Hail to the King
He proposed the Theory of Relativity, and the Theory of Gravity. His contributions to Astronomy were broad, with the suggestion of lightspeed, and the fact that everything had an effect on everything.
He failed his Math and Physics classes, and many people didn't listen to his brilliant ideas (at first...). He was also of Jewish descent, and had much difficulty surviving Hitler during WW2.
~He was named Person of the Century by TIME magazine.~He was a High School dropout.~Hitler considered him public enemy #1.~He turned away from the offer to become president of Isreal.~Some of his favorite hobbies were sailing and playing the violin.
After refusing the office of President of Isreal, he said-"Try not to become a man of success, but rather a man of value."
