He was offered the presidency of Israel -- and declined.Despite the generous offer, Einstein declined the presidency of Israel in 1952. In his reply, he said: "I am deeply moved by the offer from our State of Israel, and at once saddened and ashamed that I cannot accept it. All my life I have dealt with objective matters, hence I lack both the natural aptitude and the experience to deal properly with people and to exercise official functions."
Einstein died because he said no to life-saving surgery.
His brain was illegally removed from his body and then lost for 50 years.
Contrary to popular belief, he never failed math.

After his first wife, he went on to marry his first cousin, Elsa.
He didn't win the Nobel prize for his most famous theory.Einstein's work on his famous theory of relativity isn't what won him the Nobel prize, it was his "services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect."

One of Einstein's most famous quotes is completely misinterpreted.

I get most joy in life out of music.”
