Passion’s Pursuit


“That we pursue something passionately does not always mean that we really want it or have a special aptitude for it.  Often, the thing we pursue most passionately is but a substitute for the one thing we really want and cannot have.  It is usually safe to predict that the fulfilment of an aggressively cherished desire is not likely to still our nagging anxiety.

“In every passionate pursuit, the pursuit counts more than the object pursued.”

-Eric Hoffer
