I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.~ Stephen Jay Gould ~
American evolutionary biologist
Time and place. What gives one person the chance and not another? How does one "fall into the family business" of--oh, say...stage and screen. And another fall into the family business of garbage.
Is opportunity made or born?
Surely, there have been others as smart and as talented. What would the world be like if we could recognize them all right here...right now?
We have what it takes to turn the planet toward well-being. We just have to tap the human resources--not just the natural ones.
