Albert Einstein: Musician and Physicist


“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music.

I see my life in terms of music… I get most joy in life out of my violin.” -Albert Einstein, 1929


All the b/w photos of Einstein on this site are worth a look. ¬†Good to think that music was such a part of Einstein’s life, and as the comments suggest, central to his inspiration as a physicist.

As one response underscored: “Engineering, medicine, law, business are necessary to sustain life, but poetry, music, love, beauty these are what we stay life for… Keating”
