Well his all success and glory u can find it on web but what made a small poor child to a greatest inventor of world?

I heard a small story about it.
Hope you like it,
—————————–

One day Thomas Edison came home
and gave a paper to his mother. He
told her, “My teacher gave this paper
to me and told me to only give it to
my mother.”
His mother’s eyes were tearful as
she read the letter out loud to her
child:
“Your son is a genius. This
school is too small for him and
doesn’t have enough good teachers
for training him. Please teach him
yourself.”

After many, many years, after
Edison’s mother died and he was
now one of the greatest inventors of
the century, one day he was looking
through old family things. Suddenly
he saw a folded paper in the corner
of a drawer in a desk. He took it and
opened it up. On the paper was
written: Your son is addled [mentally
ill]. We won’t let him come to school
any more.
Edison cried for hours and then he
wrote in his diary: “Thomas Alva
Edison was an addled child that, by a
hero mother, became the genius of
the century.”
