The Einstein you never knew

Something from here:

Einstein, who was never able to recall his own phone number, was famous for not memorizing anything that could be quickly and easily looked up in a standard reference volume. "Never memorize what you can look up in books," he said.

Einstein loved sailing -- but never learned to swim.

The day Einstein died
Когда ему говорили, что он плохо играет на скрипке - он сильно обижался, а вот когда говорили, что он плохой физик - пропускал мимо ушей :)
