Hermann and Pauline lived in the German town of Ulm where they ran a small enterprise that produced featherbeds. Though their success was marginal, they branched in to gas boilers and began toying with electrical products. All the time they were worried about their son, Al, who seemed to have a learning disability. He didn’t start speaking until he was nearly three, and he preferred playing by himself with his puzzles. He spent hours building houses of cards. He could entertain himself endlessly with a simple compass. But in school it took him a long time to solve problems, and teachers who expected a quick answer were disappointed at his plodding work.
One day Hermann was given the bad news. Albert was virtually hopeless. “It doesn’t matter what he does,” said the boy’s teacher bluntly, “he will never amount to anything.”
Hermann and Pauline needn’t have worried. Young Albert Einstine did just fine.
Don’t let the enemy of this world try and tell you, “You’ll never make it.” With God nothing is impossible.
