I’ve always been passionate about the concept of helping the underdog. It just doesn’t make sense to me as to what kind of person would take a huge platform and not use it to do something, to change something, to help people.

Jameela Jamil
One of the topics I’m most passionate about is servant leadership – the greatest leaders recognize that they’re here to serve, not to be served.

Ken Blanchard
With Ronaldo in the league, people will be passionate again about Serie A.

Kylian Mbappe
People are so passionate about their favourite artists making it to number 1, it almost reminds me of football fanaticism. Nowadays, it’s ‘One Direction’ vs ‘The Wanted.’ Back in my day, it was ‘Oasis’ vs ‘Blur’.

Jameela Jamil
When you think of technology that gets people excited – long lines at stores, enthusiastic reviews in the blogosphere, passionate evangelists – the first thing to come to mind probably isn’t thermostats. Then, along came Nest.

Ryan Holmes
I’ve long wanted to find a charitable cause to really get involved with and be passionate about. I get invited to a lot of charity events to sing, and I am happy to help and bring a source of entertainment, but I’m sort of disconnected from them.

Katharine McPhee
It’s very hard to come across as a passionate human being in print. People can’t hear the inflections in your voice.

Steve Vai
We’re also passionate about music and very critical about the music that we listen to.

Will Champion
Well, I don’t think I’ve necessarily ever been a passionate football player or a passionate person.

When you’re so passionate about cinema, the idea to direct your own film is really appealing.

Ted Allen
I’m interested in everthing but passionate about nothing.

Jeanne Calment
Favored Nations is a long-term commitment. Our hope is that those who are passionate about real musicianship will want to hear and own most of our albums. We will set out to attain the same direct relationship with our customers that we have with our artists.

Steve Vai
Having competed themselves, my father and my uncle are very passionate about motorsport, so I inherited it from them.

Pastor Maldonado
I studied communications, only because I could get my own show on the campus radio station. I never thought of it as a career. Music was always a really passionate hobby – it was like collecting DVDs or stamps.

I feel like my convictions and my passions come from my very personal experience and the life that I’ve led. I feel the very naturally tendency to stand up for and use my voice for the things that I know about and the things that I feel passionate about.

America Ferrera
My father was very intense, passionate and over-the-top. He was my hero and my tyrant.

June Jordan

David Shields
I’m happy to be helping people that are passionate about empowering parents for student learning.

Jeb Bush
It’s easy to have strong, visceral feelings about disrespecting America. It’s harder to get passionate about tax law.

Matt Gaetz
One of the reasons I’m so passionate about science is that it wasn’t correctly taught to me. I got excited at university.

Elise Andrew
Faith is a passionate intuition.

William Wordsworth
I am passionate about football. My support for Celtic FC has got me through some hard times in my life. I still play regularly, too.

Rod Stewart
My impression of Abramovich is that he loves football, his club, and his players. He wants to know everything that is going on and is very passionate. Berlusconi, too, loves his club, but he was a man of the people and conducted his life in public.

Carlo Ancelotti
I think women love a passionate love story.

E. L. James
People get jaded in every profession, but for some reason, I feel as passionate as when I was 13 years old and just released my first album. I feel the same amount of adrenaline in my blood, and the same amount of curiosity as well. Curiosity about why I’m different.

We’re passionate musicians, but we felt classical concerts were more like a funeral because nobody talked and everybody was dressed so conservatively. We thought that’s kind of strange, because music is full of life! We thought we could break through that barrier with theater and comedy elements.

Aleksey Igudesman
In every man there is an instinctive and passionate reaction if his person or liberty is attacked.

Arthur Keith
I’m passionate about being true to myself, sending good energy to the people around me, traveling, staying inspired, being a good friend, being a good daughter, being a good sister.

Erin Wasson
I don’t want to express alienation. It isn’t what I feel. I’m interested in various kinds of passionate engagement. All my work says be serious, be passionate, wake up.

Susan Sontag
Estee Lauder was my grandmother. She was an iconic and powerful woman, but to us, she was just Estee. She was the first person to teach me how important it is to be passionate and proud of what you do, and always talked about ‘balance.’

Aerin Lauder
If the Italian is the most passionate lover in the world, it may be because he is the most restrained. Rigid convention denies him all contact with the lovelier girls, who never are free from chaperons.

Rudolph Valentino
Out-working your competition is a lot easier to achieve if you’re passionate about what you are doing.

Robert Kraft
The most important thing is to be passionate and ready to accept the pains that sometimes go along with the business.

I am very passionate about this business, and I always have been.

Drew McIntyre
We are playing at home, with full stadiums and passionate fans. It will be very special moment for me.

Andriy Shevchenko
In school, you get a limited view of the world. Start working. Find your passion. Take your time doing that. Once you’ve found what you’re passionate about, then lock down. Even if you want to start a business, it’s helpful to work, see how other businesses are run.

Joe Mansueto
You don’t leave Australia unless you are passionate. Any Australian actor who comes to America is really committed. There are no dabblers – it’s all or nothing.

Margot Robbie
What we showed you was you can have analytic reasoning that can be passionate.

John J. McLaughlin
I have to say that I’m a very passionate person.

Demetrius Shipp, Jr.
When I believe in something, I’m very passionate. I don’t take ‘no’ for an answer.

Jada Pinkett Smith
I’m very much into the Gypsy Kings. It’s rumba and very festive, very passionate music, rhythmic guitar, passionate singing about love from happy people.

Sofia Milos
Our D.V.R.s make up the schedule of the shows that we’re passionate about. You want Jon Stewart? You’ve got it. Your D.V.R. will give that to you, as opposed to making the destination and the choice to spend that evening with a network.

Warren Littlefield
This is the very worst wickedness, that we refuse to acknowledge the passionate evil that is in us. This makes us secret and rotten.

D. H. Lawrence
Having children is one of the most passionate and involving bits of business in human life.

Siri Hustvedt
My wife and I have been passionate about education being a gateway for upward mobility and equality.

Chris Long
I’m truly passionate about basketball. I’m not as passionate about baseball as I am about basketball, but I watch baseball and I watch football. I love sports in general.

Patrick Soon-Shiong
I’d love to do films, but I’d feel bad in my gut if I did anything just for the money. I want to wait for something I’m really passionate about, even if I don’t work for a year.

Jessica Raine
Besides my love for horses and cars, I am passionate about making the cheapest vaccines in the world. I started making life-saving drugs when I was 22.

Cyrus S. Poonawalla
What is enthusiasm but a passionate belief in what seems to be a high and holy aim – an unselfish devotion to some noble cause – a consecration of heart and mind and soul to the attainment of a great object?

Orison Swett Marden
I’m passionate about old people because I am one myself.

Len Goodman
I attribute the black tones in my films to Stephen King, Tim Burton, Joe Hill and Richard Matheson. However, most of my writing is influenced by mental health. I’m incredibly passionate about shedding light on the stigmas associated with mental illnesses.

Anna Akana
I love what I do. I’m passionate about what I do. I live for what I do. And every morning, I can’t wait to stop sleeping and to jump up and get out of bed and start doing what I do.

Paul Heyman
If I had a comfort blanket, I wouldn’t have been as passionate and driven.

Rob James-Collier
Go for the girl who can eat a proper meal. If she’s passionate about food, you’ll most likely be fortunate in other venues.

