Oprah Winfrey once said, “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” Michael Zomber is a man who executes the meaning behind this quote as he regularly expresses his passion for the preservation of history. His overall theory on how to ensure the retention of knowledge of historical events focuses on the collection, care, and sale of antique arms.
With a heavy focus on Japanese samurai swords, the man has shared his knowledge with the public by appearing on the History channel’s show, Tales of the Gun. His segments can be seen on YouTube. Combining his two passions of antique arms and storytelling, he finally got his moment in the spotlight to emphasize the importance of preserving history.
Born in Washington DC, his passionate soul was noticeable early in life. Upon completion of college, the enthusiast received his bachelor’s degree in English literature and psychology. He progressed and ultimately obtained his master’s degree in English literature. Putting his degrees to good use, the storyteller had written dozens of screenplays and historical novels available through Amazon. Of course, each of his works emphasized his passion for the history of arms and samurai swords.
Of course, the historian did not spend his entire life working and was actually a family man. Married with two children, Zomber certainly revels in all of life’s offerings. Conclusively, however, if one can take any lesson away from this man, it is that every aspect of your life must be the direct result of passion in your heart.
