There Is Hope For Everyone

A barber invented the old-time spinning wheel.
A farmer experimented and worked during the long winter nights, and finally brought forth the invention of calico in its many pretty colors.
A gardener spent his evenings studying architecture and became famous while working in his employer's garden.
A blacksmith earned his living working at his trade, and, in his-spare time, learned eighteen languages and twenty-two dialects, which brought him money and fame.
 A baker became one of the world's distinguished astronomers.
A common printer discovered electricity with two sticks and a silk handkerchief, probably having borrowed the latter.
 A shoe cobbler became a great naturalist while working at his bench.
