Quote of the Day: Thomas Keller on How Desire Is More Important Than Passion

Thomas Keller's The French Laundry in Yountville, CA

"When people talk about passion, they’re really talking about desire. I’ve never seen anybody who’s passionate about something consistently, every day, for 20 years. It’s just impossible. Passion ebbs and flows, as it should. And we all know it ebbs and flows. We get a new bicycle, we’re extremely passionate about it, but we can’t be passionate about it every day. We don’t ride it every day. We ride it once a week. "
