David And Goliath: Chapter Three (Caroline Sacks) by Malcolm Gladwell
=> Key takeaway (page 95)…
“His story was almost word for word the same as Caroline Sack’s, and hearing it a second time made it plain how remarkable the achievement of the Impressionists really was. They were artistic geniuses. But they were also possessed of a rare wisdom about the world. They were capable of looking at what the rest of us thought of as a great advantage, and seeing it for what it really was. Monet, Degas, Cezanne, Renoir and Pissarro would have gone to their second choice.”
Note: This paragraph struggles a bit from being out of context. Agreed. but of course, you can always read the book in full yourself.
