Recently, a trove of new letters and manuscripts written by Albert Einstein were published online, and we’re already noticing some exciting letters, like this one addressed to Marie Curie. The gist of it is simple “ignore the trolls”.┬áThis 103-year-old letter from Albert Einstein to Marie Curie uses much more elegant language to tell her to continue with her work and just ignore all the haters. Here is the translated version:

“The note was published free online this week, along with thousands of other pieces of Einstein’s writing, as part of the open-access Digital Einstein Papers project. The project aims to help disseminate the extensive written legacy of one of the greatest minds in physics to the public”, Science Alert writes.
