I enjoy biographies about real people that have such passion for their chosen field.
Waking up at night ecstatic from dreams about their work is natural for them.
I like his quote: " Parents today say to their children,well if it doesn't work out,you can always come back.What a stupid thing to say,that is why those children are failures"
Tuna dealer said it too: "young people are looking for a job that is easy,with plenty of time off and then expect lots of money"
I wouldn't say he is the hardest working octogenarian,there are those unsung hard working eighty year old people that will never be featured in a documentary.
My own Father is very much like this man,well over 80 and still works from 5:00am till dark and will do so until he breathes his last,because he loves what he is doing.
Very fortunate people,thanks for the recommend,dockweiler.Edited by 5aces - 1/6/13 at 1:40pm
