Quotes About How Passion Can Improve Your Life

“Passion” is a word that often comes up when discussing our life’s meaning. It’s the driving force that fuels much of our creativity, determination, and fulfillment.

Whether it pertains to love, our hobbies, or our careers, finding our passion — that intangible thing that lights us up — can truly make all the difference. It can transform ordinary moments of romance into breathless memories, or it can motivate us to hone our skills and unlock our full potential.

The relentless drive required to overcome challenges and transform dreams into reality is often powered by passion — it’s the antidote to a mundane life, a path to purpose.

In short, passion is many things, but ultimately, it’s the secret ingredient that elevates the human experience. This selection of quotes about passion serves as a reminder to stop and consider what it is that stokes our internal fire — and how we can include more of that in our lives.

Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Steve Jobs

Share Quote

Passion is the source of our finest moments: the joy of love, the clarity of hatred, and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we’d know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow: empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we’d be truly dead.
Angelus (David Boreanaz) in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”
