Passion quotes by Avery Aster
#1. I have to go home, Masi.
You are my home, bella. I am lost without you. He couldn't speak. There were no words to recoil the loss consuming him. Massimo brought his hands up to her face. Kissing her one last time. He had to for his sanity. And he did with great passion, knowing he'd hurt her face when she kissed him back. But she did. He heard the cry in her throat as their tongues danced. Warm tears touched his palms as they continued to kiss. His fingertips were wet with sadness. He kept on kissing her. Unable to stop, he needed ten more seconds. Ti amo, I love you. Please don't leave. I've waited my whole life for you. When he pulled his face back, she cried, and he realized he did also. #Quote by Avery Aster
Passion quotes by Lee Gutkind
#2. I am a writer and editor with a passion for true storytelling. To me, science matters, research matters and knowledge matters, whatever the field. #Quote by Lee Gutkind
Passion quotes by Maggie Stiefvater

Passion quotes by Honore De Balzac
#4. They ended as all great passions do end - by a misunderstanding. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Passion quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#5. According to Keltar legend, each Druid born into the clan was destined for a soul mate, a perfect match in heart and mind, as well as body, coming together with an explosive, incendiary passion that could not be denied. If the Keltar male exchanged the sacred Druid binding vows with his true love, and his mate willingly returned them, they could bind their souls together for all eternity, in this life and forever beyond. The vows linked them inextricably. 'Twas said if a Keltar gave the vows and they were not returned, he would be forever incomplete, missing a part of his heart, aching for the love of a woman he could never have, eternally bound to her, through this life and all his future existence, whether in the cycle of rebirth, heaven, hell, or even an eternal Unseelie prison. If aught must be lost ... the legendary vows began, 'twill be my life for yours ... #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Passion quotes by Maya Angelou
#6. Seek patience and passion in equal amounts. Patience alone will not build the temple. Passion alone will destroy its walls. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Passion quotes by Richie Norton
#7. Follow your passion and learn how to make money at it. Or don't follow your passion and learn to make money at that. They are the same. It's a choice. #Quote by Richie Norton
Passion quotes by Avina Celeste
#8. You need to remember why you started. What gave you the boost of passion that drove you to begin? What told your mind that you could indeed do anything that you set your mind to? Find the source of your passion. When you want to end, remember your beginnings. There was a reason you started and that will be the reason why you finish. Find your passion. Remember the beginning. You started and now you must finish. You can do it. You believed it once and you will believe it again. #Quote by Avina Celeste
Passion quotes by Louis De Bernieres
#9. Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. #Quote by Louis De Bernieres
Passion quotes by Assegid Habtewold
#10. If you've passion- the desire to succeed at all cost, there won't be any lack or limitation that could stop you. Passion wipes out excuses. #Quote by Assegid Habtewold
Passion quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#11. Happy are those lovers who, when their senses require rest, can fall back upon the intellectual enjoyments afforded by the mind! Sweet sleep then comes, and lasts until the body has recovered its general harmony. On awaking, the senses are again active and always ready to resume their action. #Quote by Giacomo Casanova
Passion quotes by Gary Vaynerchuk
#12. If people say you shouldn't pursue business around your passion they are haters. Don't believe them. #Quote by Gary Vaynerchuk
Passion quotes by Emmanuelle Soni-Dessaigne
#13. I hear you talking to me in a dream
(Your kiss felt asleep on my lips)
I see you coming back from December
And slowly enter in my shelter
(Your warmth, which all my nights depend on)
You tell me about your immense love
(We can heal from certain wounds)
You tell me about your divine love
(It has the shape of your hands) #Quote by Emmanuelle Soni-Dessaigne
Passion quotes by Gunter Grass
#14. Art is accusation, expression, passion. Art is a fight to the finish between black charcoal and white paper. #Quote by Gunter Grass
Passion quotes by Lord Acton
#15. Fanaticism in religion is the alliance of the passions she condemns with the dogmas she professes. #Quote by Lord Acton
Passion quotes by Pierre Abelard
#16. I had wished to find in philosophy and religion a remedy for my disgrace; I searched out an asylum to secure me from love ... duty, reason and decency, which upon other occasions have some power over me, are here useless. The Gospel is a language I do not understand when it opposes my passion ... but when love has once been sincere how difficult it is to determine to love no more! 'Tis a thousand times more easy to renounce the world than love. I hate this deceitful, faithless world; I think no more of it ... #Quote by Pierre Abelard
Passion quotes by George Eliot
#17. The intensity of her religious disposition, the coercion it exercised over her life, was but one aspect of a nature altogether ardent, theoretic, and intellectually consequent: and with such a nature struggling in the bands of a narrow teaching, hemmed in by a social life which seemed nothing but a labyrinth of petty courses, a walled-in maze of small paths that led no whither, the outcome was sure to strike others as at once exaggeration and inconsistency. The thing which seemed to her best, she wanted to justify by the completest knowledge; and not to live in a pretended admission of rules which were never acted on. Into this soul-hunger as yet all her youthful passion was poured; the union which attracted her was one that would deliver her from her girlish subjection to her own ignorance, and give her the freedom of voluntary submission to a guide who would take her along the grandest path. #Quote by George Eliot
Passion quotes by Emma Chase
#18. The two of us were different. Right from the start, and in every way.
Passion that could tear the whole world down around us. Love that would not be ignored or denied. Devotion that would last beyond a lifetime.
These would be our legacy – our gifts to the ones who would follow in our footsteps. It would be scored on their bones and branded on their souls.
We just didn't know it then.
Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story.
This is ours. #Quote by Emma Chase
Passion quotes by Mary Wibberley
#19. His grey eyes were shadowed, mysterious, and she sensed the power within him, saw the hard lines of his expressive mouth soften momentarily as he murmured:
"What a girl!" His free hand reached out to touch her face, and she could scarcely breathe. "Let me - go," but the last word was lost as his lips came down on hers in a brief hard kiss that held no passion, only insult. Incensed, she tried to push him away and was imprisoned within the circle of his arms instantly Helpless, overpowered, she jerked her head to escape further punishment and he took hold of her hair and held her completely helpless as he kissed her a second time. Harder still, ruthless - only this time something changed. Quite suddenly the kiss no longer hurt her. She found herself melting into a delirious response. found to her horror that she was enjoying it, discovered that the imprisoning arms that held her were not steel bands after all, but were warm and wonderful instead... #Quote by Mary Wibberley
Passion quotes by Jeremy Collier
#20. Intemperance is a dangerous companion. It throws many people off their guard, betrays them to a great many indecencies, to ruinous passions, to disadvantages in fortune; makes them discover secrets, drive foolish bargains, engage in play, and often to stagger from the tavern to the stews. #Quote by Jeremy Collier
Passion quotes by Adam Smith
#21. The man who indulges us in this natural passion, who invites us into his heart, who, as it were, sets open the gates of his breast to us, seems to exercise a species of hospitality more delightful than any other. No man, who is in ordinary good temper, can fail of pleasing, if he has the courage to utter his real sentiments as he feels them, and because he feels them. #Quote by Adam Smith
Passion quotes by Emmanuelle Soni-Dessaigne
#22. I see -
Your bare skin
Shining the sun of spring
Your neck refreshed
By an indolent breeze
Your tangled hair
Our lips shared
I see -
The ultimate landscape of your beauty. #Quote by Emmanuelle Soni-Dessaigne
Passion quotes by Caroline Gordon
#23. Passion, once unleashed, has a way of unleashing other passions
a principle adhered to as firmly by the police force of any large modern city as by the Greek tragedians. #Quote by Caroline Gordon
Passion quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#24. It has been observed before that images, however beautiful, though faithfully copied from nature, and as accurately represented in words, do not of themselves characterize the poet. They become proofs of original genius only as far as they are modified by a predominant passion; or by associated thoughts or images awakened by that passion; or when they have the effect of reducing multitude to unity, or succession to an instant; or lastly, when a human and intellectual life is transferred to them from the poet's spirit. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Passion quotes by Jamie Freveletti
#25. Last Saturday night I was in a club on the South Side of Chicago listening to live rock music and talking to a guitar playing veteran of the music scene in the city. He looked and talked like the musicians that I recall from my childhood; he was a thin, cigarette smoking, avant garde and interesting guy. We got to talking about a life in the relatively risky creative arts and he said, "Look, you could get that safe job and spend your whole life that way, but what are you waiting for? When you're ninety-six years old and have three days left? Is that when you decide to do what you love? #Quote by Jamie Freveletti
Passion quotes by Brenda Ueland
#26. There is that American pastime known as "kidding" - with the result that everyone is ashamed and hangdog about showing the slightest enthusiasm or passion or sincere feeling about anything. #Quote by Brenda Ueland
Passion quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#27. A hobby is, of course, an abomination, as are all consuming interests and passions that do not lead directly to large, personal gain. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Passion quotes by Nikki Sixx
#28. SIXX: A.M. is a passion project. I think when you do things like that and put your heart into them and do your best and don't necessarily put them on a marketing grid, that's when things turn out the best. #Quote by Nikki Sixx
Passion quotes by Harriet Lerner
#29. If only our passion to understand others were as great as our passion to be understood. Were this so, all our apologies would be truly meaningful and healing. #Quote by Harriet Lerner
Passion quotes by Hedi Slimane
#30. My parents offered me my first camera for my birthday and I developed an exclusive passion for it over the years. Since I was not the most social kid on the block, the camera helped me to express myself, invent my own language - something like a secret garden. I decided early on I would not write in a diary but take silent photographs instead. #Quote by Hedi Slimane
Passion quotes by John Ortberg
#31. Don't wait for passion to lead you somewhere you're not. Start by bringing passion to the place where you are. #Quote by John Ortberg
Passion quotes by Avijeet Das
#32. There is nothing else to life. To have a passion and die for it! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Passion quotes by Donny Deutsch
#33. When you see someone who has turned his passion into a profit, ask yourself, 'Why not me? #Quote by Donny Deutsch
Passion quotes by Moliere
