billionaires, and not even geniuses - ever makes it alone,(P.115)". One can conclude from this that the support - system is the determiner whether or not you can be successful. Malcolm Gladwell writes about a man named Robert Oppenheimer and how he became successful through knowledge, hard work, and support.

Benjamin Banneker died on October 9, 1806 in Boston. Without his skills with math and science, the world would not be so far advance in the predictions and studies of astronomical events due to his calculations (published in almanac), and oddly, the world would know less about the connection cicada’s have with math. And these are his most significant contributions to math! We as a society would probably have low understanding of astronomical calculations. Banneker definitely is an underappreciated mathematician with a giant offering to the

After the ordinary Germans citizens combined in a joint effort to “[consider] ways of fighting the Nazis and building a new Germany after the war,” they “placed a briefcase containing explosives under a massive table around which Hitler and his staff were scheduled to meet later that day” (“From Bystanders to Resisters” 374). Although they were unsuccessful in assassinating Hitler and his accomplices, because the table blunted the explosion, they came closer to success than any upstander who stood by himself. Unlike the lonely upstanders during the Holocaust, these members had one another’s help in order to plan a method of rebellion. Despite the plan having failed, it was only because they could not foresee the inadequate position of
The reason why I think this is because he is a very selfish person. Cassius couldn’t even bare himself to commit suicide, he had to have someone else stab him. Also the main reason why he didn’t like Caesar in the first place was because he didn’t understand why Caesar got to be king over anyone else. Cassius is also very manipulative, he basically uses Brutus’ good for bad and turns him into a bad person a little bit.

Interestingly, that is all solid evidence can trace about Hess’s life-his story remains a mystery after his arrival in Scotland. There are two main conspiracy theories concerning his death after his advent: confidential assassination and straightforward suicide. Rudolf Hess’s life was full of mystery, but throughout time, scholars
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds." Albert Einstein arguably one of the smartest beings to walk the planet Earth said this. When the professor who revolutionized physics with his General Theory of Relativity was 16, the head of his Munich school wrote in a damning report: “He will never amount to anything.” Einstein, who died in 1955 aged 76 after a career garlanded with honors including a Nobel Prize, clearly took the criticism on the chin. This story shows how Albert Einstein overcame adversity, and throughout all the hate, Einstein listened to his heart and did what he truly wanted to do. In the novel Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, Achebe demonstrates how one's life leads them on a journey
