Quotable Sunday: Passion

Quotable Sunday

Hey Hey Quoters.  It’s time for quotable Sunday (feel free to grab the button in my sidebar).  If this is your first time here for Quotable Sunday and you want to join in, here’s how you do it:
~ Post a new post on your blog with one or more of your favorite quotes in it.
~ Grab the post link and add it to Mr. Linky (below)
~ Check back through the day and visit the other participants.

Today my quotes are about Passion. Passion is something we should all have, it’s what helps us to go after something we want or to support a cause we believe it. Just don’t let your passion take over your reason, remember what good is it to get what you want if you hurt someone trying to get there or what good is it if you have that cause if you aren’t going to be respectful of those whose opinion differs from you. So here are my quotes for this week:

If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins. ~Benjamin Franklin

Passion, though a bad regulator, is a powerful spring. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Chase down your passion like it’s the last bus of the night. ~Glade Byron Addams

Follow your passion, and success will follow you. ~Arthur Buddhold

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. ~Attributed to Howard Thurman

Renew your passions daily. ~Abbe Yeux-verdi

Passion is universal humanity. Without it religion, history, romance and art would be useless. ~Honoré de Balzac

So be passionate about anything you want but remember not to let that passion rule you or you could end up doing more harm and not getting to where you were headed than if you use reason and passion together.