#34. Doubts are more cruel than the worst of truths. It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do. A lover whose passion is extreme loves even the faults of the beloved #Quote by Moliere
Passion quotes by Alexis Carrel
#35. Men grow when inspired by a high purpose, when contemplating vast horizons. The sacrifice of oneself is not very difficult for one burning with the passion for a great adventure. #Quote by Alexis Carrel
Passion quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#36. Are you all right, dear?" Annabelle asked gently.
"I don't know," Lillian admitted. "I don't feel at all like myself. I'm excited and glad, but also somewhat…"
"Afraid?" Annabelle murmured.
The Lillian of a month ago would have died by slow torture rather than admit to one moment of fear… but she found herself nodding. "I don't like being vulnerable to a man who is not generally known for his sensitivity or soft heartedness. It's fairly obvious that we're not well-suited in temperament."
"But you are attracted to him physically?" Annabelle asked.
"Unfortunately, yes."
"Why is that a misfortune?"
"Because it would be so much easier to marry a man with whom one shared a detached friendship, rather than… than…"
All three young women leaned toward her intently. "R-rather than what?" Evie asked, wide-eyed.
"Rather than flaming, clawing, lurid, positively indecent passion."
"Oh my," Evie said faintly, drawing back in her chair, while Annabelle grinned and Daisy stared at her with enraptured curiosity. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Passion quotes by George Takei
#37. I have two passions in my life. One is to raise the awareness of the internment of Japanese-American citizens. My other passion is the theater. And I've been able to wed the two passions. #Quote by George Takei
Passion quotes by Mary Wortley Montagu
#38. The use of knowledge in our sex (beside the amusement of solitude) is to moderate the passions and learn to be contented with a small expense, which are the certain effects of a studious life and, it may be, preferable even to that fame which men have engrossed to themselves and will not suffer us to share. #Quote by Mary Wortley Montagu
Passion quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#39. Like all other music, it breathed passion and pathos, and emotions high or tender, in a tongue native to the human heart, wherever educated. #Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Passion quotes by Jules Michelet
#40. Love is strong in its passion; affection is powerful in its gentleness. #Quote by Jules Michelet
Passion quotes by Panashe Chigumadzi
#41. The time for careers and passions was gone. Hunger pangs displaced ambition. #Quote by Panashe Chigumadzi
Passion quotes by Joe Mansueto
#42. In school, you get a limited view of the world. Start working. Find your passion. Take your time doing that. Once you've found what you're passionate about, then lock down. Even if you want to start a business, it's helpful to work, see how other businesses are run. #Quote by Joe Mansueto
Passion quotes by Aeriel Miranda
#43. When the passion isn't there, the drive isn't there and it just doesn't last for me. #Quote by Aeriel Miranda
Passion quotes by Paul Oakenfold
#44. I am here for 5 days to enjoy myself and rest. Israel is a beautiful country and the audience is full of passion and I enjoy everything there is here. #Quote by Paul Oakenfold
Passion quotes by Aldous Huxley
#45. I want to know what passion is. I want to feel something strongly. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Passion quotes by Arthur Miller
#46. By whatever means it is accomplished, the prime business of a play is to arouse the passions of its audience so that by the route of passion may be opened up new relationships between a man and men, and between men and Man. Drama is akin to the other inventions of man in that it ought to help us to know more, and not merely to spend our feelings. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Passion quotes by Lynn Steward
#47. As she looked in the full-length mirror in her dressing room, she added a few ropes of pearls, pinned a white silk camellia, and draped the Chantilly lace shawl. In that moment, Dana thought of fashion's most enduring icon who created this elegant and alluring style, and the happy personal life that eluded her. Mademoiselle Chanel died in 1971 at the age of eighty-eight while working on her spring collection, but her passion for work did not fill the void of marriage and children. Her success was costly, but clearly the choice of an uncompromising woman determined to achieve greatness on her own. She once said, I never wanted to weigh more heavily on a man than a bird. #Quote by Lynn Steward
Passion quotes by Terry Goodkind
#48. Her heart nearly burst as she at last plunged into his embrace in one wild rush, screaming out her need, her love, her completion, wanting only to know his name so she might give everything of herself to him. His glowing smile was for her and her alone. His lips were for her and her alone. She closed that last bit of space toward him, longing to at last kiss the love of her life, the mate to her soul, the one and only true passion in all of life.
His lips were there, at last, she fell into his outstretched arms, into his embrace, into his perfect kiss.
In that flawless instant when her lips were just touching his, she saw through him, just beyond him, the merciless unyeilding valley floor hurtling up toward her, and she knew at last his name.
Death. #Quote by Terry Goodkind
Passion quotes by Michel Foucault
#49. The question I would like to pose is not, Why are we repressed? but rather, Why do we say, with so much passion and so much resentment ... that we are repressed? By what spiral did we come to affirm that sex is negated? What led us to show, ostentatiously, that sex is something we hide, to say it is something we silence?
... I do not maintain that prohibition of sex is a ruse; but it is a ruse to make prohibition into the basic and constitutive element from which one would be able to write the history of what has been said concerning sex starting from the modern epoch. #Quote by Michel Foucault
Passion quotes by Andrew McAleer
#50. Your passion for words & sentence structure should equal a painter's passion for color & brushstroke. #Quote by Andrew McAleer
Passion quotes by Fiona Thrust
#51. I was hot and horny as hell.
Which was typical of me. I'm twenty-five, and I'm healthy, and a healthy girl is always thinking about sex. #Quote by Fiona Thrust
Passion quotes by Steven Pressfield
#52. The opposite of fear is love - love of the challenge, love of the work, the pure joyous passion to take a shot at our dream and see if we can pull it off. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Passion quotes by David McCullough
#53. I believe there is no one principle which predominates in human nature so much in every stage of life, from the cradle to the grave, in males and females, old and young, black and white, rich and poor, high and low, as this passion for superiority. #Quote by David McCullough
Passion quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#54. Uplifting God's Kingdom on earth should be our life's mandate as believers #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Passion quotes by David DuChemin
#55. It's the difference between your wife's passport photograph and the portraits you took when you got
engaged. Both may have been created with similar technology, but what stands in that great gulf between them are the passion you have for your wife, the knowledge you have of her personality, and your willingness to use your craft, time, and energy to express that. One says, "She looks like this." The other says, "This is who she is to me. It's how I feel about her. See how amazing she is? #Quote by David DuChemin
Passion quotes by Francoise Sagan
#56. All my life, I will continue obstinately to write about love, solitude and passion among the kind of people I know. The rest don't interest me. #Quote by Francoise Sagan
Passion quotes by Toba Beta
#57. If everything is definite,
then men need no passion. #Quote by Toba Beta
Passion quotes by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
#58. Through certain humors or passions, and from temper merely, a man may be completely miserable, let his outward circumstances be ever so fortunate. #Quote by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
Passion quotes by Somer Brodribb
#59. The assertion that only sex is power and the arrogation of creativity to the masculine sex and the rendering of all creativity as sexual - this is patriarchal aesthetics. Patriarchal passion sees violent sex as the essential creative act, even aesthetically, through a sort of metaphysical transubstantiation. This is their romantic belief that sex with the Master can produce the artistic spirit in the student. Male creativity is thus born in another, her work is given depth through the violent transgression of her boundaries. #Quote by Somer Brodribb
Passion quotes by Adam Goucher
#60. I am not somebody who just likes to run. I am a runner. This is the difference between a pastime and a passion. I like to play golf, but I am not a golfer. I like to cook, but I am not a chef. I don't just like to run. I am a runner. It is a passion. It is part of who I am and is woven into the fabric of my personality, character, and psyche. #Quote by Adam Goucher
Passion quotes by Jarod Kintz
#61. I inherited my sense of passion and romance from the Romans. Specifically Nero and all the fire he possessed. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Passion quotes by Patrick Dixon
#62. Connect with all the passions people have -for themselves, their families, their communities and wider world - and they will follow you to the ends of the earth, buy your products and services with pride, and may even be willing to work for you for next to nothing. #Quote by Patrick Dixon
Passion quotes by Colin Powell
#63. If a leader doesn't convey passion and intensity then there will be no passion and intensity within the organization and they'll start to fall down and get depressed. #Quote by Colin Powell
Passion quotes by Kimberly Schlapman
#64. I have so many just precious, fond memories that revolve around food, and that's why I have such a passion for it. #Quote by Kimberly Schlapman
Passion quotes by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
#65. Some people can see art in everything. #Quote by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
Passion quotes by Tom Robbins
#66. Now tequila may be the favored beverage of outlaws but that doesn't mean it gives them preferential treatment. In fact, tequila probably has betrayed as many outlaws as has the central nervous system and dissatisfied wives. Tequila, scorpion honey, harsh dew of the doglands, essence of Aztec, crema de cacti; tequila, oily and thermal like the sun in solution; tequila, liquid geometry of passion; Tequila, the buzzard god who copulates in midair with the ascending souls of dying virgins; tequila, firebug in the house of good taste; O tequila, savage water of sorcery, what confusion and mischief your sly, rebellious drops do generate! #Quote by Tom Robbins
Passion quotes by Howard Schultz
#67. There is a word that comes to my mind when I think about our company and our people. That word is 'love.' I love Starbucks because everything we've tried to do is steeped in humanity.
Respect and dignity.
Passion and laughter.
Compassion, community, and responsibility.
Authenticity.
These are Starbucks' touchstones, the source of our pride.
Valuing personal connections at a time when so many people sit alone in front of screens; aspiring to build human relationships in an age when so many issues polarize so many; and acting ethically, even if it costs more, when corners are routinely cut
these are honorable pursuits, at the core of what we set out to be. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Passion quotes by Lady Dilke
#68. and the castle in which she dwelt was a prison to her; and sometimes sudden fits of gusty passion would overtake her, for weariness grew to hate, and hate to wrath,

