Scientists are believed to be people who have an eccentric personality. The famous physicist Albert Einstein is a glowing example. There are number of stories which point towards this. One such instance is where Einstein's wife would ask him to dress professionally for work. The scientist would reply, “Why should I? Everyone knows me there.” She could never implore him to do otherwise. 

The famous scientist gave us the theory of relativity and it was natural to be asked to explain the concept. Einstein had an interesting answer to this.

“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour,” he would say.
“Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute.
That’s relativity!”
