I am passionate about what I do and am drawn to those who live according to passion and principle (in a non-dogmatic, secular kind of way). I am driven equally by Goethe's maxim "the dangers of life are infinite and safety is among them," and Diderot's "the purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things." Not eating anything bigger than your head is also a good rule of thumb.
