The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.
Your passion is waiting for your courage to catch up.
Never put passion before principle. Even if win, you lose.
Mr. Miyagi, The Karate Kid
Do it with passion, or not at all.
Rosa Nouchette Carey
Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.
If I were to wish for anything, I should not with for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never.
My dear, find what you love and let it kill you. Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness. Let it kill you and let it devour your remains. For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.
Knowing what you want and going after it every day is one of the most beautiful things anyone can have in life.
Skills are cheap. Passion is priceless.