Liz Vassey
If you love something, if you’re passionate about it, that’s where you’re going to have the greatest impact on the people around you: by living in those passions and sharing that passion with other people and sharing your gifts and what God created you to be.

Kurt Warner
I love to sing. I also had a band during my college days in Saudi Arabia called Thousand Decibels. If not an actor, I would have become a singer. I am very passionate about work. I am a fitness freak: I go to gym before doing my shoot. I also do yoga.

Karan Singh Grover
Communicating a passionate response to world events is no longer limited to protests and rallies.

Rosalind Wiseman
To be the best CEO you can be, you have to be passionate about the business you’re running. And I have true passion for the financial markets and the financial industry.

Adena Friedman
I’m just happy to do projects I’m passionate about.

Selena Gomez
Even before Watergate and his resignation, Nixon had inspired conflicting and passionate emotions.

Stephen Ambrose
This is the point being missed by readers who lament Liquor’s lack of hot sex scenes, probably because they aren’t old enough to understand that a passionate relationship could be about anything other than sex.

Poppy Z. Brite
I’m definitely picky about what projects I take on. They have to be things I’m passionate about. I actually get to be creative when it comes to my mobile game. It’s really cool.

Britney Spears
I love being a mommy, and I love being an artist, and I love being a singer and an actress and making a movie – all that stuff I feel very passionate about, so I have a lot of energy for it.

Melora Hardin
I need to let people know who I am and instead of just trying to make great records, just be honest and make it more personal and make it more passionate, to make records with emotion and not be afraid to express that.

You get around people who see us away from the track, and it’s a pretty big contrast. You’re still competitive, and you still want to win everything, but I think in the car, we’re focused and passionate all the time. We get outside the car, and we’re a lot more relaxed and easygoing, enjoying things away from racing.

Tony Stewart
When it comes down to my brand, We the Best, we’re about the people and whoever is passionate and in love the way I’m in love when it comes down to the headphones I’m promoting.

DJ Khaled
I’m passionate about learning. I’m passionate about life.

Tom Cruise

Tom Rath
If you’re passionate about your work, it makes the people around you want to be involved too.

Wanda Sykes
I think he had a strange, passionate devotion to the truth and a horror at what he saw going on.

Ben Bradlee
One of the reasons I’m proud of the show and think it works is that as much as Ted is nice and he’s kind and he’s passionate, his troubles are real. He doesn’t exist in a vacuum. The world of ‘Ted Lasso’ isn’t a fairy tale.

Brett Goldstein
Maybe if I found something I was really passionate about, which is entirely possible, I would make another documentary, but it’s not a good career choice for anybody. I don’t recommend it.

Terry Zwigoff
At this point, I’m happy to be part of something special. As an actor I liked to choose scripts that I’m passionate about.

Liam Hemsworth
I’m honored. Really honored that the Red Sox have asked me to possible be on the board of the Red Sox Foundation and do some stuff on their charitable works that they are so passionate about.

Tim Wakefield
I don’t see myself as angry, although other people see that. I just see myself as a short, dumpy guy with bad feet, and I’m passionate.

Tracy Morgan
I was passionate about soccer. I still am. Odd, though – playing soccer always made me much more anxious than playing tennis. On soccer days, I’d be out of bed by 6 in the morning, all nervous. But I was always calm when it was time for a tennis match. I still don’t know why.

Rafael Nadal
I encourage others to choose a career they are passionate about and can do for the rest of their lives.

William Baldwin
You have to lead people to get excited and be passionate and be activated by what you do.

Helping people understand the impact of key environmental and human issues worldwide is something that I’m passionate about. CNN’s ‘Going Green’ series of specials are engaging viewers around the world through important messages of conservation and hope.

Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
I look for roles that are a good story for me as an actress and what I think will grow me as an actress and person. I also just really enjoy working with people who are passionate about what they do.

Madeline Brewer
I did not become an actor to earn money – that I could have done it in my village by becoming a farmer. I wanted to show my craft, which I am so passionate about.

Pankaj Tripathi
Ben and I have absolutely nothing to do with the Hollywood that’s all actors and the Sunset Strip. We crave talking to people who do different things and are passionate about it.

Melissa McCarthy
One consistent thing in an otherwise inconsistent career is that I’ve always been passionate about parliament.

John Bercow
If you do something that you’re not genuinely passionate about, it is a little soul-crushing. Just not worth it.

Claire Danes
I am passionate. I am political about my country, about what it is, how strong it is, how strong it remains.

Robert Redford
I really struggled, growing up, with reading and writing. I had a hard time to do that, but I was really passionate about storytelling and about books.

Maya Hawke
I was at the University of Miami, and I still had, like, a semester or so left. And through the film school, I found out that Al Gore was launching a new TV network; they were looking for passionate young storytellers to transform television, which was, like, ambiguous but magnificent-sounding.

Jason Silva
I like being… in Kansas City. People are extremely nice, extremely passionate about the Chiefs.

Patrick Mahomes
I’m a passionate believer in revision, and a lot of my writing gets done during revision process. It isn’t just tweaking: I tend to break it apart and remake it every time I do a new draft.

John Jeremiah Sullivan
For most people, it’s easy to be passionate about things that are working out, and that distorts our impression of the importance of passion. I’ve been involved in several dozen business ventures over the course of my life, and each one made me excited at the start. You might even call it passion.

Scott Adams
For myself, personally, I am never really aware of timing or anything because I am passionate about what I do, so I have found that if you really love what you do, then time flies.

Colm Wilkinson
I never get obsessed with ratings, partly because the Channel series ‘Utopia,’ which I did, had small ratings but a passionate following, which allowed a second series.

Alistair Petrie
Acting is such a bizarre way of life. Unless you’re really passionate about it, you should give it up. Don’t beat yourself up.

Stockard Channing
I am very proud of what we have built in Spain, because it is not a traditional Formula 1 country. I think we have found passionate fans, and built up a strong culture for the sport – and things are improving every day, with more and more people getting interested.

Fernando Alonso
Choose something you are passionate about – or a pain point that has affected you and that you feel really needs to be changed.

Jeremy Stoppelman
Zombies are so popular. There’s a lot of chaff out there. For every one person who is legitimately passionate about zombies, there are a hundred people who are thinking, ‘Hey, I can make a buck off of this.’ The problem is that some of their stuff is so lame.

Max Brooks
NASCAR fans are very knowledgeable and very passionate.

Jimmie Johnson
‘Dependent web’ platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google and Yahoo are where people go to discover and share new content. Independent sites are the millions of blogs, community and service sites where passionate individuals ‘hang out’ with like-minded folks. This is where shared content is often created.

John Battelle
It’s about passion, and if somebody is passionate about a development deal, they’re going to get it made.

Dawn Steel
I find mediocrity hard. I find that whole area difficult. I’m a very passionate person; I care very much about what I do. I believe I give it a lot, so it’s gotta be good; otherwise, what’s the point?

Phoebe Philo
I’m a big baseball fan, and I feel proprietary about the Dodgers. I’m not the owner. I’m not the manager. But I feel passionate about the decisions that they make, and I take it personally when they make decisions I don’t like.

Carlton Cuse
Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you’re passionate about something, then you’re more willing to take risks.

