The amazing thing about Leo was his modesty in regards to his various talents. There were few things Leo wasn’t good at, and he always shared his passion for music, good books and circus tricks with the rest of the people around.
I came to meet a lot of people like Leo on my travels, who seemed to be so interested and good at everything – that in the end – they seemed to feel like they were advancing in nothing. He was a dreamer with a curious mind that hadn't found his place in a world that is too orientated for career monogamists.
Sometimes I feel the same - but maybe I need to remind myself that we don’t always need to advance in the direction of what pays us a good career. Maybe, what pays off more is advancing in the direction of what makes us dream...And not the kind of dreams that make us crave for holidays or rest, but quite the opposite, the kind of dreams that keep you awake at night…Some of the biggest thinkers of today did something meaningful in this world not because they were chasing reality, but because they were chasing dreams I think - and Leo's quote is a hopeful reminder of that.