"The Serpent's Head #Quote by Lady Dilke
Passion quotes by Parminder Nagra
#69. Football is a passion that she holds dear to her heart. She's really going for her dream and there are obstacles in the way, but deep down she knows what she wants, and she pursues that. #Quote by Parminder Nagra
Passion quotes by Michael D. Coogan
#70. A tranquil mind gives life to the flesh,
but passion makes the bones rot. #Quote by Michael D. Coogan
Passion quotes by Owl City
#71. My rock candy passion is bittersweet
And armed to the teeth
Cuz she would rather fall in chocolate
Than fall in love.. Especially with me! #Quote by Owl City
Passion quotes by Mary Adair
#72. It takes Passion to bring a Vision to Life. #Quote by Mary Adair
Passion quotes by H.A. Kotys
#73. To hell with passive, inflict your passion on me. #Quote by H.A. Kotys
Passion quotes by Pauly Shore
#74. Find something that you want to do when you're 60. Find your passion. Your passion, your work, whatever it is that you want to do. Find something that you would do, even if you didn't get paid. Whether it's an art or whether is something that you're passionate about. #Quote by Pauly Shore
Passion quotes by Beth Kephart
#75. You obsess (but of course you obsess) until the joy is gone from that thing you'd loved, until your fury overwhelms your passion, until you no longer know how to sit with your back against a tree and write poetry that no one will ever see. #Quote by Beth Kephart
Passion quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#76. The grand style follows suit with all great passion. It disdains to please, it forgets to persuade. It commands. It wills. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Passion quotes by Josh Billings
#77. There is no passion of the human heart that promises so much and pays so little as revenge. #Quote by Josh Billings
Passion quotes by Anthony J. D'Angelo
#78. Never let your persistence and passion turn into stubbornness and ignorance. #Quote by Anthony J. D'Angelo
Passion quotes by Robin Sharma
#79. A timeless lesson for a deeply fulfilling life is to discover your calling, that special work or consuming occupation that fully engages your special talents with your passions. #Quote by Robin Sharma
Passion quotes by Joseph J. Ellis
#80. Some models of self-control are able to achieve their serenity easily because the soul fires never burn brightly to begin with. #Quote by Joseph J. Ellis
Passion quotes by E.T.A. Hoffmann
#81. As the priest is characterized by his cassock, so the smoker by his pipe. The way in which he holds it, raises it to his lips, and knocks out the ashes, reveals his personality, habits, passions, and even his thoughts. #Quote by E.T.A. Hoffmann
Passion quotes by Virginia Woolf
#82. But Orlando was a woman - Lord Palmerston had just proved it. And when we are writing the life of a woman, we may, it is agreed, waive our demand for action, and substitute love instead. Love, the poet has said, is woman's whole existence. And if we look for a moment at Orlando writing at her table, we must admit that never was there a woman more fitted for that calling. Surely, since she is a woman, and a beautiful woman, and a woman in the prime of life, she will soon give over this pretence of writing and thinking and begin at least to think of a gamekeeper (and as long as she thinks of a man, nobody objects to a woman thinking). And then she will write him a little note (and as long as she writes little notes nobody objects to a woman writing either) and make an assignation for Sunday dusk and Sunday dusk will come; and the gamekeeper will whistle under the window - all of which is, of course, the very stuff of life and the only possible subject for fiction. Surely Orlando must have done one of these things? Alas, - a thousand times, alas, Orlando did none of them. Must it then be admitted that Orlando was one of those monsters of iniquity who do not love? She was kind to dogs, faithful to friends, generosity itself to a dozen starving poets, had a passion for poetry. But love - as the male novelists define it - and who, after all, speak with greater authority? - has nothing whatever to do with kindness, fidelity, generosity, or poetry. Love is slipping off one' #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Passion quotes by John Legend
#83. Music business is not for everyone. But if you have it in you, you have that passion, if you have that energy in you that you really want to make something creative and make something that's going to impact the world, then go for it, do it and don't let anybody tell you no. #Quote by John Legend
Passion quotes by Ellen Kriedman
#84. I know I seem unlovable and impossible at times, but if you'll take the time to understand what my needs are, I'll do the same for you. Then we can have a relationship filled with passion, excitement, and sexual fulfillment. - Light Her Fire #Quote by Ellen Kriedman
Passion quotes by William Shakespeare
#85. What to ourselves in passion we propose, The passion ending, doth the purpose lose. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Passion quotes by Abhishek Bachchan
#86. Every film for every actor is a make-or-break film. I believe every film has the power to break you or make you. So, an actor will treat every film like his last film. That's the way we need to work, and that's the way you can drum up that passion needed to do good work. #Quote by Abhishek Bachchan
Passion quotes by John Dryden
#87. Moderate sorrow Fits vulgar love, and for a vulgar man: But I have lov'd with such transcendent passion, I soar'd, at first, quite out of reason's view, And now am lost above it. #Quote by John Dryden
Passion quotes by Jane Kirkpatrick
#88. Have you ever been through a painful season in life and wished for something new, something fresh, or even something healing to come along? Take this journey with Robin Price, a widow and single mother with a big heart and passion for those closest to her as she wades through trying to live, let go, and love again. Wishing on Willows is a story of hope that will find you stepping up to the willow tree and daring to make wishes #Quote by Jane Kirkpatrick
Passion quotes by Isaac Newton
#89. All the characters of the Passion agree to the year 34; and that is the only year to which they all agree. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Passion quotes by Stanley Kunitz
#90. Toward dawn we shared with you
your hour of desolation,
the huge lingering passion
of your unearthly out cry,
as you swung your blind head
towards us and laboriously opened
a bloodshot, glistening eye,
in which we swam with terror and recognition. #Quote by Stanley Kunitz
Passion quotes by Rebecca Traister
#91. In work, it is possible to find commitment, attachment, chemistry, and connection. In fact, it's high time that more people acknowledged the electric pull that women can feel for their profession, the exciting heat of ambition and frisson of success. #Quote by Rebecca Traister
Passion quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#92. Hey, I am sorry that I am not like other people... I don't say things like, "let's let go of each other now and if we are meant to be, we will be in the end" and things like "if god leads us to it, he will lead us through it." If that's the kind of person you're looking for... well that's not me. I don't love that way. If I loved someone living in the pits of hell, I would go into those pits of hell and I would embrace that person right there in hell. That is how I love. And I would try to bring him out of hell, but first I would burn with him in it. So that is why saying something nice to me like, "let's love one day when it's proper to love" just isn't going to cut it. It doesn't reach me in my soul, because the way my soul loves is different. I don't love like people love. If one day you are burning in hell, I wouldn't say, "look at that bad man in hell!" but I would say "how do I get in there?" So you see... I am very different. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Passion quotes by Tony Robbins
#93. Meanings don't just affect the way we feel; they affect all of our relationships and interactions. Some people think the first ten years of a relationship is just the beginning; that they're just now getting to know each other, and it's really exciting. It's an opportunity to go deeper. Other people could be ten days into a relationship, and the first time they have an argument, they think it's the end.
Now tell me, if you think this is the beginning of a relationship, are you going to behave the same way as if it were the end? That one slight shift in perception, in meaning, can change your whole life in a moment. In the beginning of a relationship, if you're totally in love and attracted, what will you do for the other person? The answer is: anything! If he or she asks you to take out the trash, you might leap to your feet and say, "Anything that lights you up, sweetheart!" But after seven days, seven years, or seventy years, people say things like, "What the hell do you think I am, your janitor?!" And they wonder what happened to the passion in their life. I've often shared with couples having trouble in their relationships that if you do what you did in the beginning of the relationship, there wont be an end! Because in the beginning of the relationship, you were a giver, not an accountant. You weren't weighing constantly the meaning of who was giving more. Your entire focus was just lighting up that person, and his or her happiness made you feel like your life was #Quote by Tony Robbins
Passion quotes by Timothy Pina
#94. It takes more than dreams to get one to greatness. One's passion, dedication & work ethics will always help soar them to greater heights! #Quote by Timothy Pina
Passion quotes by Crystal Renn
#95. My body has changed and it will continue change in the future - that is natural for anyone. What matters to me most is that even though external change is inevitable, my passion for encouraging women to love themselves at any size and to live, thrive, and to go after their dreams is a part of my permanent nature. Even though my body and mind may evolve through life and experience, my values on this matter have not. #Quote by Crystal Renn
Passion quotes by Daniel Wallace
#96. There is no passion. There is solely obsession.
There is no knowledge. There is solely conviction.
There is no purpose. There is solely will.
There is nothing ...
Only me. #Quote by Daniel Wallace
