A star and an outcast

Reading A Beautiful Mind 

“After a year or so, after he had acquired a reputation for being a genius, he began to hold court in Skibo Hall, the student center. Like the fairground magician with his swords, he would sit in a chair and challenge other students to throw problems at him to solve. A lot of students came to him with their homework. He was a star-but an outcast also.”-from the -A Beautiful Mind,the life of mathematical genius and Nobel prize winner, by Sylvia Nasar.
Have a nice weekend.
