What does "To be great is to be misunderstood" by Emerson mean exactly?

I think he meant something along the lines of this: In 1920 in London, at a conference of the world's greatest physicists...someone remarked to Einstein that only three men understood the concept of Relativity, to which Einstein replied "Who are the other two"?
