What drives me…

April 21, 2008

I was remembering an old quote that had impressed me in my younger years. I searched for it on Google and found it. What a nice tool to have available. Here it is:

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them”.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862)

This thought frightened me when I was a college student, and it has been my motivation for all of my adult life. I refuse to go to the grave with my song still in me. While it’s taking a lifetime to realize the potential inside, I try as hard as I can to be open to it and honest about it. Whenever I can, I follow my passion. That has brought me to the study of media and society and the relationship between the two. It’s really just a new outgrowth of my long-time interest in Cognitive Psychology.

So I embrace the new, and explore with my mind and my heart. We can’t forget to have passion in our lives.
