“Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.”
- Joseph Campbell
“If your private dreams are out of accord with the public mythology you’ll be in trouble if you’re forced to live in that system – many visionaries and leaders… they’ve moved out of the society that would have protected them and into the dark forest, the world of fire, of original experience. Original experience has not been interpreted for you so you’ve got to work out your life for yourself… The courage to face trials and to bring in a whole new body of possibilities into the field of interpreted experience for other people to experience is the hero’s deed.”
