Passion quotes
Passion
They declaim against the passions without bothering to think that it is from their flame philosophy lights its torch.

- Sade, Marquis De
This is the very worst wickedness, that we refuse to acknowledge the passionate evil that is in us. This makes us secret and rotten.

- Lawrence, D. H.
Modesty in an actor is as fake as passion in a call girl.

- Jackie Gleason
Set me free from evil passions, and heal my heart of all inordinate affections; that being inwardly cured and thoroughly cleansed, I may be made fit to love, courageous to suffer, steady to persevere.

- Kempis, Thomas
Your pasion must come from the things that fuel you from the inside. Honors and awards are nice things, but only to the extent that they regard the real respect from your peers.

- Randy Pausch
Sudden glory is the passion which makes those grimaces called laughter.

- Hobbes, Thomas
The whole commerce between master and slave is a perpetual exercise of the most boisterous passions, the most unremitting despotism on the one part, and degrading submissions on the other. Our children see this, and learn to imitate it.

- Jefferson, Thomas
Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things.

- Diderot, Denis
All, all is theft, all is unceasing and rigorous competition in nature; the desire to make off with the substance of others is the foremost -- the most legitimate -- passion nature has bred into us and, without doubt, the most agreeable one.

- Sade, Marquis De
The artist, depicting man disdainful of the storm and stress of life, is no less reconciling and healing than the poet who, while endowing Nature and Humanity, rejoices in its measureless superiority to human passions and human sorrows.

- Berenson
Out of compassion I destroy the darkness of their ignorance. From within them I light the lamp of wisdom and dispel all darkness from their lives.

- Bhagavad Gita
I think that cars today are almost the exact equivalent of the great Gothic cathedrals: I mean the supreme creation of an era, conceived with passion by unknown artists, and consumed in image if not in usage by a whole population which appropriates them as a purely magical object.

- Barthes, Roland
Speak the speech, I pray you, as I pronounced it to you -- tripping on the tongue; but if you mouth it, as many of your players do, I had as Leif the town-crier spoke my lines. Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand, thus, but use all gently; for in the very torrent, tempest, and as I may say, the whirlwind of your passion, you must acquire and beget a temperance that may give it smoothness.

- Shakespeare, William
He who has no passion has no principal or motive to act.

- Helvetius, Claude A.
The true end of tragedy is to purify the passions.

- Aristotle
Passion is in all great searches and is necessary to all creative endeavors.

- Smith, Eugene W.
Great souls are not those who have fewer passions and more virtues than others, but only those who have greater designs.

- La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
The reason for the slow progress of the world seems to lie in a single fact. Every man is born under the yoke, and grows up beneath the oppressions of his age. He can only get a vision of the unselfish forces in the world by appealing to them, and every appeal is a call to arms. If he fights he must fight, not one man, but a conspiracy. He is always at war with a civilization. On his side is proverbial philosophy, a galaxy of invisible saints and sages, and the half-developed consciousness and professions of everybody. Against him is the world, and every selfish passion in his own heart.

- Chapman, John Jay
Our passion and principles are constantly in a frenzy, but begin to shift and waver, as we return to reason.

- Sterne, Laurence
Kindness and compassion toward all living things is a mark of a civilized society. Conversely, cruelty, whether it is directed against human beings or against animals, is not the exclusive province of any one culture or community of people. Racism, economic deprival, dog fighting and cock fighting, bull fighting and rodeos are cut from the same fabric: violence. Only when we have become nonviolent toward all life will we have learned to live well ourselves.

- Cesar Chavez
