions in the country. He worked on a new theory of relativity that was proven in 1919 and would later earn him the Nobel Prize in Physics.

The following years Einstein would travel the world, visiting the US, then London, Singapore, Japan, and Palestine. writing about most of the places he visited and how the people were in each country. He returned to the US in 1930 to be greeted by crowds, events and high profile names in the country. This also led to Einstein befriending Charlie Chaplin, plus Upton Sinclair, and a few other politicians and celebrities. By 1933, on a visit once again to the United States, he knew that he could not return to Germany with the rise of Adolf Hitler to power. Because of this, he renounced his German citizenship which he had re-adopted in 1914, and became a refugee in the United States, eventually becoming a US citizen in 1940. He continued his work, and despite disapproving the development of nuclear weapons, he refuted any violence and became outspoken about his pacifism.

In his personal life, Einstein was married to Mileva Maric and they had a daughter before their marriage, though information about what happened to their child is shrouded in mystery. Their marriage happened in 1903 and they then had two sons, but eventually separated and divorced by 1919. He then married Elsa Lowenthal in the same year, and was married to her until her death in 1936. During 1955, Einstein was sent to Princeton Hospital due to internal bleeding caused by a rupture of an aneurysm. He decided that artificially prolonging his life was no longer necessary and he refused surgery. He died at the age of 76 years old and while his remains were cremated, the pathologist took Einstein’s brain to be preserved and studied by future generations.

1If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?
2[in 1932] There is not the slightest indication that nuclear energy will ever be obtainable. It would mean that the atom would have to be shattered at will.
3Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.
4Before God, we are equally wise--equally foolish.
5The eternal mystery of the universe is its comprehensibility.
6If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.
7The hardest thing in the world to understand is income tax.
8Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school.
9An empty stomach is not a good political adviser.
10If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.
11There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
12I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.
13Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
14Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age 18.
15Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
16The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
17Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.
18The important thing is not to stop questioning.
19I am a deeply religious nonbeliever. This is a somewhat new kind of religion.
20Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
21[Referring to Mohandas K. Gandhi after Gandhi's assassination] Generations to come, it may be, will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth!
22[Upon learning of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima] If I had only known, I would have been a watchmaker!
23Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.
24A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years but a photograph always remains the same. How nice to look at a photograph of mother or father taken many years ago. You see them as you remember them. But as people live on, they change completely. That is why I think a photograph can be kind.
25in "Life" magazine, 9 January 1950] The grand aim of all science is to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms.
26by Ted Morgan in the book "FDR", Simon & Schuster, 1985] I made one great mistake in my life--when I signed the letter to [President Franklin D. Roosevelt] recommending that atom bombs be made . . . but there was some justification: the danger that the Germans would make them.
27When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come close to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.
28I think and think for months and years. Ninety-nine times, the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right.
29I assert that the cosmic religious experience is the strongest and the noblest driving force behind scientific research.
30Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
31As a young man, my fondest dream was to become a geographer. However while working in the customs office I thought deeply about the matter and concluded that it was far too difficult a subject. With some reluctance, I then turned to physics as a substitute.
32There is a race between mankind and the universe. Mankind is trying to build bigger, better, faster, and more foolproof machines. The universe is trying to build bigger, better, and faster fools. So far the universe is winning.
33The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.
34Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
35The wireless telegraph is not difficult to understand. The ordinary telegraph is like a very long cat. You pull the tail in New York, and it meows in Los Angeles. The wireless is the same, only without the cat.
36If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?
37The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
38I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.
39Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts.
40I do not much believe in education. Each man ought to be his own model, however frightful that may be.
41The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.
42[giving the most practical, understandable explanation of the Theory of Relativity; how time can expand or contract] You spend 30 minutes with a beautiful girl, it seems like a moment. You spend a moment sitting on a hot stove, it seems like 30 minutes.
1Producer Julian Blaustein cast Sam Jaffee as Professor Barnhardt in "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (1951) because of his resemblance to Albert Einstein who, at that time, was the most recognized scientist in the world. For years afterward, Blaustein, and director Robert Wise, would refer to Professor Barnhardt as the "Einstein character.".

This quirk was later given to two characters played by Jeff Goldblum: Seth Brundle in The Fly (1986) and Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park (1993). The same quirk was parodied by Jim Varney's alter ego, Ernest, in a series of films.
23Had Asperger Syndrome but wasn't diagnosed until it was discovered by Dr Hans Asperger in the late 1940s.
24E=mc2 is Einstein's most famous equation, and it establishes a correlation between mass and energy (c is the speed of light) for the first time -- later practically exemplified in the splitting of the atom and the inauguration of the exploration of atomic (nuclear) energy.