Yo-Yo Ma
The most passionate fans are from India, and I hope that I can motivate more Indians to pursue wrestling – or any athletics, for that matter – and become champions.

Jinder Mahal
Latin men are the most passionate men in the world – they may not be the most aggressive, but they are very passionate, very romantic.

Brooke Burke
If you really are passionate about it, you’re just going to find a way to make it happen.

Keiynan Lonsdale
When it comes to music, something I’m passionate about, and knowing the reach and the power and how it transforms, it saves lives. Music does.

Ali Shaheed Muhammad
Fantasy fans are incredibly loyal and passionate. Other people don’t want to be seen as passionate about things, they want to be cool and laconic. The great thing about fantasy fans is they’ll really get behind a show.

John Bradley-West
To be honest, I’ve been a passionate advocate for the value of tech to help us connect to people in real and emotional ways – and stick up for myself when people say, ‘Sklar! Stop tweeting!’

Rachel Sklar
Do what you’re passionate about.

Lacey Chabert
I’m a passionate trade unionist.

Richard Attenborough
I’ve always loved dancing. As soon as there is good music, I’ve got to get up and dance. I was passionate about ballet as a little girl.

Cherie Lunghi
I have declared that I will work free of cost with those composers who are passionate about their work. Sohail Sen is one such lad, whose music in Banjaara has been liked a lot.

Sukhwinder Singh
In the car and in front of the camera I tend to be very calm but behind the scenes I can get fired up and passionate, I just don’t see the need to shout my mouth off in public.

Jenson Button
I got so passionate about technology. Hacking to me was like a video game. It was about getting trophies. I just kept going on and on, despite all the trouble I was getting into, because I was hooked.

Kevin Mitnick
Certainly I’m passionate and driven and quite relentless when I want something.

Demi Moore

Alice Braga
If you find something that you’re passionate about, your world can change.

Charlotte Flair
I am passionate about human rights.

Hannah Simone
I have a little tiny Emily Dickinson so big that I carry in my pocket everywhere. And you just read three poems of Emily. She is so brave. She is so strong. She is such a sexy, passionate, little woman. I feel better.

Maurice Sendak
I do my own stunts; that’s something I’m very passionate about. I spent a lot of time on boats as a kid, so it’s just nice to be able to put that into use in the job that I do.

Aneurin Barnard
I’ve discovered that Motown and Broadway have a lot in common – a family of wonderfully talented, passionate, hardworking young people, fiercely competitive but also full of love and appreciation for the work, for each other and for the people in the audience.

Berry Gordy
I’m passionate about cooking. I’m passionate about healthy eating. I’m passionate about inspiring other women.

Tia Mowry
My parents separated when I was four. It wasn’t the smoothest of divorces, but then as my mother always says, you can’t have a passionate marriage without a passionate divorce.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor
I will end up with someone in the arts. I am positive. I eat, breathe and sleep acting. And I’ll end up with someone who is happy staying at home and having me cook supper. But I also really need to be intellectually challenged and stimulated. I want someone bookish, and someone who is passionate.

Ginnifer Goodwin
Be passionate and move forward with gusto every single hour of every single day until you reach your goal.

Ava DuVernay
As long as you know yourself and you got good people around you and you passionate about what you do, that’s all that matters because at the end of the day, you go to sleep with the people you love, you wake up with the people you love, and you spend your time with the people you love.

I have been passionate about cinema from my childhood.

Obviously my career’s important to me and I’m really, really passionate about trying to keep it.

Katherine Heigl
I really hope that I can continue to do classical theatre – it’s something I am really passionate about and I’d love to explore.

Seth Numrich
‘American Music’ is an inventive, passionate, pithy novel whose major theme is love itself and whose minor theme, music, is an emotional, meaningful counterpoint. Like Count Basie and His Orchestra, this book swings.

Kate Christensen
But quite honestly I can’t help being a passionate football supporter. If that’s my sin, I’m guilty.

Delia Smith
I have a deep and passionate love of America. It is where I have always thought I would be happiest, and although I miss England desperately, I find that my heart definitely has its home over here.

Jane Green
I’m very passionate about my two Dobermans, Stella and Mr Jonty. I go on and on and on about them, and people have to tell me to shut up before I get out pictures of them.

Victoria Pendleton
I like the idea of being so passionate about everything I do and the fact that I might wake up tomorrow and say ‘I want to be a chef,’ and just pour myself into that.

Kat Graham
If there is a job that you feel passionate about, do what you can to pursue that job; if there is a purpose about which you are passionate, dedicate yourself to that purpose.

Janet Yellen
You have to rely on your preparation. You got to really be passionate and try to prepare more than anyone else, and put yourself in a position to succeed, and when the moment comes you got to enjoy, relax, breathe and rely on your preparation so that you can perform and not be anxious or filled with doubt.

Steve Nash
You know, being an entrepreneur is super hard work, and if you’re not passionate about what you’re doing, you’re probably not going to succeed.

Jeff Raikes
Gavin O’Connor, I’d walk into a fire for that guy. He’s a brilliant filmmaker and a passionate man.

Joel Edgerton
The plight of the terrified Central American children who have flooded across the U.S. border to escape violence and poverty in their homelands has launched a passionate and often bitter debate in Washington.

Óscar Arias
I’m passionate about fantasy movies. I’m passionate about comic book movies. I’m passionate about superheroes. And movies about vengeance. And all of that – the stuff that I grew up reading.

Josh Keaton
I’m passionate about making a difference in increasing the quality of life and survivorship for all affected by lung cancer, having lost my mother and grandmother to this terrible disease.

Lynne Doughtie
I want to be a good role model for girls and show them they can do whatever they feel passionate about and still live a healthy life.

Miranda Kerr
A band that makes records and tours is also a business. That’s usually where a lot of disagreements come. It’s four guys who are musicians and don’t really know much about business, but are very passionate and have very specific ideas.

Chris Cornell
I respect passionate views.

Lynn Good
I’m passionate about schoolwork because I don’t like getting bad grades.

Bam Adebayo
Brooke and I share some similarities. We’re both passionate, fiercely loyal people. But she is far more outlandish than I’d ever be, particularly with her body and her sexuality. Brooke has made herself weak for men – she only gained self-confidence from their attention.

Sophia Bush
Capturing a beautiful moment in a photo is something I’m very passionate about.

Nigel Barker
I’m very passionate about animals.

Emma Caulfield
I think it’s imperative to follow your heart and choose a profession you’re passionate about, and if you haven’t found that ‘spark’ yet, if you’re not sure what you want to do with your lives – be persistent until you do.

Steve Kerr
I like a challenge. I need to feel passionate about something. If I’m not passionate about it, I can’t stand it. It has to feel real. DJ’ing, touring, charity work – anything.

I’m passionate about color. My best friend and I sit and look at Pantone books for fun.

Beth Ditto
I think that football has always had a passionate, aggressive side, with players giving their all. People have to get used to this.

Diego Costa
The Wonderful pistachios campaign is a great example – I don’t involve myself with a project I don’t feel passionate about. I could talk your ear off about internal statistics for WWE and what we have planned for the future. Why do I know that stuff? Because I like to do all that stuff.

John Cena
When it comes to anything you want to do in your life, you have to be passionate. Success may come, but in the end, the most important thing is that you are doing what you really want to do.

