Where Passion leads or prudence points the way.
Forever seeking, never found, In this wide varied scene; Sole object of unceasing search, While in this low terrene. Yet vain the search, if in the heart Some lurking Passion dwell; For this will hang with cypress wreath Retirement's secret cell.

But in a dozen various ways I came to recognize myself in the past, which is at least an important piece of self-knowledge.richard weaver

I believe that curiosity, wonder and Passion are defining qualities of imaginative minds and great teachers ; that restlessness and discontent are vital things; and that intense experience and suffering instruct us in ways that less intense emotions can never do.
And O when the whirlwind of Passion is raging, When sin in our hearts its wild warfare is waging, Then send down Thy grace, Thy redeemed to cherish; Rebuke the destroyer; "Save, Lord, or we perish."
