"Find your passion. Lots of people will glibly say this to you. Here’s what I mean. I’m not referring to passing fancies. The passion I want you to find takes work. It represents less an emotional sensation than an intellectual achievement. You won’t find it by sitting passively in the classroom or surfing the web. You have to work hard at finding something you can tackle with passion for a big chunk of your life and find meaning in it. That’s an active and an urgent task. You need to start it now."

Former Dartmouth President Jim Yong Kim
