Pi Day: A Celebration of Mathematics

There is a day each year that is all about numbers: on 14 March, we celebrate the mathematical constant π (pi).

The Greek letter “π is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern.” – but before you’d lose the train of thought, let us tell you another piece of information that makes this date significant: on this very day in 1879, a genius was born in the German Empire. To commemorate the birthday of Albert Einstein, we collected some of his most famous quotes!

“No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.”

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”

“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.”

“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.”

“Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.”

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
