Albert Einstein

©James Bennett Dream by SV Bosak

German-born (later became an American citizen), Nobel Prize-winning scientist, member of the Club of Dreamers (Dream by Susan V. Bosak).

Einstein was a shy child who didn't
fit in; his teachers thought he was rather slow. He became what many consider to be one of the smartest people who has ever lived.

He always had a clear view of the problems of physics and a determination to solve them. He had a strategy of his own and was able to visualize the main stages on the way to his goal. He regarded his major achievements as mere stepping-stones for the next advance.

His most famous formula is E = mc², which says that energy (E) equals mass (m) times the speed of light (c) squared. In essence, it means mass is just one form of energy.

Said Albert Einstein:

"For an idea that does not at first seem insane, there is no hope."

"In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."

"The important thing is not to stop questioning."

"Concern for man himself and his fate must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavors... in order that the creations of our mind shall be a blessing and not a curse to mankind."
