"I'm not smart at school..."

Albert Einstein - couldn't speak until he was 4, couldn't read until he was 7, and was advised to drop out of grade school

Winston Churchill - failed the 6th grade

Lucille Ball - was dismissed from drama school for being quiet and shy

Henry Ford - barely squeaked through high school

Isaac Newton - did poorly in math

Ludwig van Beethoven - was once told by his music teacher, "as a composer, he is hopeless."

I love this. I totally believe it's not all about how smart you are, but how hard you work, how passionate you are and how dedicated you are that really makes you succed.
