Happy Friday!

“Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted... unbidden... it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? 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.”

- Joss Whedon (American Screenwriter, Producer)

  2. absolutely agree! I truely feel as though if you don't HAVE to do something, the only reason you should do something is if you are passionate about it! Don't take on a task or be with someone you aren't passionate about! Passion is a beautiful thing!

  18. Ok, so I'm a bit behind again (Google Reader is an evil crazy place) but I saw JOSS so I had to comment! Is this from the Buffy episode "Passions"? (which you'd think I'd remember since it's such an awesome episode!). This is me too lazy to go find out...
