Einstein, perhaps the most famous scientist of all time, was a German physicist of world wide renown, and is regarded as the father of modern physics. Interestingly, as famous as he was no one will ever know his last words!
The day before he died Einstein refused surgery stating, “I want to go when I want. It is tasteless to prolong life artificially. I have done my share, it is time to go. I will do it elegantly.” He survived until the next morning when he passed away at 76. However, just before he passed, he spoke several words in German, yet his nurse knew only English! Who knows, could he have had a brilliant scientific conclusion that he reached? We’ll never know!
