 "The absolute worthlessness of the theory of conventional pursuit in life is indisputably written in the lives of great men who succeeded in their work in spite of all the dire predictions of conventionalists."

He uses the example of Audobon who spent three quarters of his life as a workman and only when he was 60 started painting.
