Happy Birthday Albert Einstein

With all the attention being given to Pi today, I thought it important to recognize a great scientist's birthday.

One of my favorite post cards is a photo of Einstein with this quote at the bottom..

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

I recall a quote in which he was trying to explain relativity.

'sit next to a pretty woman and an hour seems like a minute. Sit on a hot stove and a minute seems like an hour.'

Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves. Albert Einstein

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.

Happy Birthday Einstein!
