Granddaughter of Oleksandr Hrabar Clara Vavra, who is almost 80, says that her Grandpa was a very religious man. She also recalls how once, when talking to him about school, she boasted that she was an excellent student. "I still remember what he replied: "Only mediocre people are excellent students. A talented person can not cover everything, they are interested in something specific and evolve in this direction."Therefore, after that conversation, I stopped to pay so much attention to my grades."
