Einstein said many profound things in his time on earth, and this one is just that. 

Everybody has some reason for being here. With some people, their talent or ability is more than obvious, but with others you may wonder about the reason for them being here. Don't worry, there is a reason. There is something that they are here to learn or to teach. Some are noted for their brain, their beauty, their compassion for others, their generosity of spirit or financial generosity, and still others for their personality. These are talents or gifts that they have been blessed with. You don't have to have all the trappings of our society to be vital.   

For example: we can't look at the math star in school and assume that the others are less than him. Even though he wins every prize available, it doesn't mean he is any greater as a person than the one that had to repeat the year. The student that was held back may be just the right person to show the class or a particular person, something that no one else could. 

Every person on earth is valuable for being exactly who they are. They are necessary and important. You cannot judge one person by another person's attributes. 'If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid' 

No two people are exactly alike, they don't think the same or act the same. There is simply no way to compare them, it's like apples and oranges; EVEN if they are both your children. They are not clones, they are a completely different mixture of genes. 

Accept each person for who they are, eliminate expectation and comparison, and revel in the differences among us. You never know who people will grow into.  "Everybody is a genius."
