Higher Thought

Passion

"Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted... unbidden... it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear.

Oprah Winfrey

"I have a lot of things to prove to myself. One is that I can live my life fearlessly."

Robert Frost

"A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age."

Oscar Wilde

"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation."

Rainer Maria Rilke

"For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation."

Richard Bach

"Imagine the universe beautiful and just and perfect. Then be sure of one thing: The Is has imagined it quite a bit better that you have. The original sin is to limit the Is."
