There are two tests in life, more important than any other test. On Monday morning, when you wake up, do you feel in the pit of your stomach you can’t wait to go to work? And when you’re ready to go home Friday afternoon, do you say, ‘I can’t wait to go home’? If you can say yes to both those tests, God has been good to you, don’t complain.

It's the soul's duty to be loyal to its own desires. It must abandon itself to its master passion.
