There’s a sparkle in their wide eyes. They gesture wildly, and talk so quickly it’s like their tongues can never catch up with the thoughts in their heads and neither can you. Yes, sometimes they lose you. Actually, a lot of times they lose you.
But there is something about passionate people that I find quite fascinating. When they speak they get so carried away by the ocean tides of their ideas, they are unanchored, and they tend to pull you with them. In real time, as you listen to them, you might actually be captivated by their manner of speech even if you understand nothing from the content.
Another thing is passionate people are quite rare to find. A lot of reasons contribute to this. A lot of times people are passionate about things they are not really exposed to in their daily lives, so maybe they don’t talk to those around them about what makes them passionate because they think others won’t be interested. Sometimes people do not even know what they are passionate about in the first place, and so they have nothing to talk about.
So if you find that one person, and they start speaking, do not interrupt. Just listen to them. Maybe you’ll get inspired.
