Did Tesla completely devote his life to his work? From the few photos I’ve seen, he always looks so serious. I’ve never seen photos of him with friends, a romantic interest, or doing a hobby.
I think there are some photos out there of him enjoying himself, but for the most part Tesla was completely devoted to his work. Also, he had no romantic interests. I know there are sick individuals out there who believe he had more than a platonic relationship with his pigeon, but usually I just block those disgusting minds. Anyways…Occasionally some close friends of his could break him free from work to attend small dinner parties, or holiday get-togethers, and he enjoyed those, but it was rare to get him out of his laboratory. Most of the time he was ignoring letters from friends and family begging him to take a break from work or he’ll have another breakdown. Also, in his later years he enjoyed throwing dinner parties on his birthday for the press, but it was spent sharing the new ideas he was working on.
