March 14th is Einstein's birthday and he seems like he was a really cool dude. Look at some of the insightful things he's said that are STILL TRUE TODAY.

“Everything is determined…by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for the insect as well as for the star. Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust—we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.”

“The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

“Do not worry about your difficulties in mathematics; I can assure you that mine are still greater.”

“All my life I have dealt with objective matters; hence I lack both the natural aptitude and the experience to deal properly with people and to carry out official functions.”

“There is only one road to human greatness: through the school of hard knocks.”

“I do not play games…. There is not time for it. When I get through with work, I don’t want anything that requires the working of the mind.”

“The value of an education in a liberal arts college is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think something that cannot be learned from textbooks.”

Now that we have that out of the way, a few tidbits about Einstein. He was born in Germany in 1879, but moved around a bunch in his life and spent the end of his life in Princeton, NJ. Go America! He was rejected from college at the Swiss Federal Polytechnical School when he first applied at the age of 18. He has to re-take the entrance exams a year later, and was accepted then.


Also, he was in desperate need of a hair style.Einstein3

He did this which seems neat.
