Passion Quotes

The fact that in Germany the politics were of the Right and in the United States of the Left should not mislead us. In both places the universities gave way under the pressure of mass movements, and did so in large measure because they thought those movements possessed a moral truth superior to any the university could provide. Commitment was understood to be profounder than science, passion than reason, history than nature, the young than the old.

Allan David Bloom

A mans style in any art should be like his dress it should attract as little attention as possible.

Samuel Butler

The passion of love is essentially selfish, while motherhood widens the circle of our feelings.

Honor de Balzac

How should we like it were stars to burn With a passion for us we could not return? If equal affection cannot be, Let the more loving one be me.

Wystan Hugh Auden

Back o'er the deep I turn my longing eyes, And chide the wayward passions that rebel: Yet boots it not to think, or to complain, Musing sad ditties to the reckless main. To dreams like these, adieu! the pealing bell Speaks of the hour that stays notand the day To life's sad turmoil calls my heart away.

William Lisle Bowles

Julie Andrews

Men don't like to step abruptly out of the security of familiar experience; they need a bridge to cross from their own experience to a new way. A revolutionary organizer must shake up the prevailing patterns of their lives -- agitate, create disenchantment and discontent with the current values, to produce, if not a passion for change, at least a passive, affirmative, non-challenging climate.

Saul David Alinsky

The passion of love is essentially selfish, while motherhood widens the circle of our feelings.

Honor de Balzac

That is, in fact, the true female voice of the orchestra a voice at once passionate and chaste, heart-rending, yet soft, which can weep, sigh, and lament, chant, pray, and muse, or burst forth into joyous accents, as none other can do.

Louis Hector Berlioz

The passion for seeking the truth for truth's sake...can be kept alive only if we continue to seek the truth for truth's sake.

Franz Boas

She that would raise a noble love must find Ways to beget a passion for her mind; She must be that which she to the world would seem, For all true love is grounded on esteem: Plainness and truth gain more a generous heart Than all the crooked subtleties of art.

George Villiers, 2nd Duke of Buckingham
