Examples of Albert in a Sentence

  1. Albert Einstein:

    Isn’t it strange that I who have written only unpopular books should be such a popular fellow. Chirology may be one of the vital sciences of the future. ~ Albert Einstein (“Seeing into the Future” ~ Harvey Day) I hate crowds and making speeches. I hate facing cameras and having to answer to a crossfire of questions. Why popular fancy should seize upon me, a scientist, dealing in abstract things and happy if left alone, is a manifestation of mass psychology that is beyond me. I am neither especially clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious. The ideals that have lighted my way and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty and Truth. The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. When his wife asked him to change clothes to meet the German Ambassador: “they want to see me, here I am. If they want to see my clothes, open my closet and show them my suits.

  2. Prince Harry:

    I’m somewhat ashamed of the way that I dealt with it, and of course, because of the system that we were in and the responsibilities and the duties that we had, we had a quick cuddle and then we had to get changed to jump in a convoy with a police escort and drive to the Royal Albert Hall for a charity event. Then step out into a wall of cameras and pretend as though everything’s OK.

  3. Prashant Agarwal:

    Do you know greatness is not an inborn talent? Yes, It is not an inborn talent, people are not born with all those virtues which made them great. It only comes from inner desire, grit, and determination to accomplish extraordinary things, which makes them great. It commences from setting a goal, chalking out plans for its fulfillment, and giving your best to attain and last but not the least, is your belief and your optimistic nature. You can’t achieve success overnight. So, never be afraid of taking risks and embracing failure. You have to pour loads of effort and incessant hard work to reach a stage you would have always dreamt of. Our history is profused with a plethora of instances of great men and women who inspire us to touch the sky. Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Thomas Edison, and many others have proved that you can do anything you put your mind to and become great.

  4. James Earl Jones:

    I agree with my father, Albert Einstein, don't believe every quote you read on the internet.

  5. Michael Hershman:

    The whole thing is ridiculous, albert Einstein said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and again and expecting different results.
