Did You Know About Einstein’s Secret Love?

That’s right, one of the most notable geniuses of our era spent a lot of his free time nurturing this love, and it was this muse that would actually bring him the inspiration he needed to solve the complex mathematical problems he. But who or what was this secret love?

It was his love of playing a musical instrument, the violin. While working, Einstein often found that playing the violin improved his concentration and focus. In his own words, Einstein said “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music, I live my daydreams in music, I see my life in terms of music…”

He was introduced to music early in his life, and although he didn’t fall in love with it immediately, he quickly changed his mind when he discovered the fascinating mathematical structure of music. The writer and journalist Walter Isaacson, wrote in one of Einstein’s most popular biographies that whenever he faced difficult challenges in his work, he would take refuge in music, which would end up helping him solve the problems at hand. Einstein often played his violin late at night, where he would improvise melodies while contemplating difficult problems. Suddenly, in the middle of playing, he would stop and excitedly announce he had solved the problem!


What can we learn from Einstein’s passion for music? Music is a wonderful way to spend your free time. It is not only entertaining like TV programs, but it actually also engages your brain in an extraordinary symphony that can involve most regions of the brain. Do you play any instrument? Does it help with your other activities? Leave your comments below.
