There was a German man who often visited America, and at almost every instance, he would be stopped by a passerby with a request to elaborate on “that theory”. For a man who had no desire to be in the limelight, this indeed got irksome, and so he decided on the course of action that would follow. The next time he was stopped by an inquisitive person on the road, he said, “Pardon me, sorry! Always I am mistaken for Professor Einstein.” Need we formally introduce one of the most venerable physicists of the 20th century, Albert Einstein? Cutting to the chase, he was the astute mind behind the general theory of relativity; the one who altered the face of modern physics and quantum mechanics. This superlative genius is so distinguished that for several years now, scientists have tried to figure out if he had a unique brain structure that could account for his high IQ. The ‘Nobel Prize’ winner’s life and works have inspired innumerable movies, plays as well as books. His absentmindedness, whacky hairdo and eloquent expressions are distinctive characteristics that have served as cues for actors playing a mad scientist or a forgetful professor. Perspicacious, epigrammatic and intriguing aren’t words enough to describe the following quotes by Albert Einstein.

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
