We work in the dark, we do what we can, we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.
Henry James

It's a beautful sentence, true for art, but I think, also true for every life that has been intensely lived.

I agree. In a world of confusion and incertitude all we really have is our passion.
