A man in passion rides a horse that runs away with him.
A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them.
All passions exaggerate; and they are passions only because they do exaggerate.
Anyone who seeks to destroy the passions instead of controlling them is trying to play the angel.
As a bathtub lined with white porcelain, when the hot water gives out or goes tepid, so is the slow cooling of our chivalrous passion, o my much praised but-not-altogether-satisfactory lady.
Chase your passion, not your pension.
Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music — the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.
Do what you love. Know you own bone; gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw it still.
Every man without passion has within him no principle of action, nor motive of act.
Few people have ever seriously wished to be exclusively rational. The good life which most desire is a life warmed by passions and touched with that ceremonial grace which is impossible without some affectionate loyalty to traditional form and ceremonies.
Get into a line that you will find to be a deep personal interest, something you really enjoy spending twelve to fifteen hours a day working at, and the rest of the time thinking about.
He only employs his passion who can make no use of his reason.
He submits to be seen through a microscope, who suffers himself to be caught in a fit of passion.
He who has no passion has no principal or motive to act.
I always tried to make clear that basketball is not the ultimate. It is of small importance in comparison to the total life we live. There is only one kind of life that truly wins, and that is the one that places faith in the hands of the Savior. Until that is done, we are on an aimless course that runs in circles and goes nowhere.
I don't think I can play any other way but all out. I enjoy the game so much because I'm putting so much into it.
I have no respect for the passion of equality, which seems to me merely idealizing envy.
I was born to be a runner. I simply love to run. It's almost like the faster I go, the easier it becomes.
I'd rather be a failure at something I love than a success at something I hate.
I'm very determined and stubborn. There's a desire in me that makes me want to do more and more, and to do it right. Each one of us has a fire in our heart for something. It's our goal in life to find it and to keep it lit.
