Gnaw at your bone
Funny how this quote has lost its original meaning over the years.
Too often, I see misuse of words. Quotes being used in the wrong context. My favorite is listed above. Gnaw your bone. Some may think, it means to do the same thing over and over again. I guess if the “thing” is your passion, it may apply.
But I think, what the author really meant was that we continually be honest (close to the bone) about our true passions. And we should be persistent about working it (gnaw, bury, unearth) and never forget the passion that lies within us. That’s my take on it anyway.
My happy moment: Living my passion, daily.