Passion quotes by Soma Mukherjee
#97. In The Sunset Sky
The sunset sky dazzling with the golden hues,
Taking bow in brilliant sparkle of experience
Is it not a climax, of the story so far, that was today?
Or is it building anticipation of the night yet to come.
Watch the days go,
some proud of their accomplishments
Some leaving sighs of disappointments, Leaving all in awe of its Amaranthine twists and turns
And the fortunate get to see the moon trying to steal the show from setting sun,
Oh she is such a show off, isn't she, basking in reflected glory
Its magical, the sunset sky,Puzzling, sometimes just like a riddle,
Leaving the nature stunned and amazed For it has been filling the canvas whole day with colours
And now the sunset threatens to hide them all
And in dark all the colours will be same
A cue for the wise.
Sunset sky has so much to offer,
is she not a fine exampleof how uncertain a life can be
Often reminding no matter what you planned, there will besome unexpected returns
For End has its own brain, its own script
Charting its own course
So why just the beginning,every moment of the life should be grand,
meted with equal passion and fervor
She has been so clever; the sunset sky
Leaving Twinkling cryptic messages for the night sky
For even the dark has sparkle and hope if you keep your head up,
A constant reminder that exuberance is an attitude of deep,rich, warm hearts
#Quote by Soma Mukherjee
Passion quotes by Frances Osborne
#98. I bear to the wisdom of Sir Philip Sidney, who said that next to hunting he liked hawking worst. However, though he may have fallen into as hyperbolical an extreme, yet who can put too great a scorn upon their folly, that, to bring home a rascal deer, or a few rotten conies, submit their lives to the will or passion of such as may take them under a penalty no less slight than there is discretion shown in exposing them. #Quote by Frances Osborne
Passion quotes by Alexander McQueen
#99. The explosion of museum exhibitions is only a mirror image of what has happened to fashion itself this millennium. With the force of technology, instant images and global participation, fashion has developed from being a passion for a few to a fascination - and an entertainment - for everybody. #Quote by Alexander McQueen
Passion quotes by James F. Cooper
#100. The demagogue is usually sly, a detractor of others, a professor of humility and disinterestedness, a great stickler for equality as respects all above him, a man who acts in corners, and avoids open and manly expositions of his course, calls blackguards gentlemen, and gentlemen folks, appeals to passions and prejudices rather than to reason, and is in all respects, a man of intrigue and deception, of sly cunning and management. #Quote by James F. Cooper
Passion quotes by Kiki Dimoula
#101. Love grows by not giving to us. And if our passion for poetry lives on and persists, it is because poetry offers us only its bits of lint. #Quote by Kiki Dimoula
Passion quotes by Apolo Ohno
#102. Passion is the spark for everything. By itself, passion is never enough. Just like talent is never enough. But it's your fire starter.
Without passion, you won't do something 100 percent. That's the bottom line.
And what's the point of doing something if you're not doing it 100 percent? #Quote by Apolo Ohno
Passion quotes by Sequence Kye Kenneth Young
#103. His walk and stare. Was as poisonous as the air after a nuclear bomb. #Quote by Sequence Kye Kenneth Young
Passion quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#104. Who can deny that much that passes for science and art today destroys the soul instead of uplifting it and instead of evoking the best in us, panders to our basest passions? #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Passion quotes by Emmuska Orczy
#105. Had she put turned back then, she would have seen that which would have made her own sufferings seem but light and easy to bear-a strong man, overwhelmed with his own passion and his own despair. Pride had given way at last, obstinacy was gone: the will was powerless. He was but a man madly, blindly, passionately in love, and as soon as her light footstep had died away within the house, he knelt down upon the terrace steps, and in the very madness of his love he kissed one by one the places where her small foot had trodden, and the stone balustrade there, were her tiny hand had rested last. #Quote by Emmuska Orczy
Passion quotes by Steve Garfield
#106. The right people to start video blogging are those with a passion to tell a story. #Quote by Steve Garfield
Passion quotes by Pooja Ruprell
#107. Awakening others is an impossible endeavor until I myself am awakened. #Quote by Pooja Ruprell
Passion quotes by Tobias Thomas
#108. You have to feel the mix and you have to feel the work and the sweet somehow which somebody is investing in that moment in the way that you can really feel the passion. #Quote by Tobias Thomas
Passion quotes by Valentino Rossi
#109. Maybe the bike is more dangerous, but the passion for the car for me is second to the bike. #Quote by Valentino Rossi
Passion quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#110. I know that a pretty doll, a fair fool, might do well enough for the honeymoon; but when passion cooled, how dreadful to find a lump of wax and wood laid in my bosom, a half-idiot clasped in my arms, and to remember that I had made of this my equal- nay, my idol- to know that I must pass the rest of my dreary life with a creature incapable of understanding what I said, of appreciating what I thought, or of sympathising with what I felt! #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Passion quotes by Joe Principe
#111. That is definitely the heart and soul of Rise Against - that passion to inspire change for the better. #Quote by Joe Principe
Passion quotes by Omar Khayyam
#112. It's too bad if a heart lacks fire,
and is deprived of the light
of a heart ablaze.
The day on which you are
without passionate love
is the most wasted day of your life. #Quote by Omar Khayyam
Passion quotes by Harold Bloom
#113. Criticism starts - it has to start - with a real passion for reading. It can come in adolescence, even in your twenties, but you must fall in love with poems. #Quote by Harold Bloom
Passion quotes by Mother Teresa
#114. I think it is very beautiful for the poor to accept their lot, to share it with the passion of Christ. I think the world is being much helped by the suffering of the poor people. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Passion quotes by Elvis Costello
#115. These are the sort of things that push you on in music - the curiosity, a passion for new ideas. #Quote by Elvis Costello
Passion quotes by Jeffrey Zeldman
#116. Somebody has to pay our editors, writers, journalists, designers, developers, and all the other specialists whose passion and tears go into every chunk of worthwhile web content. #Quote by Jeffrey Zeldman
Passion quotes by Matt Cohen
#117. I'd always told people that I would have liked to pursue some sort of professional fight career. I don't know if I'm quite right for it, since I'm extremely prone to injury. I've been boxing for a couple years, and I've messed around with some Jiu-Jitsu, and I've always felt that there's such a passion in a real fighter's heart. #Quote by Matt Cohen
Passion quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#118. Related to this first reason is the fear that a passion for holiness makes you some kind of weird holdover from a bygone era. As soon as you share your concern about swearing or about avoiding certain movies or about modesty or sexual purity or self-control or just plain godliness, people look at you like you have a moralistic dab of cream cheese on your face from the 1950s. Believers get nervous that their friends will call them legalistic, prudish, narrow-minded, old fashioned, holier-than-thou - or worst of all, a fundamentalist. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Passion quotes by Kapil Dev
#119. Sports should not become routine. It should be about passion. #Quote by Kapil Dev
Passion quotes by Ray Bradbury
#120. Montag said nothing but stood looking at the women's faces as he had once looked at the faces of saints in a strange church he had entered when he was a child. The faces of those enameled creatures meant nothing to him, though he talked to them and stood in that church for a long time, trying to know what that religion was, trying to get enough of the raw incense and special dust of the place into his lungs and thus into his blood to feel touched and concerned by the meaning of the colorful men and women with the porcelain eyes and the blood-ruby lips. But there was nothing, nothing; it was a stroll through another store, and his currency strange and unusable there, and his passion cold, even when he touched the wood and plaster and clay. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Passion quotes by Carolyn G. Heilbrun
#121. Marriage, in short, is a bargain, like buying a house or entering a profession. One chooses it knowing that, by that very decision, one is abnegating other possibilities. In choosing companionship over passion, women like Beatrice Webb and Virginia Woolf made a bargain; their marriages worked because they did not regret their bargains, or blame their husbands for not being something else--dashing lovers, for example. But in writing biographies, or one's own life, it is both customary and misleading to present such marriages, to oneself or to one's reader, as sad compromises, the best of a bad bargain, or scarcely to speak of them at all. Virginia Woolf mentioned that she, who is reticent about nothing, had never spoken of her life with Leonard. but we know that she said of him that when he entered a room, she had no idea what he was going to say, a remarkable definition of a good marriage. Such marriages are not bad bargains, but the best of a good bargain, and we must learn the language to understand and describe them, particularly in writing the lives of accomplished women. #Quote by Carolyn G. Heilbrun
Passion quotes by Rumi
#122. There is a community of the spirit. Join it, and feel the delight of walking in the noisy street and being the noise. Drink all your passion, and be a disgrace. Close both eyes to see with the other eye. #Quote by Rumi
Passion quotes by Johann Kaspar Lavater
#123. The most stormy ebullitions of passion, from blasphemy to murder, are less terrific than one single act of cool villainy. #Quote by Johann Kaspar Lavater

