"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education"
Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Germany to a Jewish couple. While having initial complications with a misshapen head during child birth, he grew normally. However it was commented by Albert Einstein's relatives that he was a little slow. Einstein's lack of intelligent was shown by his late age of learning how to speak. His first formal education (besides the private education he received before school) was at a Catholic school in Munich . This institution was short-lived because of Einstein's taste and disagreements with the professor. He left the school and Ulm Germans and moved to Milan .
While in Milan , Einstein wanted to continue his primary education, and in 1895 took his entrance exam to ETH in Zurich . His scores were not sufficient enough to allow him to enter the primary school, instead he went to a community school in the nearby city of Aarau . In 1896 he received his school certificate and enrolled ETH with intentions in becoming a mathematics or physics teacher. Einstein got average marks while in ETH and received his diploma in 1900, is GPA was 4.6 out of 6.0. Einstein eagerly applied to numerous Universities, looking for an assistantship but was denied to all of them. While looking for a school for higher education, Einstein gave up his German citizenship and applied for a Swiss one instead. He was given Swiss citizenship in 1901.
Einstein was desperate for work, for a year he was a teacher at a Technical High School in Winterthur and a private school in Schaffhausen, and soon afterward he moved to the Switzerland capital, Bern . Work was till difficult to find in Switzerland and Einstien found himself teaching private lessons in math and physics. With the difficulties with making a living being a tutor Einstein applied to be a patent clerk at Bernese patent-office. He worked at the patent office in the day and studied theoretical physics in his time off.
"When you sit with a nice girl for two hours, it seems like two minutes. When you sit on a hot stove for two minutes, it seems like two hours that's relativity."
In 1905 Einstein published five revolutionary papers in the scientific magazine "Annalen der Physik". In April of that same year, Einstein submitted his doctorial thesis, "A New Determination of Molecular Dimensions". Some of the other papers that he published include his famous article "On A Heuristic Point of View Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light" in which Einstein described the electromagnetic radiations of light by using Max Planck's quantum hypothesis. Einstein states that "in order for an electron to be removed from the cathode, a given quantity of energy had to be delivered to the atom". This revolutionary publication won him the Nobel Prize in 1921.
Another one of his papers was "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" in which Einstein...
