Albert Einstein Quotes about passion
#210 Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein Quotes about passion
#219 Albert Einstein

An autocratic system of coercion, in my opinion, soon degenerates. For force always attracts men of low morality, and I believe it to be an invariable rule that tyrants of genius are succeeded by scoundrels. For this reason I have always been passionately opposed to systems such as we see in Italy and Russia to-day. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about passion

Measured objectively, what a man can wrest from Truth by passionate striving is utterly infinitesimal. But the striving frees us from the bonds of the self and makes us comrades of those who are the best and the greatest. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about passion

Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about passion

Bertrand Russell Quotes about passion
#1151 Bertrand Russell

Bertrand Russell Quotes about passion
#1543 Oscar Wilde

Aristotle Quotes about passion
#4634 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Each to each a looking-glass, Reflects his figure that doth pass. Every wayfarer he meets What himself declared repeats, What himself confessed records, Sentences him in his words; The form is his own corporal form, And his thought the penal worm. Yet shine forever virgin minds, Loved by stars and the purest winds, Which, o'er passion throned sedate, Have not hazarded their state; Disconcert the searching spy, Rendering to a curious eye The durance of a granite ledge To those who gaze from the sea's edge.It is there for benefit; It is there for purging light; There for purifying storms; And its depths reflect all forms; It cannot parley with the mean,— Pure by impure is not seen. For there's no sequestered grot, Lone mountain tarn, or isle forgot, But , journeying in the sphere, Daily stoops to harbour there. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about passion
#5116 Mark Twain

When even the brightest mind in our world has been trained up from childhood in a superstition of any kind, it will never be possible for that mind, in its maturity, to examine sincerely, dispassionately, and conscientiously any evidence or any circumstance which shall seem to cast a doubt upon the validity of that superstition. I doubt if I could do it myself. .

Mark Twain Quotes about passion
#5415 Karl Marx

Karl Marx Quotes about passion
#6620 William Ellery Channing

War is to be ranked among the most dreadful calamities which fall on a guilty world; and, what deserves consideration, it tends to multiply and perpetuate itself without end. It feeds and grows on the blood which it sheds. The passions, from which it springs, gain strength and fury from indulgence. .

William Ellery Channing Quotes about passion
#7009 Albert Camus

Great feelings take with them their own universe, splendid or abject. They light up with their passion an exclusive world in which they recognize their climate. There is a universe of jealousy, of ambition, of selfishness or generosity. A universe — in other words a metaphysic and an attitude of mind. .

Albert Camus Quotes about passion

Samuel Johnson Quotes about passion
#9872 Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt Quotes about passion

Gustave Flaubert Quotes about passion
#13221 G. K. Chesterton

To have seen you and your unforgotten face, Brave as a blast of trumpets for the fray, Pure as white lilies in a watery space, It were something, though you went from me today.To have known the things that from the weak are furled, Perilous ancient passions, strange and high; It is something to be wiser than the world, It is something to be older than the sky. .

G. K. Chesterton Quotes about passion

It was the last weakness he meant to indulge in; and a man never lies with more delicious languor under the influence of a passion than when he has persuaded himself that he shall subdue it to-morrow. .

George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) Quotes about passion
#13389 George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)

Sad as a wasted passion. .

George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) Quotes about passion
#14782 Edmund Burke

In doing good, we are generally cold, and languid, and sluggish; and of all things afraid of being too much in the right. But the works of malice and injustice are quite in another style. They are finished with a bold, masterly hand ; touched as they are with the spirit of those vehement passions that call forth all our energies, whenever we oppress and persecute. .

La Rochefoucauld Quotes about passion
#18433 Jonathan Swift

A set of phrases learnt by rote; A passion for a scarlet coat; When at a play to laugh, or cry, Yet cannot tell the reason why: Never to hold her tongue a minute; While all she prates has nothing in it. .

Jonathan Swift Quotes about passion

Walter Raleigh Quotes about passion
#19066 Henry Ward Beecher

Evil men of every degree will use you, flatter you, lead you on until you are useless; then, if the virtuous do not pity you, or God compassionate, you are without a friend in the universe. .

Henry Ward Beecher Quotes about passion
#19223 Epictetus

Think you to be a philosopher while acting as you do? think you to go on thus eating, thus drinking, giving way in like manner to [your own] wrath and to displeasure? Nay you must watch, you must labor; overcome certain desires; quit your familiar friends, submit to be despised by your slave, to be held in derision by them that meet you, to take the lower place in all things, in office, in positions of authority, in courts of law. Weight these things fully, and then, if you will, lay to your hand; if as the price of these things you would gain Freedom, Tranquility, and passionless Serenity. (104) .

Epictetus Quotes about passion
#19418 Marcus Aurelius

The mind which is free from passions is a citadel, for man has nothing more secure to which he can fly for refuge and for the future be . He then who has not seen this is an ignorant man: but he who has seen it and does not fly to this refuge is unhappy. .

Marcus Aurelius Quotes about passion
#19747 H. G. Wells

That is the only way I ever heard of true research going. I asked a question, devised some method of obtaining an answer, and got — a fresh question. Was this possible or that possible? You cannot imagine what this means to an investigator, what an intellectual passion grows upon him! You cannot imagine the strange, colourless delight of these intellectual desires! .

H. G. Wells Quotes about passion
#20112 C. S. Lewis

When I lay these questions before God I get no answer. But a rather special sort of 'No answer.' It is not the locked door. It is more like a silent, certainly not uncompassionate, gaze. As though He shook His head not in refusal but waiving the question. Like, 'Peace, child; you don't understand.' .

C. S. Lewis Quotes about passion
#22389 Margaret Cho

[About Christian Groups] They have no rights to call themselves "Christians", because they have no Christianity to them; they have no kindness, no compassion, no charity. I want Jesus to come back and say: "THAT'S NOT WHAT I MEANT!" .

Margaret Cho Quotes about passion
#22803 Carl Jung

Unconscious assumptions or opinions are the worst enemy of woman; they can even grow into a positively demonic passion that exasperates and disgusts men, and does the woman herself the greatest injury by gradually smothering the charm and meaning of her femininity and driving it into the background. Such a development naturally ends in profound psychological disunion, in short, in a neurosis. .

Carl Jung Quotes about passion

To glorify the cult of images (my great, my only, my earliest passion). .

Charles Baudelaire Quotes about passion
