Passion

It is foolish to pretend that one is fully recovered from a disappointed passion. Such wounds always leave a scar.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) U.S. poet.

Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music -- the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.

Henry Miller (1891-1980) American author.

Do what you love. Know you own bone; gnaw at it, bury it, unearth it, and gnaw it still.

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) American naturalist, poet and philosopher.

Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things.

Denis Diderot (1713-1784) French philosopher.

Our passion are the true phoenixes; when the old one is burnt out, a new one rises from its ashes.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832) German poet, novelist and dramatist.

Our passions do not live apart in locked chambers but dress in their small wardrobe of notions, bring their provisions to a common table and mess together, feeding out of the common store according to their appetite.

George Eliot (1819-1880) British writer.

There is only one passion, the passion for happiness.

Denis Diderot (1713-1784) French philosopher.

We must act out passion before we can feel it.

Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980) French writer and philosopher.

Passion is the trigger of success.