Chiara Ferragni
I like men who have goals, something that they are passionate about and work hard to achieve. A good sense of humor is important too. And I like tall guys!

Ana Ivanovic
I had an idea, I was passionate about it and I had to work hard to turn that into a big success and more products.

Lori Greiner
Luckily because I had a family and children, my priorities changed. I mean, I’m very passionate about my work but I have other interests and other things that balance my life.

Penelope Ann Miller
I have a great belief in not doing anything unless I’m passionate about it.

Anthony Horowitz
Nothing is quite so emotional and passionate as what goes on inside of a family. People are driven to distraction by a father or a mother or a husband. Or a child.

Helen Mirren
The fans of ‘The Hunger Games,’ of the book, are very passionate. It’s funny: Even at my concerts there are people holding up ‘Cinna’ signs.

Lenny Kravitz
I’m passionate about mobilizing young Latinos to get to the polls, so I’m involved with Voto Latino. Latinos are a vital but underrepresented force in this country.

Ana Ortiz
I loved painting and drawing for many reasons. One of them was that all it really required was me, a pencil and a pad. It was something I was passionate about, and still am.

Danny Huston
I just love bossy women. I could be around them all day. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It means somebody’s passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn’t mind leading.

Amy Poehler
I kind of have the most amazing fans ever. They are the most committed, passionate people, and I love them so much.

Laura Marano
Passionate dissent from the will of the multitude should be respected, not derided.

Howard Jacobson
I just really always try to do what’s in my heart and I’m still passionate about the music; I still love what I am doing.

Teena Marie
It’s hard to be good at anything. If you’re passionate, the chances are that you will find a job that will make you happy.

Arthur Rankin, Jr.
My mother was a stay-at-home mom until I was about 11, when she got a job – and it was like a light came on inside her. It’s not wrong to be passionate about your career. When you love what you do, you bring that stimulation back to your family.

Allison Pearson
I am passionate about what design can do – how far it can support the new ideas and the new ways of living of this 21st Century. Good design accelerates this exciting future where manufacturing is local, materials and processes are cradle to cradle, business models are both socially and financially driven.

Yves Behar
Whether you’re a programming prodigy or the office manager holding it all together, technology empowers small groups of passionate people with an astonishing degree of leverage to make the world a better place.

Justin Rosenstein
It seems that the small movies are a little more risky and cutting-edge. You’ve got your big commerce and you’ve got your small films that you’re more passionate about.

Robert Patrick
Fundly is at the dynamic intersection of high-growth technology startups, social entrepreneurship, and the exploding world of social media. Kapor Capital is proud to back this passionate team, their product, and Fundly’s impressive customer base.

Mitch Kapor
I have a reputation for being cold and aloof, but I’m so not that woman. I’m passionate. I love my girls, being with my girlfriends, getting involved with issues that affect other women and children who are suffering.

Annie Lennox
I’m never happier than when I’m not working. The strip is a job – that’s why I take money for it. It’s a job I’m passionate about, but it’s a job I totally leave in the studio when I walk out of here, unless I’m late and I have to work at home. I never think of the strip unless I’m compelled to.

Garry Trudeau
As much as I love acoustic Neil Young – and I do deeply – I may be more passionate about the electric. Luckily it’s not a contest, and we never have to make that choice. But Neil Young on an electric guitar – I feel like I’ve never seen or heard anything like it.

Jonathan Demme
I hope to focus on what I’m passionate about because I think I’d do them best job on them – education, urban education, women and children’s issues and literacy.

Jenna Bush
When I uploaded my very first video, I was just looking for something to make me happy. I was confused about what I was doing in my life and had earned a degree that I didn’t really enjoy. With that video, I was finally doing something I was passionate about. So it was my way of self-medicating.

Lilly Singh
I was always in front of the camera. My mom was really passionate about photography – I have pictures of my whole life. I’ve always just been in front of my mom’s camera, and it’s always comfortable to me.

Gigi Hadid
When I get passionate or worked up about an issue, I say things that the Conservatives and opponents and critics like to pounce on.

Justin Trudeau
As long as I live, I know I’ll have feelings. And that’s what I’m passionate about.

Mary J. Blige
I always tell people, good coaches are a dime a dozen. Good coaches that are good people, good husbands, good fathers, that love their players and are passionate about doing things in a way that I believe is important, that pool gets real small.

Dabo Swinney
What’s been largely forgotten is that Washington was highly passionate and aggressive, and it was only after losing Philadelphia to the British after a string of disastrous battlefield performances that he finally resigned himself to the more conservative approach with which he has since become associated.

Nathaniel Philbrick
You always want to be part of something you’re so passionate about.

Colin Morgan
Some of the hip-hop stuff people get into is exciting, because there’s a passion and there’s something to explain to a more mainstream audience, so you get these passionate writers who want to express their love for rap and hip-hop, which is cool.

Cameron Crowe
I have tried to look different and play different roles through my life because I am passionate about my work.

Rishi Kapoor
A geek isn’t the skinny kid with a pocket protector and acne. There can be computer geeks, video game geeks, car geeks, military geeks, and sports geeks. Being a geek just means that you’re passionate about something.

Olivia Munn
I dance because I have to, because I’m so passionate about it.

Paula Abdul
You cannot ‘rationalize’ what is not rational to begin with – as if lying were called ‘truthization.’ There is no way to obtain more truth for a proposition by bribery, flattery, or the most passionate argument – you can make more people believe the proposition, but you cannot make it more true.

Eliezer Yudkowsky
It’s not like I let people do things for me, so I guess you can call me a control freak, or you can call me passionate.

Courteney Cox
To be able to write a play a man must be sensitive, imaginative, naive, gullible, passionate; he must be something of an imbecile, something of a poet, something of a liar, something of a damn fool.

I was so passionate about being in the magazine industry, even when I first started at ‘Mirabella.’

When you know what you’re passionate about and what you want to do, just go for it and own it.

I think if people are passionate about something, it could be real estate or biochemistry, and that spark gets turned on in them, everyone’s beautiful in that zone.

Cindy Crawford
New Yorkers aren’t that friendly, but they’re still pretty friendly, and they’re hardworking, passionate people.

Kristaps Porzingis
I am passionate about ballet.

Benjamin Millepied
I don’t think you can say yes to every opportunity and work the weekends and work the overnight shift unless you’re really passionate about your job. So I encourage everyone to find their passion and go for it.

Ainsley Earhardt
I think the whole definition of a geek is somebody being passionate and focused, and being proud of saying that they’re passionate and focused, on a narrow range of subjects.

Felicia Day
Folk tales, fairy tales, religion, the occult – these are the things I’m most passionate about, even more than cinema. And I’m very passionate about cinema.

Robert Eggers
What I’m passionate about is History, and politics interest me only insofar as it is the cross-section of History in the present.

Chris Marker
You have people who are so passionate and touched by my work, which is so humbling. But other times, it’s a little overwhelming. If I’m just trying to go to the bodega and get some coconut water, I have to put on a hat and some glasses – those kind of things.

Samira Wiley
I grew up studying martial arts, playing violin, swimming competitively, so I already had athletic focus, discipline and training. When I brought that to climbing, I became passionate.

Jimmy Chin
The grief of the keen is no personal complaint for the death of one woman over eighty years, but seems to contain the whole passionate rage that lurks somewhere in every native of the island.

