doesn't come from business or books or even a connection with
another person. It is a connection to your own life force, the
world around you and the spirit that connects us all. You are
the source. Books, work, music, people, sunsets all provide
sparks, but only you can light the fire.

though unwanted, unbidden. It will stir, open its
jaws and howl. It speaks to us, guides us; passion
rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we
have? Passion is the source of our finest
moments. The joy of love, the clarity of hatred, and
the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than
we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe
we’d know some kind of peace, but we would be hollow. .

saddest people I've ever met in life are the ones who don't care
deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in
hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary,
because there's nothing to make it last.
|Passion has overthrown tyrants
and freed prisoners and slaves.
Passion has brought justice where there was savagery. Passion
has created freedom where there was nothing but fear. Passion
has helped souls rise from the ashes of their horrible lives
and build something better, stronger, more beautiful.

passion I don't mean sex or desire. I don't mean what happens
to you when you wear Obsession, drive a Porsche Carrera, weigh
ninety-six pounds, and are lusted after by someone with a deep
