    Could be true in some cases. I think that was the case for the guy who invented the variable speed windshield wiper. I saw a movie about how GM ripped him off and eventually they had to pay him a lot for using his idea.

    But they tried to brush him off, doing the things you mentioned above

    When the court day finally came along, the inventor won the suite.

      Wow! That adds lots of sense into this saying. We actually need not watch what or how people take or think of us, we rather focus on believing ourselves and work hard and smart to prove them wrong.

    The road to the victory is always very long and difficult

    Very well said, and there is much sense in this saying!

    This quote from Mahatma Gandhi described how his movement eventually achieved victory despite being ridiculed and looked down on.

    Well, I hope this quote too will be inspirational to many:

    “Insults are like angry bulls… they can only do damage if
    you let them in. You can’t control what people say, but you
    can control if you let it bother you. No one’s opinion of you
    is more important than your own.”
