The writer can grow as a person or he can shrink. ... His curiosity, his reaction to life must not diminish.

In particular I may mention Sophocles the poet, who was once asked in my presence, How do you feel about love, Sophocles? are you still capable of it? to which he replied, Hush! if you please: to my great delight I have escaped from it, and feel as if I had escaped from a frantic and savage master. I thought then, as I do now, that he spoke wisely. For unquestionably old age brings us profound repose and freedom from this and other passions.

And it makes them feel less vulnerable for a little while.
Sylvia Mathews Burwell
I have been fortunate to work in places where people have a passion for their work. At HHS the passion sort of exceeds passion - it's a vocation....
