Certainly the most impetuous of Williston’s virtues, passion is, quite simply, the catalyst to our success. However devoted our purpose is, however disciplined our integrity, the application of passion is essential to make anything of our goals. Purpose keeps us strong in our endeavors, but passion brings the Promethean furor to give them life. Continue reading
