Physics may have been a feared subject for many of us during our school days, but one formula which we cannot forget is the mass-energy equivalence formula, E = mc2 . Its so popular that it is also known as the ‘world’s most famous equation’. The person who came up with this equation and made many such significant contributions to the world of physics is German-born theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein. He also developed the theory of relativity which forms one of the two pillars of modern physics alongside quantum mechanics. Such has been the level of his intellectual achievements that today the word ‘Einstein’ is synonymous to ‘genius’.
Throughout his career he has taught in many universities and has been a citizen of various countries like Germany, Switzerland and The United States. Though he alerted the American president Theodore Roosevelt about the possibility of nuclear warfare he was against the idea of using nuclear fission as a weapon. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in the year 1921 as a recognition of his efforts to the world of physics. Here are some of the best quotes by the ‘Genius’.
