Find something you are passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it. - Julia Child.
i began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life...if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be" - roald dahl
This reminds me of Tanya's father and how he took his job seriously and with great passion, not letting others do it for him, but letting them do it with him.
