“Your passion is like a fire, a fire that must be maintained by you, and only you. It is up to you to discover what fuels your fire. Just as you protect the physically essential aspects of life, like your heart, your eyes, or the food on the table; your passion for life, your inner fire, must be looked after just as carefully. Some may be able to survive without that burning passion, but they certainly cannot live without it.”             Submitted by Jon Wos on 6/16/17
