When you do something you love, love spreads through your work and gives it life. And work that lives and breathes is work that gets noticed. If you are not doing what you love, you should be. You can be. Even if it is not your livelihood, make doing what you love a part of your life.

There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you — of kindness and consideration and respect — not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn’t know you had.
