This is the culmination of what is the current establishment. Those that do not find their place cannot even conceive an alternative life. I do not blame him, I pity him.

Makes you wonder where Einstein would be if born in today's society. Hell, even back then he almost became an insurance salesman. Such a waste of human potential. I wonder how many brilliant minds we've squandered and thrown away

Einstein dropped out of school and was told by teachers he would never amount to anything. With that in mind, he'd probably be flipping burgers.

All of them, before we were told we had to make something of ourselves as to make the next guy money. Imagine what we would be thinking about in school and beyond if no one told us we had to become something in order to succeed.

Same here. It was sad that he could not pursue his dream, and that there was no help for him at all. I really understand his pain. It is like that pain that an artist has. Maybe worse.

Yes pity is the right word. Crazy times we live in. See a need fill a need.
