I have always believed that the world has had very few true geniuses. My definition of a genius has been one who changes the world in a fundamental way, often against the thinking of the society at the time.
Sir Isaac Newton. For his laws of motion. Albert Einstein, of course. Wolfgang Mozart, who started composing at age 5, and whose compositions are still enjoyed over 200 years later.
There is a component of perseverance and lots of work to change the world. I read somewhere that Thomas Edison tried 1,000 different ways to make the incandescent light bulb until hitting the right formula.
“Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Great accomplishments depend not so much on ingenuity as on hard work. This is a saying of the American inventor Thomas Edison.”
