Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.

On April 18, 1955, the great mathematician and physicist Albert Einstein died.
He was 76 years old. Although Einstein’s body was cremated, his brain was saved.
Dr. Thomas S. Harvey, a pathologist at Princeton Hospital, removed Einstein’s brain on the morning of Einstein’s death.
What happened to the brain for years after this is somewhat of a mystery.Please click here to know more about Albert Einstein and his Brain….Please watch here and enjoy his real portrait:Courtesy You tube:
Time Line of Einstein’s Life
1879: Albert Einstein is born to Hermann Einstein (a featherbed
salesman) and his wife Pauline in Ulm, Germany.
1884: Around this time, Albert receives his first compass,
beginning his quest to investigate the natural world.
1889: At age 10, Albert sets into a program of self education and
reads as much about science as he can.
1894: The Einsteins move from Munich to Pavia, Italy and
Albert, 15, stays on in Munich to finish the school year. Albert
lasts only a term on his own and follows his family to Pavia.
1895: Albert attempts to skip high school by taking an entrance
exam to the Swiss Polytechnic, a top technical university, but he
fails the arts portion. His family sends him to the Swiss town of
Aarau to finish high school.
1896: Albert graduates from high school at the age of 17 and
enrolls at the ETH (the Federal Polytechnic) in Zurich.
1898: Albert falls in love with Mileva Maric, a Hungarian
classmate at the ETH.
1900: Albert graduates from the ETH.
1901: Albert becomes a Swiss citizen. Unemployed, he searches
for work. He and Mileva meet in northern Italy for a tryst.
Mileva becomes pregnant. In the fall, Albert finds work in
Schaffhausen, Switzerland as a tutor. Mileva, visibly pregnant,
moves to Stein Am Rhein, three miles upriver. Mileva then moves
to Hungary to give birth to their baby at her parent’s home.
Albert moves to Bern.
1902: In January, Mileva gives birth to their daughter, Lieserl,
whom they eventually put up for adoption. She reportedly
becomes ill and then all record of her disappears. Albert takes a
job at the Swiss Patent Office. Hermann Einstein becomes ill and
1903: Albert and Mileva marry in January
1904: Mileva gives birth to their first son, Hans Albert.
1905: “Annus Mirabilis” — Einstein’s “Miracle Year”: his Special
Theory of Relativity is born. June 30th, Einstein, submits his
paper, “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies” to the leading

and energy and formulates the equation e=mc2.

Theory of Relativity.
