Meet Noah Charney
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Ars Ardor Forma Amor
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. Efficiency, confidence, and relentless optimism
Q. What do you regret most?
A. I always wanted to accomplish things at a younger age, and a first novel at 27 seems a bit late, although I know that, for non-abnormal people, that's plenty early
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. I have no patience for details--I want to grab the big ideas by the throat, and then I'll rush passed the "I' dotting and "T" crossing
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. I'd like to go out for beers with Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Titian, and watch them argue. I'd go out with Bernini and Caravaggio, but I think they'd wind up punching me.
