The prizes eventually go to those who persevere

When Dino De Laurentis was looking for a lead actress for his movie, King Kong, his son asked him to interview a young actress named Meryl Streep. He took one look at her and said to his son, in Italian, ‘Why do you bring me this ugly thing?’ What he didn’t know was that she spoke Italian and understood what he was saying. But she didn’t allow his contempt to ruin her dream. She went on to become the most esteemed actress of her generation, and holds the industry record for the most Academy Award acting nominations. Years later she said of that encounter: ‘the most liberating thing I did early on was to free myself from any concern with my looks.’
In the great drama of life, the prizes eventually go to those who persevere, believing in themselves no matter how many times they get put down.