Passion quotes by L.J.Smith
#126. Kaitlyn is that kind of girl that might be too interesting, might tempt you to get involved ... A girl who challenged him, who could be my equal ... Her mind was a place of blue pools and blazing meteors ... She stood slim and proud as some medival witch princess against dawn.
-Gabriel #Quote by L.J.Smith
Passion quotes by Viswanathan Anand
#127. For me, chess is not a profession, it is a way of life, a passion. People may feel that I have conquered the peak and will not have to struggle. Financially, perhaps that is true; but as far as chess goes, I'm still learning a lot! #Quote by Viswanathan Anand
Passion quotes by Avina Celeste
#128. We discover the riches of life when we live through the eyes of our heart. #Quote by Avina Celeste
Passion quotes by Thomas Mann
#129. Because passion, like crime, does not like everyday order and well-being and every slight undoing of the bourgeois system, every confusion and infestation of the world is welcome to it, because it can unconditionally expect to find its advantage in it. #Quote by Thomas Mann
Passion quotes by Arthur Crow
#130. O'er the ache of mauve shores erotic winds billow long & deep … Her scent drips from the sky onto bare skin, bejeweling my senses - like a tapestry of blushing petals besieged in rhythms of passion. Whispers of untamed rapture beckons my lips as I descend into her gaze, unto the sea of bliss where I shall forever drown. #Quote by Arthur Crow
Passion quotes by Gary Vaynerchuk
#131. Skills are cheap. Passion is priceless. #Quote by Gary Vaynerchuk
Passion quotes by Oscar Wilde
#132. Medievalism, with its saints and martyrs, its love of self-torture, its wild passion for wounding itself, its gashing with knives, and its whipping with rods - Medievalism is real Christianity, and the medieval Christ is the real Christ. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Passion quotes by Estelle Morris
#133. If you invent the Mini Cooper, pour all your energy and passion into it and it gets made, you should be on a roll. In the film industry you have to start again the next day. #Quote by Estelle Morris
Passion quotes by Tammy Faith
#134. I squeeze his hand to let him know that I get it, that I share his pain. That's the moment when I think I finally understand what my science teachers tried to explain when they talked about thermal energy. My atoms are in motion making a path from my fingertips where I connect with him, spreading to my whole body and getting me hotter by the second. All my molecules seem to be moving and vibrating on their own accord, faster and faster and making my hand feels tingly. Whenever I'm around him I always have this warmth that surrounds me. When I get all flustered because he is making me all hot and bothered without even meaning to, the heat starts to resemble a fever. Now, it's like a volcano erupted all over me. It's passion and love and suffering all smashed together and linked between our hands. A little ball of emotions that keeps expanding. #Quote by Tammy Faith
Passion quotes by Todd Stocker
#135. Do what you love but do what it takes to do what you love. #Quote by Todd Stocker
Passion quotes by Tatamkhulu Afrika
#136. Love is an emotion too often threatened by ennui to attain to the grand passion for which I have long since ceased to hope. #Quote by Tatamkhulu Afrika
Passion quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#138. The White Mansion isn't boring, lass. Never boring. It's the grand demesne the Unseelie King built for his concubine. It's a living, breathing love story, testament to the brightest passion that ever burned between our races. You can follow the scenes through if you've time enough and are willing to risk getting lost for a few centuries. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Passion quotes by Grace Willows

