They showed incredible energy and flexibility and were not afraid to stand out from the crowd. Their bursts of creativity will live on forever, and you hunters reading this will instantly identify with them.

A number of them also appear to have had learning disabilities. Of the first three listed, Edison's mother, recognizing her son just learned differently, home schooled him; Einstein flunked math in the sixth grade; Mozart was lousy at personal relationships.
