In the grand sense he made warfare so terrible to wage, world wars are hopefully things of the past. When asked how WW III would be waged, Albert said,
"I don't know the details, but WW IV will be waged with sticks and stones"
In a personal sense he was the typical genius. Like Newton and many other intellectual giants, he was forced to live with smaller minds in what must have seemed very confining circumstances at times. I suppose it would be like an ordinary man forced to live amongst chimpanzees.
