CORAL GABLES, Fla., Feb. 2 (UPI) -- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor told University of Miami students the key to success is to do "a few things, but do them well."

"Love and passion, that is the only way you do something well," Sotomayor said Friday in a speech at the BankUnited Center in Coral Cables, Fla. "Do a few things, but do them well."

Sotomayor spoke on a number of topics that inspired her to write her memoir, "My Beloved World," including the death of her father and how she hoped to reach out to those who also lost parents early in their lives.

"I began to understand that I couldn't talk to every child in the country," Sotomayor said. "I could give them the answers in a book."

When asked what other profession she might ever have considered instead of law, Sotomayor said there was none, The Miami Herald reported.

"This fish found her pond, and she ain't changing it," she said.
