The Drawing: Pencil drawing is an art of recreating images. This image happens to be on a paper by virtue of using tip of a pencil and imagination of an artist. If the shading is added into it, the drawing becomes a painting in monochrome, one color painting. In the above drawing, the artist has not used the value drawing, as is done to make a portrait making; instead he has used the technique of line drawing.

"Not everything that can be counted counts,
and not everything that counts
can be counted."
- Albert Einstein

In addition of being the pioneer scientist Einstein was a great philosopher to be reckoned with. He was so simple in thinking, as he believed that "if anything is new, and we cannot explain it to a child of six, it means we do not understand the same". He was one of the great mathematicians of the world. However he believed that"If you have any difficulty in understanding mathematics, do not worry. I face much difficulties than you". He believed in doing new things constantly and trying new ideas. He said that "those who have never made a mistake, they have never tried anything new".

His thoughts about the existence of God were like this : with my limited human mind,I am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views.
