I’ve passed High school exams with the picture of Dorian Grey even though I had to talk about a completely different topic, Orwell’s 1984 gave me the instructions to use Facebook before Facebook was born, in general the science fiction of the ’70s, It comes to  mind “the god of the 36th floor” or “Aelita”… Bukowski, Baudolino by Uberto Eco … now I read less and less, I downloaded gta V.

What do the words “Passion Never Retires” mean to me?

Often when they recognize your talent people want to reassure you by the fact that “you were born like that” actually it is only a matter of practice and dedication, maybe the passion is innate, once it takes their root as a child it does not go away anymore and also leads you to make great renunciations as an adult. If it is real and genuine.
