Question: What are some of your favorite passion quotes?

Please note: I reserve the right to delete comments that are offensive or off-topic.

  • Great selection, Dan. Out of all these, I like John Wesley’s the most. It is true that people love to follow a leader full of passion.

    • It’s a great one Joe. Leadership and passion go hand in hand. Thank you for sharing.

  • It’s not necessarily a passion quote, but one that reminds me of my passion:

    “Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

    • I really like that one. Thank you for sharing it.

  • “When you set yourself on fire, people love to come and see you burn.” ~John Wesley – I’ve never heard this one before, but I love it! Good one, Dan.

    • I recently found it and have really enjoyed it.

  • Dan great quotes, my favorite is:

    I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious. – Albert Einstein

    • That’s a great one Lincoln Park.

  • Floyd Samons

    While I can’t think of an exact quote the one that exemplifies passion that popped into my mind, in part. “I know not what course of may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.” That’s the kind of passion that changed and still changes the world.

    • Amen, such a good thought. Thank you for sharing it.

  • I like the Sartre quote the best. Sometimes, you just gotta fake it and act it out, and your emotions will follow.

  • I have always loved that quote by John Wesley. It communicates the power of authenticity and passion.

    Thanks for sharing these. Clipped to evernote!

    • I found that one about a month ago and have really enjoyed it. Thank you for reading.

  • You know I’m a fan of when you do these quotes, I’ll be using them throughout the week :)

    • Glad you enjoy them and are using them.

  • Great quotes on passion. It’s important to have passion in whatever we choose to focus on in life: for me that’s teaching, writing, music, and sharing the message of forgiveness. I’ll hold these quotes near me. However, we can’t run on passion alone. What do you do on days when passion won’t keep pulling the train? Maybe that’s where discipline enters the equation. Might make another good post.

    • Passion is so essential. I think good habits and “discipline” are needed when passion is lacking. Having good habits and routines in place can cause us to “do” and move forward even when we don’t feel like it.

      I have written about what we can do when we don’t feel motivated here, http://wp.me/p1waA2-ow I’ll have to think about how I can elaborate on the topic even more.

      Thank you for adding to the discussion.
