Imagine that you can talk for one hour with any person who has lived at any time in history. Wich person would you choose to meet? Use specific details and examples to explain your choice.

In fact, there are several persons in history I hope to meet them, and discuss with them, how they became ideal persons from simple persons, how they developed their knowledge and skills to acheive their dreams, and they became a phenomenon in their time.

For me, I will select the inventor Edison for several reasons, the major reason is I love this man and his important invention flashlight and his potential. I have several questions for his function and privat life especialy how he passed the difficulities and acheive what he has acheived.

I remember that when we studied about him in secondry school, and how he invented the flahlight. It was distinct lesson and we all enjoyed about it.
After that we studied about his private life when he was child he did not study in goverment school only 3 months then he left school and took care the inventions and his mother because these two things are the most significant in his individual life.

If I meet him I will ask him some principal questions because one hour is too short. First question is, how was your childhood? Second, who is your ideal person when you was young? Third, what you mean when you said that my mother made me?.
After he answers all of these questions we will go to his laboratory and show me his business and inventions and I will enjoy about his work, I will take one of his work to keep it in my room.
