James Watt knuckled down and wanted to learn everything he wanted in one year that would have normally taken three or four years. After six weeks Watt learned that much he outstripped another apprentice who had been at Cornhill for two years! After the apprenticeship Watt found it hard to set up shop in London and due to his father's ill health decided to spend some time at Greenock. He then moved to Glasgow where there was a job vacant in cleaning and repairing newly imported scientific instruments. The University of Glasgow then arranged for James Watt to set up shop inside one of their university buildings where he met his future long-life friends Dr. Joseph Black and Professor John Robison both planning to be chemists.
The largest debt, that owed by John's employer, the Earl of Lowther, amounted to nearly $5,000 of that sum, and would not be paid to the Wordsworths for 19 years. The kids were turned over to their uncles who weren’t exactly overjoyed with the new addition to their household. They paid for William to go to Cambridge, where he did very well his first year, but soon realized Cambridge was not the place for him. He chose his own course of studies from then on, and graduated shortly thereafter. After graduation, Wordsworth wandered through France.

A family friend, the Abbé Thélson, found two job opportunities for Messier, the first with the curator of the palace, the second with an astronomer. Finally Hyacinthe chose a job for Charles, the second, with an astronomer because Hyacinthe believed it would be better for Charles. On September 23, 1751 Messier left Badonviller to Paris for his first day at work.

John Stuart Mills John Stuart Mill was one of the most well regarded and widely renowned philosophers and economists in history. He was considered a philosophical genius by the age of 20, and was mainly taught only by his father. His father believed that he should be educated and be taught many different languages and philosophies to become a well-rounded individual.

Not long after he recovered he showed how different he was than his father and began writing in the Westminster review.
What was ironic was that he lived a comfortable life and probably never complained then, but the minute he realized that he was dying, he instantaneously held her accountable for the fact that he never wrote any more works. I could not understand why on earth he would blame her for this, other than the fact that he probably did not write much because he never found the urgency to. They were already wealthy, thanks to Helen. His wife, on the other hand, did love him even if the love was not shared. She remained optimistic throughout the entire ordeal, and she treated him exceedingly well during his final hours on earth.
The industrial revolution in Britain had already begun. In the mean time Napoleon matured quickly and reached the height of five feet five and was pale and thin. He did not care very much for anything in his younger days, everything from eating meals to socializing he did alone.

At 14 Napoleon decided to pursue a military career and won a scholarship to a French military academy.
