Enormously popular French author, the founding father of science fiction with H.G. Wells. Verne's stories, written for adolescents as well as adults, caught the enterprising spirit of the 19th century, its uncritical fascination about scientific progress and inventions. His works were often written in the form of a travel book, which took the readers on a voyage to the moon in From the Earth to the Moon (1865) or to another direction as in A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864). Many of Verne's ideas have been hailed as prophetic.
Lee attended a preparatory high school that led him into Harvard at the young age of 16. As an undergraduate he studied philosophy and political science but was still undecided with what he wanted to select as a career.

We need more good scientists in the movies like Dr. Emmitt Brown in the movie trilogy, Back to the Future. Then there is Quantum Leap, I use to love watching this show.

For a class assignment at Morehouse College, Dr. King was introduced to Thoreau’s work “Civil Disobedience.” From this influential work, Dr. King, for the first time, learned of the theory of passive resistance. Thoreau argued that the smallest minority, even just “one honest man,” could start a moral revolution. However, Dr. King was still unsure how to implement this theory until he was a student at Boston University. There, he heard Dr. Mordecai W. Johnson’s lecture on the life of Mahatma Gandhi. Afterward Dr. King said, “The message was so profound and electrifying that I left the meeting and bought a half-dozen books on Gandhi’s life and works.” He spent hours studying and reading Gandhi’s works and found that Gandhi was also inspired by Thoreau’s “Civil
WHEN Robert Penn Warren, the poet, novelist and critic, arrived at Yale in 1927 to pursue his doctoral studies, he lasted in New Haven for just a few months. In 1928, having moved on to Oxford, he wrote to a friend, ''What I really wanted was to get in an environment where men were actually doing creative writing, but Yale is not the place for that, I learned too late.'' The evidence, however, suggests otherwise. Over the last 300 years, many of America's greatest writers have been Yale alumni. Sinclair Lewis, Philip Barry and Thornton Wilder all went to Yale.

After going through the primary election Wilson was not elected but he came back July 2 and was put on the ballot for nominated. Wilson did not know that living in the spotlight would be so hard.
Wilson still took an interest in law though, and so for the next year he studied law on his own. In 1882, Wilson moved to Atlanta to start his own law firm, and was successful passing the Georgia bar exam, which is the exam that is needed to be taken to be approved and licensed to practice law. But his interest in law soon began to fade when a year later he gave up his law firm and enrolled, yet again, to John Hopkins University in Baltimore, as graduate student, and earned his Ph.D. in political science and history
