Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word pasion.


  1. Pasion

    Pasion was an ancient Greek slave from the 4th century BC. He was owned by the bankers Antisthenes and Archestratus, located at Piraeus, the harbor five miles out of Athens. During his slavery, he quickly rose to chief clerk in charge of a money-changing table at the port, and proved so valuable that he was finally freed as reward for his faithful service. When his owners retired, Pasion inherited the bank and established a shield factory. The gifts he provided Athens included one thousand shields and a trireme. Ultimately, Pasion was granted Athenian citizenship and started investing in real estate in order to accumulate more wealth. When he became too old to work, Pasion had Phormio, another slave, take care of the bank. When Pasion died, his widow married Phormio in order to keep the bank in the family. Pasion's son, Apollodorus, did not engage in banking but lived off his inheritance like a gentleman; Pasion had left 20 talents in land and 40 in outstanding debt. Much of what we know about Pasion comes from speeches Apollodorus gave in lawsuits. These come down to us among the speeches Demosthenes wrote for litigants, but it is now thought that Apollodorus wrote them himself.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Lunes parece ser el día más apreciado e ingrata, aunque Lunes significa el comienzo de una nueva semana de trabajo, y la mejor oportunidad de un nuevo comienzo 52 veces al año. En mi opinión, cuando se tiene pasión por lo que haces en tu vida, cualesquiera y todos los días de la semana se convierte en un día maravilloso para esperar. Todos los lunes se convierte Lunes mágico, en lugar de Lunes mundano, sólo con su amor y pasión por su trabajo.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Ken la infancia, muchas personas sueñan con salir corriendo para unirse al circo. Pero luego crecen y encontrar un trabajo adecuado. A veces me pregunto que por lo menos algunos deben haber seguido sus sueños de unirse a un circo, de lo contrario no habrá un circo alrededor. Es todo acerca de seguir los propios sueños con total pasión, a pesar de que está a punto de unirse a un circo ..... y uno no tiene que huir para perseguir los sueños de uno!
