"Having a passion is a gift. I think we all have passions, and you don't get to choose them, they pick you. But you have to be alert to them, you have to be looking for them. And, when you find your passion, it's a fantastic gift for you because it gives you direction and purpose. You can have a job, o you can have a career or you can have a calling, and the best thing is to have a calling. And if you find your passion you'll have that an all your work won't feel like work to you." - Jeff Bezos
