  5. I read this at Modern Mrs. DarcyYou’re not meant to do what you love. You’re meant to do what you’re good at. … What do you think? I tend to agree. “If everybody did what they thought they loved, the important things wouldn’t get done. To function as a society, there are labors that are necessary. Someone has to do them. Is that person robbed of a life of passion, because they had to choose a life of skill and purpose? No, of course not.”
