This comment is old but I wanted to add something to this discussion: I don’t think the quote is telling you to find something you love and let it destroy you, as /u/FountainsOfFluids implied below. I think it’s more akin to structuring your life in a manner that allows you to remain passionate about the things you love.

So, that could mean you find a comfortable position that pays a livable wage. Work time is their’s but non-work time is yours. You punch-in and punch-out and then go do the thing that *really* inspires you.

Or, you live vastly below your means and throw everything you have into your passion – rent a shitty studio apartment, have a beater car but have top-of-the-line instruments. Or, an abundance of painting materials and canvases. Or, write constantly. Or, microbrew every night. I don’t know… I’m a musician so that’s what I identify with the most.

So, think living poor but passionately rich and satisfied.

This may not lead you down a very successful professional career path but at least it would allow you to continue the things you enjoy whilst also surviving.
