Thank God for a Handicap

One of the greatest artists for a large magazine is color blind. He hires a man to mix his paints: his mixer tells  which paint is red, blue, yellow. And this man has the reputation of being a colourist.

People who really excelled in a certain field very often have reached their eminence just because they had overcome the handicaps with which they started out.

Demosthenes stuttered. He filled his mouth with pebbles and walked the seashore shouting at the waves until in spite of his handicap he became Greece's most famous orator.

To England, Nelson is the greatest naval hero. Yet he never conquered the seasickness which assailed him the first time he took to the water and kept recurring all his life whenever he boarded a ship.
