New-found Passion

Before I typed ‘Passion’ in the title I actually googled it first. Of course I know what it means in English but I bet a lot of you didn’t know (unless you’re a Linguistics major) that it came from the Latin verb patī meaning to suffer. Now that added a different light to saying you are passionate about something, I always thought it to be something good and positive, talking about something you are fond of and you love deeply. But I guess the Latin term serves just right, for I believe Passion is when you don’t mind suffering doing those things you love most.
