“From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that we are here for the sake of each other - above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.”  - Albert Einstein

Einstein's personal life is such an enigma. On the one hand, he was not only a dedicated scientist, but a true humanitarian; on the other, he was quite negligent of the personal relationships in his life. That seems to be common with great men; they are wonderful to everyone but those closest to them.
