Don't count the things you do. Do the things that count.
It is with our passions, as it is with fire and water, they are good servants but bad masters.
As rain breaks through an ill-thatched house, passion will break through an unreflecting mind.
Sensual passions are your first enemy.
There is no fire like passion, there is no shark like hatred, there is no snare like folly, there is no torrent like greed
It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.
There is a boundary to men's passions when they act from feeling; none when they are under the influence of imagination.
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.
A man without passion is only a latent force, only a possibility, like a stone waiting for the blow from the iron to give forth sparks.
