Haven read a lot of books, spoken to great mentors and interviewed many successful entrepreneurs, one primary theme keeps coming up. i.e. Have PASSION for what you do! A lot of entrepreneurs reference PASSION as the fuel that powers their dreams. With this is mind, I went in search of quotes that reference passion. Here are a few.
