Einstein's purpose and inspiration in life I would say was to make his father think he was successful. His father died before Einstein amounted to anything or so he thought. Einstein always felt he was a failure in his fathers eyes. I think Einstein was motivated by the fact that he wanted to amount to something for his father.
A lot of Einstein's life was lived in seclusion. A lot of the seclusion in his life led to problems that could have been avoided if he chose not to be a recluse. If he chose to be more social he could have been a better influence on others and the world and could have been a lot happier throughout his life.
I don’t feel like Einstein and I have anything in common. However the only things I could think of is that for a brief time in his life God was important to Einstein which is important to me. The other thing that related to me is that Einstein was of course great at math and loved it and I am good at it and I like algebra.
Einstein lived a great life and contributed greatly to modern day science and specifically modern day physics. Einstein made modern day physics into what it is today. Einstein could have made more of a contribution if he was more sociable and not a recluse. His whole life he tried to be successful so he could show his father he amounted to something.