Passion quotes by Laura Whitcomb
#142. I would court you with a passion, if things were different. #Quote by Laura Whitcomb
Passion quotes by Deb Margolis
#143. Great art comes from passion, from a need to expose human spirit in the face of mortality, the small cruelties and heroisms that make up daily life
that's where great work comes from, and if you enable students in this way to discover those impulses and observations in themselves, those heroisms and cruelties in themselves, you create an atmosphere in which art can emerge. #Quote by Deb Margolis
Passion quotes by Eudora Welty
#144. My continuing passion is to part a curtain, that invisible veil of indifference that falls between us and that blinds us to each other's presence, each other's wonder, each other's human plight. #Quote by Eudora Welty
Passion quotes by Ignatius Of Loyola
#145. One must wage war against his predominant passion and not retreat until, with God's help, he has been victorious. #Quote by Ignatius Of Loyola
Passion quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#146. Nonviolence of the strong cannot be a mere policy. It must be a creed, or a passion, if 'creed' is objected to. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Passion quotes by Bell Hooks
#147. We fail at romantic love when we have not learned the art of loving. It's as simple as that. Often we confuse perfect passion with perfect love. #Quote by Bell Hooks

#148. I don't know whether it's the athlete in me or the passion I have for the game: I always think that I can step back on the field and play. #Quote by David Beckham

