Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of relativity one of the two pillars of modern physics (quantum mechanics).While best known for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2 he received the 1921 Nobel prize in physics for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.

- "A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."― Albert Einstein
- "God does not care about our mathematical difficulties. He integrates empirically." ― Albert Einstein
Sir Isaac Newton (25 December 1642 – 20 March 1727) was an English physicist and mathematician who is widely regarded as one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution. His book Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica("Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy"), first published in 1687, laid the foundations for most of classical mechanics. Newton also made seminal contributions to optics and shares credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the invention of the infinitesimal calculus.
- "I see I have made my self a slave to Philosophy."
- "Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things."
William Shakespeare (26 April 1564 – 23 April 1616) was an English poet and playwright, was born and brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon , widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, two epitaphs on a man named John Combe, one epitaph on Elias James, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.
