About Einstein

Albert Einstein was a German-American physicist. He was born at Ulm, in Württemberg, Germany, on March 14, 1879. He won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921. He moved to the United States and became a lecturer and mathematics professor at Princeton. His activities in America not only related to science, but also to politics and social issues. Albert Einstein was a known pacifism activist and a famously absent-minded professor.

How I Chose These Quotes

For this article, after doing my research, I just chose simple, short, unique, and funny quotes. I divide the list into categories: love, life, success, God and religion, and knowledge. I hope you find some inspiration and laughter in Einstein's words.
