Albert Einstein Quotes
Who was Albert Einstein?
Albert Einstein was born in 1879 in Ulm, Wurttemberg, Germany. Einstein was slow in developing his speaking ability, not talking until after the age of two. One of Einstein’s schoolmaster's said that he would never amount to much due to his slow verbal ability and his rebellious attitude.
Albert Einstein received the Nobel Prize in 1921 for his 1905 work on the photoelectric effect, not for his relativity theory, and is considered to be the most accomplished and famous scientist of the 20th century.
Albert Einstein stayed at Princeton, where he worked for the Institute for Advanced Study, until his death in 1955. He was working on a theory of physics which unified gravity with the other forces of nature at the time of his death. Albert Einstein was named Person of the Century by TIME magazine in 1999.
