Only after his release was he able to return to normal life and start his literary career. His novel The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha is recognized as one of the greatest works of world literature.
Ludwig van Beethoven
When he was 26, Ludwig began to lose his hearing. But this circumstance didn’t prevent him from composing. When he had almost stopped hearing, he wrote the Moonlight Sonata; and, being totally deaf, a bagatelle named Fur Elise (which we often hear coming from music boxes).
Thanks to his talent and strong will he learned to listen to the music inside him, and having written Symphony No. 9, he conducted the concert by himself. After a triumphant performance, he started crying. ’There are no barriers for a person with talent and love towards work,’ Beethoven said.
When Einstein was a small child, it was difficult to assume that he would succeed in life. Einstein didn’t speak until the age of three and, moreover, he was autistic and dyslexic. At high school he often skipped classes, and that’s why he didn’t graduate.
