I was taken out of school by my dad when I was 11 and lived in Mexico City, then later in Paris. I went with him to excavate in Bolivia and Peru. I never finished high school. I was a straight F student anyway. My father admitted to me later that he'd thought I would come to no good.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
