Сочинение по теме There are outstanding people in all countries, aren’t there?

As for me, the saying is true. A talent doesn’t need any special conditions to appear. Abilities call for developing but being a genius doesn’t have anything to do with the education or cultural background of a person. The thing which amazes us in people who are exceptionally talented is that they can do something which other people have to learn how to do. Moreover, they seem to be capable of doing things which are new to most of us and are not taught anywhere. We are brought up with the idea that it is normal not to be able to do something if you haven’t been shown how to do it. If someone turns out to be able to do the untaught, we are ready to call them outstanding and I would say that it is fair enough. Not many people have ever heard about Joseph Conrad. He was a Pole who wrote in English. He is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English, though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties (and always with a marked accent). He was a master prose stylist who brought a distinctly non-English sensibility into English literature. The fact that a non native speaker may become a prominent writer in this language demonstrates that there are no limits if you want to succeed and any society have some people to take pride in.

1. Have you ever talked to a well-known person?

I haven’t travelled much so far, so my chances of meeting someone famous have never been really high. I hope when I grow up I’ll go to a big city where I may run into someone famous.

2. Who do you think can be called an outstanding person?

In my opinion, an outstanding person is someone who did something useful. I mean a scientist whose discovery has been practical and eased lives of ordinary people. I mean inventions such as those of the telephone and the electric bulb.

3. What famous public figures of Belarus do you know?

I am not really interested in politic. The only politician I know is our president. Celebrities are come and go people so I take no interest in them.

4. Would you like to be popular and famous?

If you are popular and famous you will have to be under constant pressure. Many people will try to take private photos, journalists will be asking you unpleasant personal questions. As I don’t want to suffer from these things I prefer not to be famous though I don’t mind being well-off.
