Turned down for a job you wanted?

A family member reminded me today:

A young computer scientist interviewed at Facebook for a programming job and was rejected. He later started Whatsapp and sold it to Facebook for $17 billion.

Hence the saying:  "sweet are the uses of adversity."

To which we say:  Amen.
