“Later, Tell reminisced, ‘I am German. Over there they do things different. In my apprenticeship I was allowed to make any mistake—once. Then, the second time, they kick you where you don’t like it.’
“Despite the circumstances tossed at him, Tell never flashed back like a bullwhip with a rebellious streak of vicious behavior. Instead, with every obtuse turn of his journey he redoubled his resolve and pushed after his dream. He stayed the course through a gauntlet of flying objects and dissuasive people, which tried its best to discourage him. He out-worked his peers and his handlers.”
