A-Z - passion

for my friends who know i write romance, you probably thought that was the kind of passion i was going to talk about. wrong!

if you want *that* kind of passion, you can read these posts - "Proposal from Eldala," "Sharing my Darling" (the scene is halfway through the post, after the yummy picture of Adrian Paul Arathor), and "My Darling's Fraternal Twin."

Chase down your passion like it's the last bus of the night. ~Terri Guillemets

Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. ~Howard Thurman (yes, i know i posted this before, but it's one of my favorite quotes and it bears repeating.)

Follow your heart, but be quiet for a while first. Ask questions, then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart. ~Unknown

Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion. ~Hebbel

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music. ~Angela Monet

The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment. ~Earl Nightingale

Our passions are the winds that propel our vessel. Our reason is the pilot that steers her. Without winds the vessel would not move and without a pilot she would be lost. ~Unknown

Nice quotes. I need a pick-me-up today. You know how some days you feel sorta blah, like you chased down your passion-bus, but it ran over your foot and you realized when you got on-board it was the wrong dang bus?

That's how I'm feeling today. Tuesdays. I guess it's just Tuesdays.

Passion! I have it - it fuels me and without it I'd be...?

Those are beautiful quotes, Michelle! I'm a very passionate person and sometimes that works to my advantage and sometimes not. :o)

Thanks for sharing! Have a great day!

Great post! And excellent "turn" on the standard emotion that one associates with "passion." I completely agree with you!

And nice blog!
