My Inspirations

These are just a few of the people who inspire me, and why.  My original article turned out to be quite long and boring, so I freshened it up a bit…

This is the story all about how
My life was inspired by some guys renowned
And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there,
I’ll tell you about some scientists, a really skinny guy, and a billionaire

Leonardo da Vinci

As the quintessential Renaissance man, da Vinci amazed,
Indulging in various forms of art, science, and engineering is how he spent most of his days
From his example, viewing life from all sides became my rule
Even if knowing the meaning of “public static void main(String args[]){}” makes me uncool :/

Mohandas Gandhi

When the English were up to no good and started making trouble in his neighborhood,
Gandhi won using no bombs, no bullets, and no food
He taught me to always be calm when chaos ensues and tempers are flared
Even when your lawn gets destroyed over the weekend by the alcohol-impaired:


Nikola Tesla

In visionary concepts like wireless electricity, Tesla was a pioneer
But, (true story) he also created a machine that gave the user spontaneous diarrhea
Through him I’ve learned that if you want a car with a license plate that says “fresh” and a dice in the mirror,
abundant passion for one’s work can make an extraordinary career
(but having too much…is a bit like substituting tequila for light beer)

Elon Musk

Paypal, Tesla Motors, and SpaceX –Elon Musk’s companies’ earnings (in billions) are about seven or eight
He could drive his own electric car to his own spaceship while shouting “Yo holmes, smell ya later!”
One day, I hope to be an artist, builder, and inventor extraordinaire
But why settle for being the prince of Bel-air when there’s a whole universe out there?
