Monday's Thought
Anita Sharpe on Passionate Work

'I tell young people who may ask about a career: Look around and think of what you've done and decide what you like best. Then see if you can't make a living doing it.

'Curiosity has been the driving force in my life. It just gives me a lot of pleasure to make discoveries.

'I got the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1954 for my work on the nature of the chemical bond. I'd just been enjoying myself doing X-ray crystallography and applying quantum mechanics to chemical problems. Basically, I was just having a good time and I get the Nobel Prize for it!'
-- Linus Pauling (from The Way of Adventure by Jeff Salz)

Making a living at what you love can be a great way to smother that love, too.

I tell anyone who will listen. do what you love!

And...

If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with!
