Time after time, those who possessed a thought process that transcends the so-called “box” and revolutionary creativity were both respected and shunned. A genius is someone who has the ability to stir the world yet ignored by the general population. Because of that reason, it is often the case that people do not recognise the true value of a genius and miss out on the golden chance of borrowing his or her abilities. Also, many geniuses cannot shine and be accepted, living a lonely life; this will be the case until someone else who understands their ways and accepts it for what it is.
Like this, human society tends to have its pearls buried in the mud, and superficially appears only as putrid dung most of the time.
