Einstein was said to be a very slow talker as a child. He is said to not have begun speaking until around the age of five, which worried his parents into believing that he might be "slow." Today the term "Einstein Syndrome" is used to categorize exceptionally bright children who display a delay in speech.
Albert Einstein: "It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it."
Although Einstein will forever be associated with the theory of relativity, his Nobel Prize for Physics was actually awarded to him in 1921 for his observation of the photoelectric effect. Einstein's theory of relativity was not completely accepted by scholars until many years later as it was considered controversial at the time.
