A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on passion, growth, wisdom, transformation, enlightenment, and bly

Tell a wise person, or else keep silent, / because the mass man will mock it right away. / I praise what is truly alive, / what longs to be burned to death. / [] In the calm water of the love-nights, / where you were begotten, where you have begotten, / a strange feeling comes over you, / when you see the silent candle burning. / [] Now you are no longer caught in the obsession with darkness, / and a desire for higher love-making sweeps you upward. / [] Distance does not make you falter. / Now, arriving in magic, flying, / and finally, insane for the light, / you are the butterfly and you are gone. / And so long as you haven't experienced this: to die and so to grow, / you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on dream, passion, life, night, and solitude

The dream remains overloaded with the badly lived passions of daytime life. Solitude in the nocturnal dream is always a hostility. It is strange. It isn't really our solitude.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on passion, profit, and conscious capitalism

Do what you love, but be damned sure it's profitable. If you do work you love, but it doesn't generate income, your business will fail.  If you do work you hate, but it generates income, your health will fail… and your business along with it.  If you can't do what you love and make it profitable, you've either got a hobby or a headache, not a sustainable business.  Don't settle for anything less than passion and profit.
