• Commemorating Albert Einstein's death on April 18, 1955 after refusing surgery for internal bleeding. "I want to go when I want. It is tasteless to prolong life artificially. I have done my share, it is time to go. I will do it elegantly."

• Another wry Einsteinism: “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?”

• “If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.” — Albert Einstein

• Einstein successfully challenged his hero Sir Issac Newton’s theory of gravitational pull. “Objects are pushed, not pulled,” as theoretical physicist Michio Kaka explains. “The earth has curved a space around me, and space is pushing (not pulling) me into this chair.” Watch the 3-minute video above and perhaps be surprised by what you'll unlearn. 

Einstein aficionados will enjoy the 90-minute bio above narrated by the incomparably clear Michio Kaka
