Quotable Sunday

Mothers Day Gift Ideas
So today is Quotable Sunday over at "A Daily Dose of Toni"
and the quest is to post quotable quotes about

This word lies close to my heart.
And not just for the most obvious reasons; but nonetheless close.
And close I shall keep it and treasure it.... cos it's all mine!

"There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."
Nelson Mandela

"My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them."
Jack Kerouac

said another way...

Keeping passion at bay or surrendering blindly to it -
which of these two attitudes is the least the destructive?

I don't know."
Paulo Coelho

Happy {passionate} Sunday y'all!!
