Leave the world better than you found it.
I’ve probably pulled this image up a dozen times a year since I found it. Anthony Bourdain came up from the bottom, shined his little light on what was wrong in his world, worked hard to make things better, and used his celebrity to show the world how much we all have in common.
I haven’t ready any of his books.
I’ve barely seen half his shows.
But everything I ever saw from this guy was fucking solid.
I’ve always had a lot of respect for Anthony Bourdain. And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to one day be like the Anthony Bourdain of gearheads somehow.
He had a good run. He did good work.
I’m sad he’s no longer with us—but I’m gutted to learn he felt he had no other options.
Avoid and outwit anyone standing between you and making the world a better place.
No reservations needed, Chef. We’ll save you a seat at the table.