#149. Follow your heart, Ithilnin," Albirich repeated. "Time is precious. Don't waste it living someone else's life. #Quote by Jess C. Scott
Passion quotes by John Adams
#150. The law no passion can disturb. 'Tis void of desire and fear, lust and anger. 'Tis mens sine affectu, written reason, retaining some measure of the divine perfection. It does not enjoin that which pleases a weak, frail man, but, without any regard to persons, commands that which is good and punishes evil in all, whether rich or poor, high or low. #Quote by John Adams
Passion quotes by Edmond Rostand
#151. CYRANO:
Thy name is in my heart as in a sheep-bell,
And as I ever tremble, thinking of thee,
Ever the bell shakes, ever thy name ringeth!
All things of thine I mind, for I love all things;
I know that last year on the twelfth of May-month,
To walk abroad, one day you changed your hair-plaits!
I am so used to take your hair for daylight
That,--like as when the eye stares on the sun's disk,
One sees long after a red blot on all things--
So, when I quit thy beams, my dazzled vision
Sees upon all things a blonde stain imprinted.

ROXANE (agitated):
Why, this is love indeed!. . .

CYRANO:
Ay, true, the feeling
Which fills me, terrible and jealous, truly
Love,--which is ever sad amid its transports!
Love,--and yet, strangely, not a selfish passion!
I for your joy would gladly lay mine own down,
--E'en though you never were to know it,--never!
--If but at times I might--far off and lonely,--
Hear some gay echo of the joy I bought you!
Each glance of thine awakes in me a virtue,--
A novel, unknown valor. Dost begin, sweet,
To understand? So late, dost understand me?
Feel'st thou my soul, here, through the darkness mounting?
Too fair the night! Too fair, too fair the moment!
That I should speak thus, and that you should hearken!
Too fair! In moments when my hopes rose proudest,
I never hoped such guerdon. Naught is left me
#Quote by Edmond Rostand
Passion quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#152. Converting your own passions into a job is the fastest method for eliminating any passion you once had. #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
Passion quotes by Miroslav Krleza
#153. Whatever the answer, one senses one thing clearly: the man from whose mind this chaotic vision emanated did not purchase his "outlook on life" in a dime store, but came into this chapel like a meteor and left behind him the smell of cosmic sulphur...And century after century men come here bleating like goats, staring wide eyed at these testimonies of human passion and intelligence... #Quote by Miroslav Krleza
Passion quotes by Olga Goa
#154. Scusi mia bella*, but it runs in the blood of all Italians to be skillful lovers. So you have to get used to this. #Quote by Olga Goa
Passion quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#155. So far are we generally from thinking what we often say of the shortness of life, that at the time when it is necessarily shortest we form projects which we delay to execute, indulge such expectations as nothing but along train of events can gratify, and suffer those passions to gain upon us which are only excusable in the prime of life. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Passion quotes by Butch Bellah
#156. Winners run through the finish line. End your day with passion and enthusiasm. #Quote by Butch Bellah
Passion quotes by Jasper Fforde

Passion quotes by Geraldine Brooks
#159. I reached for her, pushing back the fall of hair-it was heavy and thick and smooth to the touch-and tilted her chin so that the moonlight shone on her wet face.
We married each other that night, there on a bed of fallen pine needles-even today, the scent of pitch-pine stirs me-with Henry's distant flute for a wedding march and the arching white birch boughs for our basilica. At first, she quivered like an aspen, and I was ashamed at my lack of continence, yet I could not let go of her. I felt like Peleus on the beach, clinging to Thetis, only to find that, suddenly, it was she who held me; that same furnace in her nature that had flared up in anger blazed again, in passion. #Quote by Geraldine Brooks
Passion quotes by Northrop Frye
#160. The upper class made their names for the lower classes--villain, knave, varlet, boor--into terms of contempt because the people they described had to wriggle through life as best they could: their first and almost their only rule was survival. The deadliest insult one gentleman could give another then was to call him a liar, not because the one being insulted had a passion for truth, but because it was being suggested that he couldn't afford to tell the truth. #Quote by Northrop Frye
Passion quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#161. I love you," she said wretchedly. "And if I were well, no power on earth could keep me away from you. If I were well, I would take you to my bed, and I would show you as much passion as any woman could. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Passion quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#162. For a long time I believed the opposite of passion was death. I was wrong. Passion and death are implicit, one in the other. Past the border of a fiery life lies the netherworld. I can trace this road, which took me through places so hot the very air burned the lungs. I did not turn back. I pressed on, and eventually passed over the border, beyond which lies a place that is wordless and cold, so cold that it, like mercury, burns a freezing blue flame. #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Passion quotes by William McBrien

Passion quotes by Meg Wolitzer
#164. We are all here, on this earth for only one go around. And everyone thinks their purpose is to just find their passion. But perhaps our purpose is to find what other people need. #Quote by Meg Wolitzer
Passion quotes by Charles Bukowski
#165. Yes Yes
when God created love he didn't help most
when God created dogs He didn't help dogs
when God created plants that was average
when God created hate we had a standard utility
when God created me He created me
when God created the monkey He was asleep
when He created the giraffe He was drunk
when He created narcotics He was high
and when He created suicide He was low
when He created you lying in bed
He knew what He was doing
He was drunk and He was high
and He created the mountains and the sea and fire at the same time
He made some mistakes
but when He created you lying in bed
He came all over His Blessed Universe. #Quote by Charles Bukowski