John Millington Synge
Don’t be afraid to speak out about what you’re passionate about because your voice matters and your voice can, at the end of the day, make a difference.

Remember, if you don’t feel passionate about the characters and subject of your story, your readers won’t either.

It’s impossible to be someone you’re not, so quit trying. I am as passionate about my hobbies as I am about my work and my family. All three are equally important to me at all times.

Gautam Singhania
We as individuals have good and bad days, but we are all passionate, career driven, and competitive. As a collective, the whole locker room has excellent heads on our shoulders, and you have to remember it is a sisterhood.

I’m not shy about heated debate or passionate discourse, but when people get crazy or rude, that’s a buzz kill. There’s got to be a better code of conduct, some basic etiquette.

Mos Def
It seems like when I was growing up there was more compromise, wanting to work with each other, and I think all of them – all of the lawmakers – have hearts to do what’s right, and they all are passionate about it.

Joel Osteen
What’s worked for me is not quitting and being passionate about what I do and not giving up – and when I don’t believe in myself, turning to others who believe in me.

Marc Jacobs
Kissing – and I mean like, yummy, smacking kissing – is the most delicious, most beautiful and passionate thing that two people can do, bar none. Better than sex, hands down.

Drew Barrymore
There’s a very passionate pro-chewing movement on the Internet called Chewdiasm. They say that we should be chewing 50 to 100 times per mouthful, which is insane. I tried that. It takes like a day and a half to eat a sandwich. But their basic idea is right. If you chew, you’ll eat slower and you will get more nutrients.

A. J. Jacobs
I was good at football and cricket at school. My dad said, ‘Son, be an architect,’ and I came to Melbourne passionate about becoming an architect.

Max Walker
If you can find something that you’re really passionate about, whether you’re a man or a woman comes a lot less into play. Passion is a gender-neutralizing force.

I’ve been very passionate about renewable energy for many years, particularly solar energy and its capacity to bring abundant clean, sustainable energy to millions around the globe.

Richard Branson
I feel like I’ve been fortunate enough that I’ve gotten to meet and work with some really passionate people.

Vanessa Hudgens
Obviously, Kanye and I are very different in the way we express ourselves publicly. He’s so passionate… about art, about culture, about creativity. And he’s really good at it. And that honesty manifests itself in ways that are not politically correct, not socially acceptable sometimes.

John Legend
You give anybody a billion dollars, and of course they are passionate. Passion is one of those things like willpower in that there’s ‘magical thinking’ about it. You’ve got to be careful about ‘magical thinking.’

Scott Adams
Whatever you do, do with determination. You have one life to live; do your work with passion and give your best. Whether you want to be a chef, doctor, actor, or a mother, be passionate to get the best result.

Alia Bhatt
Man, 2013, I would expect an album from B.o.B and a Rock EP as well. My Rock EP is like… I take pride in my work and I’m not going to do something just to say that I can do it if I ain’t really passionate about doing it. I’m very passionate about my music. Sometimes I take it too seriously.

Earth was not built for six billion people all running around and being passionate about things. The world was built for about two million people foraging for roots and grubs.

Douglas Coupland
I loved the cooking; that was what I was passionate about, but getting to watch the guests eat – because you could see everything from the kitchen – just watching people eat and looking at the plates when they came back, just understanding, this is such an amazing job.

Michael Mina
Be passionate. Be courageous. Be your best.

Gabrielle Giffords
I’m a very romantic and passionate guy.

I get to wake up every day and create music. And even when it’s a tough moment as far as career ups and downs, it’s always something you’re passionate about, and it’s a beautiful way to spend your life.

Nick Jonas
For us, it is all about breaking the boundaries between different genres of music and combining different styles of music and performing what we are passionate about. We are so lucky that we can experience both worlds: the more intimate classical world and the wild and crazy world of rock n’ roll.

Luka Sulic
I am, and remain, passionate about news.

Valerie Trierweiler
My mom is very calm and quiet, so I think I got that from her. Because my dad is passionate and loud… It was always interesting, and I really enjoyed that my parents always included us in their lives.

Sofia Coppola
Find people who think like you and stick with them. Make only music you are passionate about. Work only with people you like and trust. Don’t sign anything.

Steve Albini
People get passionate about a song. It’s been my experience if you put out radio candy, something commercial, it doesn’t sell records.

Trace Adkins
Everyone has different goals. For myself, I would rather take less roles and be working on films that I’m passionate about, that are going to challenge me, and that I’m going to be growing from. I don’t ever want to take a movie just for the sake of working.

Amanda Crew
I was born and trained to communicate music, just as the sons were born and trained to hunt, and I was lucky to have grown up in Hungary, a country that lives and breathes music-that has a passionate belief in the power of music as a celebration of life.

Georg Solti
I want to work with anyone who’s passionate about telling a story. I obviously have a list of people I really love, but it’s a really long list.

Matt Bomer
I always wrote stories, but I do remember a particular moment in middle school where I became passionate about essay writing.

Rupi Kaur
Papa had some amazing qualities. He was a very spiritual person. He was very passionate about his work. He was a completely self-made man. At the same time, his generosity and kindness were two aspects of him that really defined his personality.

Ismail Merchant was just the most seductive, passionate, outrageous, driven, genius of a man.

Ann Marie Buerkle
When I look back over my life it’s almost as if there was a plan laid out for me – from the little girl who was so passionate about animals who longed to go to Africa and whose family couldn’t afford to put her through college. Everyone laughed at my dreams. I was supposed to be a secretary in Bournemouth.

Jane Goodall
Even though I started off being interested in news, and I spent 13 years of my career working in television sports, I always was passionate about television and movies.

Bob Iger
I’m a person who’s always been politically active and passionate about people’s rights.

A drop in younger children visiting libraries is of great concern. As children’s laureate, I am passionate about the role of libraries, both in schools and in the wider community. They are unique places where children can begin their journey as readers, as well as being creative hubs.

It is a privilege to be able to represent this sport and have a chance to share my love of Lucha with passionate wrestling fans around the globe.

Rey Mysterio
Some people are passionate about aisles, others about window seats.

Terry Jones
I was a sociology major. And it had nothing to do necessarily with law, which is ultimately – I went to law school. But what I tried to do was choose something that I was passionate about or something that I cared about.

Michelle Obama
Much of everyday life is filled with opportunities to be distracted. Our possessions… entertainment… cares and anxieties… and even the passionate desire and pursuit of things, some good and not so good, can keep our minds and hearts caught up in a flurry of activity.

Joyce Meyer
I’m proud I’m English and I’m passionate about my country.

Wayne Rooney
Cricket, politics, and cinema is what a majority in our country are most passionate about. They have the power to divide the best of friends depending on which side you are on.

Vijay Deverakonda
I was trained to be loud, passionate, direct. I didn’t realize for the longest time I was intimidating.

Dawn Steel
When I’m not touring, I hardly ever leave my house. Part of it is I get to do what I’m most passionate about, which is work on music and make new songs.

Washed Out
Nicki Minaj is a very strong woman who knows exactly what she wants. As an artist, I understand her, and I could see how she could be misunderstood by a lot of people, but she is really passionate about her art, and that’s something I really admire about her.

Bebe Rexha
I’m passionate about my race.

