Whatever you decide to create or make or do, let yourself focus fully with all your ability because there is none of that, not even knowledge or wisdom in the grave where we all will go. (Sandy’s understanding and wording)
Ecclesiastical 9: 10
I will use Enzo’s words for this post. First what he said in general about himself and his life then about his work as an engineer. The photographs were all taken by me in the museum built to celebrate Ferrari.
Cars are not my passion but how people reach such heights of perfection in what they do and remain focused is of interest to me. Hence what they say is relevant in helping me understand a little of how they think.
Here are some personal things he said:
” I consider myself weak and so I put on a kind of mask. I put it on to hide myself.”
“There is no triumph or glory in the world that is worth an inch of human skin.”
“I am convinced that when a man tells a woman that he loves her, he only means that he desires her ; and that the only total love in this world is that of a father for his son.”
Here are some sayings about his work I have alternated them with some of his and his colleagues workmanship.
” I should like to put something new into my cars every morning- an inclination that terrifies my staff.”
“Racing cars are neither beautiful nor ugly. They become beautiful when they win.” Enzo
