This is the final test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him.

Ignite your passion

Ability is about more than skill. Ability is about more than knowledge.

Though skill and knowledge and experience are important, there’s something even more powerful that drives ability. It is passion.

If you do not have a strong desire, fueled by passion, it doesn’t really matter how much skill you have. If you lack passion, it doesn’t matter how much experience or knowledge you have.

When you are truly passionate, that brings your skills and knowledge to life. When you are truly passionate, even if you lack sufficient skills you will find a way to acquire them.

Passion compels and enables you to connect with whatever is necessary to express and fulfill that passion. Passion pushes you into action, and supplies the energy for perseverance.

What are the things that ignite your passion? It’s well worth your time and effort to know exactly what they are.

— Ralph Marston
