In 1931 Charlie Chaplin invited Albert Einstein, who was visiting Hollywood, to a private screening of his new film, City Lights. As the two men drove into town together, passersby waved and cheered.

Chaplin turned to his guest and explained: “The people are applauding you because none of them understands you and applauding me because everybody understands me.”

One of Einstein’ s colleagues asked him for his telephone number one day. Einstein reached for a telephone directory and looked it up. “You don’t remember your own number ? “the man asked, startled.

“No,” Einstein answered. “Why should I memorise  something I can so easily get from a book?” (In fact, Einstein claimed never to memorise anything which could be looked up in less than two  minutes.)