My mother was a passionate, complicated, sometimes fierce woman.

Christina Baker Kline
I am not a doctor or a scientist, but merely a passionate layperson, a filter, a messenger. I spoke with so many patients who are living normal, happy, fulfilled lives, and their enthusiasm and great quality of life convinced me that you can indeed live with cancer.

Suzanne Somers
I started in dance classes when I was, like, seven years old. And the arts in general, it kept me not only off the street, I grew up in South Central Los Angeles, so it kept my mind focused. It kept me passionate about something. So I wasn’t easily distracted.

Wendy Raquel Robinson
I want an audience that’s passionate, that can be engaged.

Rachel Stevens

Christopher Darden is a very passionate man. He wears his emotion on his sleeve.

Corey Taylor
The Browning love story? It is an ideal, all too rare, and yet I hardly think it strange. It would have been far stranger had the fates allowed those two brilliant passionate souls to beat themselves out in silence.

Marie Corelli
I’m passionate about what I do. I’d be naive to be passive.

Paul Mooney
Poetry endures when it possesses passionate and primally sincere clarity in the service of articulating universal human concerns.

Franz Wright
I am stupidly passionate about music; it has become a bit of drug. I buy tons of CDs and spend days listening to each and every one, putting notes on every song to know which tracks are good so that when I do my little MP3 collection, I know which songs to include.

Jacques Villeneuve
The only thing that may make me different from other people is I have passionate interests outside of work.

Eric Bana
I just wish the crowd I was associated with was more passionate about what they were doing and less consumed with the commerce of the art form.

Shia LaBeouf
I love the idea of being part of a campaign that captures the spirit of New York and the stories of women here, passionate about their dreams.

Rita Ora
I’ve never been passionate about just music, I’ve never seen myself going into music in that sense. My love for music has always been connected to the stories told through music, which is why I was drawn to theater and why I think ‘Glee’ is so powerful.

Grant Gustin
When someone comes up to me and says, ‘Mary, you helped save my marriage’, or, ‘Mary, you helped me get out of this abusive relationship’, I’m in it, really in their lives. And I’m so passionate about my feelings, but also about showing people the way through theirs.

Mary J. Blige
If you choose to do things that you are passionate about, you will not only do them better, but most importantly, you’ll be a significantly happier person.

Kristaps Porzingis
When I get on stage, my first goal is not to show my expertise, but on the contrary, to give a bit of happiness, of joy, of cheerfulness. I am firmly convinced that in order to sing well, you must love your neighbor and be passionate about life.

Andrea Bocelli
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.

William Butler Yeats
To become a villain, you had to have become disillusioned, and in order to become disillusioned you had to have been passionate about something you believed in that was shaken and ripped from your grasp as a protagonist in that stage of your life, leaving you disillusioned with God, if you will.

Matthew Davis
I need to be surrounded by people as passionate and as dedicated as I am.

Lauryn Hill
I’m so passionate about Panic! at the Disco and Brendon Urie. I’m obsessed with him.

Lara Fabian
I’m doing a little bit of acting, but I can’t really say it’s going to be a career or even that I’m really suited to it. It’s a whole other craft you have to study and be passionate about.

Sascha Radetsky
There’s a lot of people that fought for their country and that’s not something to be taken lightly. They gave their life, everything they had, they gave their lives, to give us what we have. That’s why I’m so passionate about my beliefs – because someone died.

Luke Scott
Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life.

Eric Hoffer
I kind of realized I could sing, so I played around with that for a while. And that led me to acting in itself, which I came more passionate about by the age of 15.

Toni Collette
I state in my book ‘Become Your Own Matchmaker,’ confidence is the key to any endeavor. Women don’t realize that when they do things they love and are passionate about – their confidence soars. Men are attracted to women who feel happy and decisive about life.

Patti Stanger
I’m going to call WWE like I call everything. Yes, I’m going to be passionate. Yes, I’m going to be excited, but at the same time, I’m hoping to get better as a storyteller, and I’m hoping to complement the people I work with who have been doing this a lot longer than I have.

Mauro Ranallo
If you have a fantastic idea you’re really passionate about and are making $100,000 in your job, if you can set aside some of that to invest in servers or contractors or other folks, that’s actually the best way to start a business in my opinion.

Matt Mullenweg
Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.

Julia Child
I look for people who’re passionate, dedicated to the text, and in whom I trust completely.

I’m often drawn to characters that are more obviously one thing. They’re passionate, and there is always an element of strength because I think every person possesses that in some way, even if they’ve experienced hardship in their lives.

Kate Winslet
Our understanding of the world around us is constantly being redefined and expanded, and so therefore, it is wiser to be passionate about seeking for truth than knowing it.

Bryant H. McGill
We are passionate about making it so that users enjoy the music that they want to enjoy but at the same time fairly compensates artists. That’s not the same as saving the music industry.

Daniel Ek
I had no intention of being a film producer, and I knew I wasn’t passionate about engineering. I was always set on having my own business, controlling my own destiny.

Will Packer
I feel really passionate now that talking with family, friends, or a counsellor is the way to deal with negative situations and difficult times.

Carolina Herrera
I always was passionate about science fiction and horror, and my parents enjoyed that as well.

I don’t want to do stories that don’t have a heart. I’m just not going to be satisfied with stories where I can’t be passionate about the subject, where I can’t make a difference.

Aaron Huey
I am clearly vulnerable to these more passionate and volatile unstable relationships. I am trying to not be so vulnerable.

Salman Rushdie
Whether it’s a movie I’m in or not, if there’s a good movie, and it’s low budget, and you know everyone’s done it just because they were passionate about it and they cared for it, if it has any kind of audience, it’s just a wonderful outcome.

Toni Collette
Contrary to current cynicism about past golden ages, the abstraction known as ‘the intelligent layperson’ does exist – in the form of millions of folks with a passionate commitment to continuous learning.

Stephen Jay Gould
Nothing is as important as passion. No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate.

Jon Bon Jovi
I am so passionate about representation because, growing up, I didn’t see myself, and now people can say, ‘I see myself there.’ We’re all trying to find where we are.

Noma Dumezweni
I’m going to be wrestling for as long as I can. It’s something I’m very passionate about and something that I love.

John Cena
Whether you’re an obstetrician or a third-grade teacher or a real estate agent, you know when you’re doing good work. You’re passionate about it.

John Galliano
I just want to produce and create projects that I’m passionate about and I love.

Through our great good fortune, in our youth our hearts were touched with fire. It was given to us to learn at the outset that life is a profound and passionate thing.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
The thing I want to see before I die is women achieving full equality in the world. I’m very passionate about injustice against women and there’s too much of it in the world. In so many parts of the world, women are not regarded as worthy or equal to men. In parts of the world, women are bought and sold.

Cherie Blair
The fans in the U.K. are so passionate and cool. It doesn’t matter what company you work for or which part of the country you’re in: everyone is super educated and respectful.

Adam Cole
When I sing, I think mostly about the music. But I know that, through singing, my body shows everything that I am. I am a very passionate man and I suffer a lot and have a lot of joy also. In my opinion, it is very important for me to find this stimulus and motivation for singing.

Andrea Bocelli
I feel that my drive and ambition is more American, while the passionate, laid-back side of me is all Brazilian.

