The only way to do great work
is to love what you do. If you
haven't found it yet, keep
looking. Don't settle. As with
all matters of the heart, you
will know it when you find it.

I believe true success is
achieved when people find
their passion.Because then
they will work harder, fight
longer, and reach higher
for their success.
