Why have a passion worth suffering and sacrificing for?
Yes, Christ chose a passionate existence... but why must we?
I sat and pondering these questions, trying to think of an example of a passionless life to demonstrate the pity of passionless existence. But I couldn't think of one.
The passionless don't make it into stories.
Perhaps... this is example enough.
