Everyone heard has already heard that Einstein had a bad academic performance.
As a child, the famous scientist was not a child prodigy . Many people doubted that he was a healthy child. His mother even suspected congenital malformation of her child ( Einstein had a big head ) .
At school , where future genius kept distance from the others , he was lazy, slow and almost imcapable. Everybody laughed at him. A teacher said that never and nothing good would come out from that boy.
Albert Einstein did not like sports
Besides swimming (” the sport that requires the least amount of energy”, as Einstein said). He avoided any vigorous activity for the whole his life. Once, the scientist said: “When I come home from work, I do not want to do anything, except work of the mind .”
Albert Einstein solved complicated problems playing the violin.
Einstein had a special way of thinking. He singled out the ideas that were clumsy or disharmonious, based mainly on aesthetic criteria. Then he declared a general principle that would restore harmony. He also made predictions on how the physical objects would behave. This approach gave stunning results.
Did you know that Albert Eimstein liked to smoke a pipe.
Einstein was a life member of the club of Montreal pipe smokers. He was very respectful to the smoking pipe, and believed that it “promotes calm and objective judgment of human affairs.”
As you see, Einstein was rather extra ordinate person. Nevertheless, his scientific discoveries changed the world.
