A Love of Learning
He liked learning. I think that's where I got it from. He was an addict. His library was unbelievable. Books on every conceivable subject. Latin. Medicine. Astronomy. Geology. Horticulture. I mean, everything. It was the most amazing library I've ever seen. He was fascinated by all of it. He had the most eclectic sense of information I've ever come across. He studied languages he had no use for just for the joy of studying them, you know.
