Albert Einstein

by Lao from Taipei

Known as the smartest person in the world, Albert Einstein wasn't arrogant at all. He kept researching the nature of space and time in his all life.

His formula E=mc2 is the key to building a nuclear power plant. Without his effort, we might not have a lot of electricity to use. Because he devoted all of his life to making the world better, he is the hero in my mind.

While he was known for his achievement in science, I admire him more because of his gratitude and modesty. He once said: "I hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving."

I think he became what he wanted to be, a great man in human history, so we can stand on giant's shoulder and look farther to glimpse the secret of the world. Since he established a pattern for generations of researchers, he becomes an irreplaceable hero in my mind .