Passion quotes by Jessica English
#170. Let your walls down, be vulnerable, life is too short to be half in. Being psycho is so tacky, not something to flaunt. If you want to flaunt anything, let it be your love and passion for someone. Spend your energy being happy and in love. If your partner is the "psycho" one, cut them off. Find the one that is just as positive as you, give each other good vibes only and you'll be living in a modern day fairy tale. #Quote by Jessica English
Passion quotes by G. Richard Wagoner, Jr.
#171. Go at life every day with passion and enthusiasm ... and when challenges arrive, simply do not give up. #Quote by G. Richard Wagoner, Jr.
Passion quotes by Nikolai Gogol
#172. What grief is not taken away by time? What passion will survive an unequal battle with it? I knew a man in the bloom of his still youthful powers, filled with true nobility and virtue, I knew him when he was in love, tenderly, passionately, furiously, boldly, modestly, and before me, almost before my eyes, the object of his passion - tender, beautiful as an angel - was struck down by insatiable death. I never saw such terrible fits of inner suffering, such furious scorching anguish, such devouring despair as shook the unfortunate lover. I never thought a man could create such a hell for himself, in which there would be no shadow, no image, nothing in the least resembling hope... They tried to keep an eye on him; they hid all instruments he might have used to take his own life. Two weeks later he suddenly mastered himself: he began to laugh, to joke; freedom was granted him, and the first thing he did was buy a pistol. One day his family was terribly frightened by the sudden sound of a shot. They ran into the room and saw him lying with his brains blown out. A doctor who happened to be there, whose skill was on everyone's lips, saw signs of life in him, found that the wound was not quite mortal, and the man, to everyone's amazement, was healed. The watch on him was increased still more. Even at the table they did not give him a knife to and tried to take away from him anything that he might strike himself with; but a short while later he found a new occasion and threw himself #Quote by Nikolai Gogol
Passion quotes by Steve Mosby
#173. Have you ever had somebody grip you with a passion you never thought existed outside the fucking movies? As though they found you the most precious thing in the world? I felt it then, and couldn't believe that somebody would actually want me that much. I don't believe in Heaven as a place, but I sometimes think that if a person could write down how I felt at just that moment - if they could describe it perfectly - then that sentence would be something like Heaven to me. And as a final resting place, I'd be happy to have my name shrunk down and rested, invisibly, on the collar of the full stop at the end. #Quote by Steve Mosby
Passion quotes by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
#174. To be a highflier and a name to conjure with, you must decide your dimension, plan your path, master the moment, focus on the future, determine your degree, push your persistence and lead
your life. #Quote by Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha
Passion quotes by Annie Dillard
#175. Father had stretched out his long legs and was tilting back in his chair. Mother sat with her knees crossed, in blue slacks, smoking a Chesterfield. The dessert dishes were still on the table. My sisters were nowhere in evidence. It was a warm evening; the big dining-room windows gave onto blooming rhododendrons.

Mother regarded me warmly. She gave me to understand that she was glad I had found what I had been looking for, but that she and father were happy to sit with their coffee, and would not be coming down.

She did not say, but I understood at once, that they had their pursuits (coffee?) and I had mine. She did not say, but I began to understand then, that you do what you do out of your private passion for the thing itself.

I had essentially been handed my own life. In subsequent years my parents would praise my drawings and poems, and supply me with books, art supplies, and sports equipment, and listen to my troubles and enthusiasms, and supervise my hours, and discuss and inform, but they would not get involved with my detective work, nor hear about my reading, nor inquire about my homework or term papers or exams, nor visit the salamanders I caught, nor listen to me play the piano, nor attend my field hockey games, nor fuss over my insect collection with me, or my poetry collection or stamp collection or rock collection. My days and nights were my own to plan and fill. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Passion quotes by Herman Melville
#176. Passion, and passion in its profoundest, is not a thing demanding a palatial stage whereon to play its part. Down among the groundlings, among the beggars and rakers of the garbage, profound passion is enacted. And the circumstances that provoke it, however trivial or mean, are no measure of its power. In the present instance the stage is a scrubbed gun deck, and one of the external provocations a man-of-war's-man's spilled soup. #Quote by Herman Melville
Passion quotes by Alvin Lee
#177. I write and record all the time; it's my hobby and my passion. #Quote by Alvin Lee
Passion quotes by Leatrice Eiseman
#178. Ever since I was a child I've had a passion for colors and a sixth sense and known how to use it. I started in fashion, but I got side-tracked by psychology and its color connection. I went back to school and got both my degrees in psychology, but I kept studying design. Color has an application in all of those fields. #Quote by Leatrice Eiseman
Passion quotes by Michelle Hodkin
#179. Do not find peace. Find passion. Find something you want to die for more than something you want to live for. If it is your children, then fight not just for your own but for orphans who have no one else. If it is for medicine, then do not just seek out a cure for cancer but search for a cure for AIDS as well. Fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. Speak for them. Scream for them. Live and die for them. You life will not always be a happy one, but it will have meaning. #Quote by Michelle Hodkin

Passion quotes by David Foster Wallace
#192. It's actually not true that our literary culture is nihilistic, at least not in the radical sense of Turgenev's Bazarov. For there are certain tendencies we believe are bad, qualities we hate and fear. Among these are sentimentality, naivete, archaism, fanaticism. It would probably be better to call our own art's culture now one of congenital skepticism. Our intelligentsia distrust strong belief, open conviction. Material passion is one thing, but idealogical passion disgusts us on some deep level. We believe that ideology is now the province of the rival SIGs and PACs all trying to get their slice of the big green pie...and, looking around us, we see that indeed it is so. But Frank's Dostoevsky would point out (or more like hop up and down and shake his fist and fly at us and shout) that if this is so, it's at least partly because we have abandoned the field. That we've abandoned it to fundamentalists whose pitiless rigidity and eagerness to judge show that they're clueless about the "Christian values" they would impose on others. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Passion quotes by Rita Mae Brown
#193. Art is moral passion married to entertainment. Moral passion without entertainment is propaganda, and entertainment without moral passion is television. #Quote by Rita Mae Brown
Passion quotes by Bella Andre
#194. Where are your emotions? Where is your passion? I swear you care more #Quote by Bella Andre
Passion quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#195. Milady felt a consolation in seeing nature partake of the disorder of her heart. The thunder growled in the air like the passion and anger in her thoughts. It appeared to her that the blast as it swept along disheveled her brow, as it bowed the branches of the trees and bore away their leaves. She howled as the hurricane howled; and her voice was lost in the great voice of nature, which also seemed to groan with despair. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Passion quotes by Thomas E. Woods Jr.
#196. Nisbet could find much to disturb a traditional conservative even in the rhetoric of Ronald Reagan: "President Reagan's deepest soul is not Republican-conservative but New Deal-Second World War Democrat. Thus his well noted preference for citing FDR and Kennedy as noble precedents for his actions rather than Coolidge, Hoover, or even Eisenhower. The word 'revolution' springs lightly from his lips, for anything from tax reform to narcotics prosecution. Reagan's passion for crusades, moral and military, is scarcely American-conservative. #Quote by Thomas E. Woods Jr.
Passion quotes by Eva Le Gallienne
#197. People who are born even-tempered, placid and untroubled - secure from violent passions or temptations to evil - those who have never needed to struggle all night with the Angel to emerge lame but victorious at dawn, never become great saints. #Quote by Eva Le Gallienne

Passion quotes by Roland Barthes
#199. To hide a passion totally (or even to hide, more simply, its excess) is inconceivable: not because the human subject is too weak, but because passion is in essence made to be seen: the hiding must be seen: I want you to know that I am hiding something from you, that is the active paradox I must resolve: at one and the same time it must be known and not known: I want you to know that I don't want to show my feelings: that is the message I address to the other. #Quote by Roland Barthes
Passion quotes by Ann Brashares
#200. Let me love you, but don't love me back. Do love me and let me hate you for a while. Let me feel like I have some control, because I know I never do. #Quote by Ann Brashares