Morena Baccarin
If you’re passionate about it, speak up about it. Just show up, do your part, and make your voice heard, because at the end of the day, all we have is our voice and our platforms and our character.

Lexi Underwood
As long as she is talented enough and passionate about doing it herself then I will be happy and support her. I think I will be sensible – my parents said I could only do it if I got my education and so I had something to fall back on.

Anna Friel
I’ve never had a grand plan. I’ve only just tried to keep open to many different possibilities, have fun and work with people who are passionate about what they do.

Steve Buscemi
I’m fascinated by people who have to reinvent themselves. I did it a few times – I was going to be a physicist before I was passionate about philosophy – and I realized that one more change, and I’m going to start looking like a dilettante.

Lenny Abrahamson
When I look at acting careers that I really admire, I see that it’s been a precise decision-making process for these people. They make decisions based on what they love, and they do only the things that they are passionate about. They play only characters that they can’t stop thinking about.

Taylor Swift
I can’t be passionate about something or really give myself to something if I don’t know it’s a hundred percent authentic to who I am.

Aimee Osbourne
It’s not getting any better, is it? I don’t want my 19-year-old boy going into the army. I love these little kids. They understand how passionate I am.

Burt Bacharach
I used to write songs that were deeply personal, but since I am becoming so passionate about the world around me, that passion and drive is starting to come into my work.

Sophie B. Hawkins
We face a conflict between civilisation and culture, which used to be on the same side. Civilisation means rational reflection, material wellbeing, individual autonomy and ironic self-doubt; culture means a form of life that is customary, collective, passionate, spontaneous, unreflective and irrational.

Terry Eagleton
We didn’t know that Mother had gone through a passionate love affair or that Father suffered from severe depression. Mother was preparing to break out of her marriage, Father threatening to take his own life.

Ingmar Bergman
I get passionate about certain subjects, and then I’ll write a whole play around it.

Scott Haze
Nobody likes to fail. I want to succeed in everything I do, which isn’t much. But the things that I’m really passionate about, if I fail at those, if I’m not successful, what do I have?

Our passionate preoccupation with the sky, the stars, and a God somewhere in outer space is a homing impulse. We are drawn back to where we came from.

Eric Hoffer
Americans are less selfish than some of our politicians believe and will respond with reason and resilience to passionate clarity.

Jennifer Egan
Anyone who is passionate about what they do will have a better chance of connecting with future generations than those who simply follow transient trends. At least their work will have a distinctive character, and this is what people respond to, I believe.

Giorgio Armani
I am passionate about music and my work to the bottom of my very soul, but I also very much enjoy good clothes and some of the finer things in life. Rappers do, too, and perhaps it’s one of the reasons I’ve been welcomed so warmly into their world.

Clive Davis
I’m really passionate about music. I do love acting, but music is the end goal for me.

KJ Apa
Heart is what drives us and determines our fate. That is what I need for my characters in my books: a passionate heart. I need mavericks, dissidents, adventurers, outsiders and rebels, who ask questions, bend the rules and take risks.

Isabel Allende
My dad went to jail for a long time. We lost everything, and the situation never resolved itself. My parents had this sort of passionate, disastrous desire for each other – not ideal to grow up in.

Natalia Kills
Being a scientist is a special privilege: for it brings the opportunity to be creative, the passionate quest for answers to nature’s most precious secrets, and the warm friendships of many valued colleagues.

When I’m not acting, I’m playing golf. I’m pretty passionate about it.

Lucas Black
Giving a true speech, a true, passionate speech, is old-school football.

Richard Sherman
I find that it’s not the numbers but the quality of the audience. That’s why it got to be such a big thing when I left Microsoft, because I had an interested audience; not huge, but passionate. The passionate ones are the ones who change society.

Robert Scoble
It makes common sense to be managed by results and it’s freeing to know you are in control of your own destiny. I’m so passionate about this because I have seen how merit-based judgment has helped create individual successes and yield a better system for everyone.

Maynard Webb
Mohammed Ali. He’s much more than a boxer. He’s also a passionate idealist who fought for his people. I respect him – and, of course, he was very handsome in his younger days.

Laila Rouass
There will always be ways to pay my rent, whether I wind up having to be a waitress on the side or whatever it is, but I think it’s so important for me to do things that I’m passionate about.

Juno Temple
I only take causes or write about things that I am passionate about, and I do it with a certain flair and a sort of wink and a nod.

Jason Calacanis
We mistake politics for legislative debate. You can be passionate without being personal.

Richard Dreyfuss
I remember vividly what it’s like to read as a 10-year-old – that passionate inhabiting of a book.

China Mieville
What I love about AT&T is that they are just as passionate as I am about rebooting the American dream.

Chris Gardner
We learned that there was a super intelligent, passionate audience that wanted material that was nuanced and detailed and authentic.

Aaron Ehasz
Now you can create your own Q&A site and be recognized as an expert on any topic you’re passionate about in a way that is fast and easier than starting a new website.

Gil Penchina
People should pursue what they’re passionate about. That will make them happier than pretty much anything else.

I’m as passionate as any car owner or car collector that has one car or 300 cars.

Bill Goldberg
Young Chinese, who have grown up in an age of prosperity and stability, are typically the most passionate defenders of the Chinese political and economic way.

Evan Osnos
At an individual level just as much as a corporate level, this notion of if you’re not really passionate about the work you’re doing in a world of mounting pressure, you’re going to experience more and more stress. You’re going to burn out. You’re going to become marginalized.

John Hagel III
I am really passionate about sports in general – especially water sports.

Enrique Iglesias
I think I’ve kind of been mistaken for somebody who’s trying to be a spokesperson for animal rights, and the fact is I’m not qualified to be a spokesperson. I am passionate about it, but I’m not trying to make other people do what I do.

Neko Case
My husbands all repeatedly said the same thing – that I was not a very passionate woman.

Debbie Reynolds
People don’t care enough. They don’t get worked up enough. They don’t get angry enough. They don’t get passionate enough. I’d rather somebody hate what I do than be indifferent to it.

Jonathan Safran Foer
Soledad Barrio is clearly a master – of thrilling steps and passionate movement. She stalks, she circles, she struts, she snaps her head – her feet drill the stage.

Robert Gottlieb
I think the rating system is a way to open more discussion with wrestling fans about matches. To me, it’s just another outlet to voice their opinions, so that’s why I think they are so passionate about it.

Adam Cole
Of all the depressing abuses of language in business, there is none that gets me so incensed as the rampant overuse of the word ‘passionate’ in company slogans, marketing blurbs, mission statements and on the sides of vans.

Tom Hodgkinson
I think I’ve been skeptical of violent passion for a long time. I think ‘Pinkerton’ is about that a lot – seeing how, every time I’ve felt really passionate for someone, as soon as I ‘acquire’ them or feel like I’ve acquired them, the passion goes away.

Rivers Cuomo
I feel like everyone wants to make a movie that they feel passionate about watching.

Mike Birbiglia
I’m fighting hard to make the world a better place, and you can, too. Get involved with your community, be a leader, set an example, be passionate, be your best.

Gabrielle Giffords
You actually can be passionate about things like making rational decisions based on a thorough airing of the facts, a reasonable and informed debate, a respect for the Constitution that includes, um, knowing about it.

