Understood

"It's bad enough not to be doing what your passion is...It's twice as painful to be doing something that's within the work of what your passion is. The very work itself demeans what you love."

-Dustin Hoffman, actor

I just saw the Kennedy Center honors the other night and Morgan Freeman, an actor whose work I love, didn't get his big break until he was 50-he did smaller plays, etc until then-never giving up hope. His perseverance is amazing as is the fact that the world almost missed him.

Thanks, L. "The world almost missed him." A beautiful phrase. And of course, a sad thought, he is remarkable.
