“Passion” is any thought that we have, usually repetitively, that conjures so much emotion we have to take physical action to represent that thought.
Comedy may be the enemy of strictness,
but it's without doubt the ally of discipline.
Just because we should always strive
to mindfully honor our feelings
does not therefore mean we should always seek
to liberally encourage them.
Mind what you say in public.
For while you're certain you deliver only treasures
all ships carry rats.
Fight, always, your own mythology of yourself.
Most of it is false.
And while some of it will be true,
you will only know those parts
by how they defeat you in battle,
and not by how they lord over you in servitude.
A loser hates most to lose.
A winner hates most to hate.
If you want better things to celebrate
don't treat every single reason to celebrate
as an urgent excuse to go celebrate.
Maturity is not measured by one's behavior.
It is measured by how much responsibility one asserts
towards the consequences of one's behavior.
Passion is not the motivator.
Those who wait for it to arrive will sit long in the dark.
Passion should be the goal.
Those who seek it out will fly far to the heavens.
