Passion (from the Latin verb patior, meaning to suffer or to endure, also related to compatible) is an emotion applied to a very strong feeling about a person or thing. Passion is an intense emotion compelling feeling, enthusiasm, or desire for someone or something. Passion can be expressed as a feeling of unusual excitement, enthusiasm or compelling emotion towards a subject, idea, person, or object. A person is said to have a passion for someone or something when they have a strong positive affinity for it. A love for someone or something and a passion for someone or something are very similar feelings.

“Passion very often makes the wisest men fools, and very often too inspires the greatest fools with wit.”
François de La Rochefoucauld, Moral Maxims and Reflections, no. 7 (1665-1678)
