passion and purpose

"Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like the flint which awaits the shock of the iron before it can give forth its spark." -Henri Frederic Amiel

"Passion surprises. One doesn't search it. It can happen to you tomorrow." -Isabelle Adjani

"Temperance is simply a disposition of the mind which binds the passion." -Saint Thomas Aquinas
