Why Passion Matters…

Iconic environmental activist, Captain Paul Watson, explains why passion is more important to him than experience, when he selects volunteers to join the fight to save whales.

As a wolf advocate I wholeheartedly embrace Captain Watson’s philosophy.

Hold onto your passion, wear it as a badge of honor, let your warrior spirit drive you on!

Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things……Denis Diderot,  French philosopher.

  1. So true!

  2. Yes, it’s those of us that are passionate that get the real picture. And we need to remind those that have lost common sense to GREED that we will not give up the fight!

    • I agree. It is the intensity of interest and concern that gets things done, even if we are alone at our computers and phones. That intensity would help much more if it were combined into large groups who would protest and get the message across that we are not alone, that we are serious, and that we will not give up. I really believe it is the visible and combined numbers that are missing here.

  3. the eternal problem – those who have passion (the right passion, that is, the compassionate passion) don’t have the big money, which make sense really

  4. Paul Watson is a true hero. He speaks from his own experiences and it his passion that has driven him to the place he is in life now. I tell my children that in order to find true happiness in life, seek your passion and grab hold of it and never let go.
    My youngest son once invited his friends from college to come over one evening and he asked me to speak to them about the rescue work that I do. I asked him why did he want me to do this, ( thinking they really would not be interested). He said,” because mom I know how passionate you are about the work you do and I’d like you to share it with my friends”. That night, I honored his request. I told his friends about rescue and shared many stories with them about the work that I do. I also shared with them the many struggles that go along with the day to day work of trying to rescue animals on death row and how it is never easy.
    I admire every single one of the people here and I know we all share the same fire and passion for the wolves. In my soul I will always fight for the wolves and I will never ever let anyone are anything take away that energy from me.Its all about the burning need to turn something wrong into something right and one day when the fight is over, it will be all worth it, knowing we tried to make a difference for those animals that have no voice, because we are there voice and we must never give up. That is what true passion is all about. Bert c.

    • Right On, I agree with you

  5. In my time being a animal rights activist I find these words to speak more truth to embrace love and compassion for all, human or non.

    “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
    Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher

    • Nice, Thanks for sharing.

  6. The worse these people behave, it just makes us stronger and more determined.

  7. I pray that someday Wolves will be free to roam, I cant beleive what they go through, Huinters are Arseholes, or Perhaps making up for there small Penises!

  9. I am spending the next 10 days passionately campaigning for the protection of the whales this week fighting for their lives against the Japanese whaling fleet. The world governments are not intervening. The Sea Shepherd group has all ships there, but literally hundreds of endanged whales lives are at stake under the guise of killing for “Scientific Research.” I am reblogging this post as part of my campaign to raise the passion of ALL bloggers during this week. It is up to us as individuals to take action and use all tools and influence available to protect our ocean mammals . . . who cannot speak for themselves. Thank you for all that you do. Reblogging! ~Gerean Pflug for The Animal Spirits

    I am spending the next 10 days passionately campaigning for the protection of the whales. I am fighting with the “pen” and words and my social networking tools. I am an individual fighting for their lives against the Japanese whaling fleet. The world governments are not intervening.
