Passion is imperative like love. That's why, it influences a lot of things. As a matter of fact, it takes passion to go for a career, job, profession, business or stuffs like that. Moreover, it takes passion to work under pressure in an organisation or a company. Undoubtedly, it's passion that makes anyone unyielding to difficulties or challenges. Or rather, passion is the force that drives someone all through adversities or challenges. Obviously, that indicates that the positive effects of passion in humans cannot be overemphasized. I mean, there is more to passion than you can think or imagine. Anyway, be and remain passionate in all you do.
Patriotism having become one of our topicks, Johnson suddenly uttered, in a strong determined tone, an apophthegm, at which many will start Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. But let it be considered that he did not mean a real and generous love of our country, but that pretended patriotism which so many, in all ages and countries, have made a cloak of self- interest.
People love to admit they have bad handwriting or that they can't do math. And they will readily admit to being awkward 'I'm such a klutz' But they will never admit to having a poor sense of humor or being a bad driver.
People who are not in love fail to understand how an intelligent man can suffer because of a very ordinary woman. This is like being surprised that anyone should be stricken with cholera because of a creature so insignificant as the comma bacillus.
People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth.
Perhaps extreme danger strips us of all pretenses, all ambitions, all confusions, focusing us more intensely than we are otherwise ever focused, so that we remember what we otherwise spend most of our lives forgetting that our nature and purpose is, more than anything else, to love and to make love, to take joy from the beauty of the world, to live with an awareness that the future is not as real a place for any of us as are the present and the past.
