Sometime ago Apple computer company came out with a famous advertisement called “Think Different”.
I will transcribe the voice-over for you:
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do”.
These people are also called unreasonable people. The human race would not have progressed this well without these unreasonable people willing to push forward.
Some of the unreasonable people come to my mind are:
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Valentina Tereshkova (first woman in space)
Maria Callas (greatest opera singer of the 20th century)
Dr. Joseph E. Murray (performed the first successful kidney transplant operation)
Amelia Earhart (aviation pioneer)
Yuri Gagarin (first human in space)
Roger Bannister (first human to run a mile under 4 minutes)
If you want to add any unreasonable person, please include his/her name in your comment.
