I remember my science class in high school where I first read or heard about Mendel and his genetic discoveries. What stuck with me then, and does today, is this guy’s meticulous work. He spent a lot of time testing his theories in the slow, experimental gardens of his monastery.
What I didn’t know, or had forgotten, is that he wasn’t properly recognized for his achievements during his lifetime.
For all you writers, scientists, and artist slaving away, take heart. It may be awhile, but eventually, your hard work will touch the world in ways you can’t even imagine.