Rachel Sklar
I’m deeply, deeply passionate about creating peace and well-being in the classroom, and well-being as a global nation.

Goldie Hawn
I have the potential to be very strong and powerful, sometimes angry, sometimes passionate. I also can be shy and withhold that because I am afraid. I don’t want to freak anybody out with my passion… So I struggle with that all the time.

Idina Menzel
I’m always curious about anyone who has enough passion to go onstage and say, ‘This is what I’m really passionate about.’ It’s always worth listening to.

Clemence Poesy
You must find something that you deeply love and are passionate about and are willing to sacrifice a lot to achieve.

Howard Schultz
I like to work with people who want to make films because they are passionate about films and not because they want to sell films and make money. I am not for people who get the most saleable actor and then the most saleable director and sell the film.

Ajith Kumar
‘In My City’ was my first single. It has a very special place in my heart, and I am beyond excited to bring the amazing energy of the track to the NFL’s passionate fans.

Priyanka Chopra
I am extremely passionate about digital media and as a longtime user and fan of Yahoo!

Ross Levinsohn
I wasn’t a great cook, but I was a passionate one.

Kathleen Flinn
I am passionate about God, about Jesus, and what His influences do to me.

Don’t just do something because it’s a trendy idea and will make you a lot of money. The reason I say that is because any kind of venture involves going through difficult times. If you’re doing something you are passionate about and really believe in, then that will carry you through.

Jerry Greenfield
People use GoPros to capture the experiences they are passionate about.

Nick Woodman
I love that ‘Much Ado About Nothing,’ passionate, smart fighting. I love fighting with guys, and that’s something that I don’t get to see: arguing at a high level with a member of the opposite sex. That didn’t really happen that much on ‘The Office.’ I just like that ‘Moonlighting,’ Benedick-Beatrice type of thing.

Mindy Kaling
When your child comes to you at a young age and declares he or she is passionate about this or that, the natural tendency for many parents, out of love, is to simply support that decision. That’s the path of least resistance, but it’s not necessarily the best path, in my opinion.

Naveen Jain
I think it’s good for moms to work. I have three daughters, so I like them to see me working and doing something I’m passionate about.

Mary McCormack
You can’t connect with something you’re not passionate about.

Gemma Arterton
I know stories of Pac, but I was really, really young when he passed. The fact that he was such a thespian, and so passionate about his craft, was shocking to me in a way.

Annie Ilonzeh
The joy of YouTube is that you can create content about anything you feel passionate about, however silly the subject matter.

Zoe Sugg
I may be more passionate about my comedy because that’s the one place where I feel comfortable – because I’m in the now. Performing is the only time of the day when I have to really force every ounce of concentration into whatever’s happening in that moment.

Howie Mandel
I feel very passionate about maintaining the same level of standard and respect for the food as an Iron Chef myself.

Alex Guarnaschelli
Colby Jordan is one of the most fashion-forward and passionate girls I know. She gives me these young Anna Wintour vibes when I’m around her!

I’m passionate about encouraging girls to be confident in their own skin.

Sadie Sink
Acting is something I’m extremely passionate about.

Bindi Irwin
I’ve always been passionate about fashion.

Billy Porter
I’m very passionate.

Abbie Cornish
My dad has definitely sacrificed a lot for me, and I don’t know if I could do it if I was in his shoes. Leaving your life behind and chasing this dream because your kid is passionate about this sport.

Chloe Kim
There is nothing I’m any more passionate than empowering the next generation.

T. D. Jakes
Acting is something I appreciate, and I think it’s been an amazing experience. But I’m not passionate about acting the way you probably should be to call yourself an actor.

Evangeline Lilly
Now here I am playing a passionate young Irishman who would die for what he believes in.

James D’arcy
Don’t be afraid to step through some of that uncertainty that you might feel when you’re passionate about doing something.

Kim Reynolds
Growing up, my dad owned a restaurant in Washington, DC, and food was something I was passionate about. But when I finally got into it, I felt like it was so late in the game; that’s why I worked seven days a week at Craft and Mercer Kitchen. I wanted to see how far I could take it.

David Chang
I’m a geek who loves fashion. There’s been a reinvention of the word geek. It means being passionate about anything that’s under the radar or sort of frowned upon, like Comic-Con.

Kristen Bell
We’re all complex creatures, and we shouldn’t have to pick one thing to be passionate about. Life isn’t black and white, so we shouldn’t live that way.

Cassadee Pope
There are two types of conductors. One is the good conductor who can do passionate music but also listen to the singers and do the orchestra. And then there are great conductors, who have their own opinion on the music, who are ruling everything – and not listening much to the singers, but the orchestra play amazingly.

Anna Netrebko
I played recorder in assembly, then I became passionate about the guitar, I don’t know why. I started on electric then moved to acoustic – my brother was playing bass in the next room.

Ellie Goulding
I was lucky because I had parents who have enabled me to do whatever I was passionate about and never held my siblings and me back from anything. But I think a lot of people don’t have that experience.

Lynsey Addario
Upon graduation, I hit a wall. All of my good friends from UCLA were taking on jobs they were passionate about, and I felt left behind. It took a bit of soul searching, but in the end, I finally had the guts to pursue acting.

Karen Fukuhara
I’ve always been passionate about geometry and the study of three-dimensional forms.

Erno Rubik
Persistence is incredibly important. Persistence proves to the person you’re trying to reach that you’re passionate about something, that you really want something.

Norah O’Donnell
A lot of the reason the Universal version of ‘Heights’ went away is that they were afraid they didn’t have a big enough Latino star to bankroll this movie. The people I dealt with at the studio who wanted to make this movie were very passionate about it.

Lin-Manuel Miranda
Teens are passionate, questioning, curious, have a bit of the idealism I still cling to, and they’re making decisions for the first time that can alter the course of their lives – and sometimes, the course of the world.

Mary E. Pearson
After you do a play like ‘The Normal Heart,’ it’s hard to find something you feel so passionate about.

John Benjamin Hickey
Acting is strenuous, both physically and mentally. But if you are passionate about it, nothing can be more exciting than acting.

Nivin Pauly
I always wanted to have my own boutiques. I’m so passionate about clothing and always have been so business-minded.

Amy Childs
The scientist and the artist are both passionate about their exploration. What leads to my work is that I’m equally an artist and an engineer.

Arthur Ganson
When we’re talking about our title tracks, ‘DNA’ is about the expression of a young, passionate love.

I have seen how effective language attached to policies that are mainstream and delivered by people who are passionate and effective can change the course of history.

Frank Luntz
She was deeply passionate about the sacred feminine.

Dan Brown
I have career ADD, he says. I have career dissatisfaction. Even as a young kid, I’d have that. I’d get really passionate about something and then I’d realize, ‘I don’t want to do that!

Mark Consuelos
I am often fond of saying the Trekkers are passionate about a hobby, their hobby is ‘Star Trek.’ They are by and large very imaginative, very intelligent people, and they certainly have been more than generous to me.

Kate Mulgrew
I’m probably less volatile and tempestuous than a lot of Aries, but I think I’m probably quite loud and outgoing and passionate. Maybe a bit difficult or stubborn.

Mackenzie Davis
I’m passionate about owning a football team in my hometown.

Robert Kraft
Probably my worst quality is that I get very passionate about what I think is right.

Hillary Clinton
