Do what you love and the money will follow.
A man without passion would be like a body without a soul. Or even more grotesque, like a soul without a body.
Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.
The inordinate love of money, no doubt, may be and is 'the root of all evil,' but money itself, when properly used, is not only a 'handy thing to have in the house,' but affords the gratification of blessing our race by enabling its possessor to enlarge the scope of human happiness and human influence.
Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.
Working hard for something we don't care is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.
