‘Enthusiasm’—en theos—a god within

Posted by bryanzug - 2006/04/12

Here is a cool quote from Louis Pasteur found in the new book “Exuberance: The Passion for Life” by Kay Redfield Jamison

The Greeks bequeathed to us one of the most beautiful words in our language—the word ‘enthusiasm’—en theos—a god within. The grandeur of human actions is measured by the inspiration from which they spring. Happy is he who bears a god within, and who obeys it.
