Einstein Quotes on Education & Science:
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.

It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.

The man of science is a poor philosopher.

Often considered as the most intelligent man to ever have lived on the planet, Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist. His mass-energy equivalence formula (E=mc2), has been dubbed as the most famous equation of the world. Also, he was the author of more than 300 scientific papers and more than 150 non-scientific works.
Einstein was born in Germany. He moved to Switzerland in 1895 and renounced his German citizenship in 1896. He became a Swiss citizen in 1901 and received American citizenship in 1940.
In 1900, Einstein published his first paper. 1905 proved to be a miracle year for Einstein. That year, while working at the Swiss Patent Office, he published four groundbreaking papers on Brownian motion, special relativity, the photoelectric effect, and the equivalence of mass and energy. These papers attracted the attention of the academic world. He received a PhD from the University of Zurich the next year.
Einstein developed the theory of relativity, which alongside quantum mechanics forms the two pillars of modern physics. For the discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory, Einstein received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics.
