passion

A Quote by Alexander Pope on abuse, chaos, confusion, errors, glory, judgment, passion, thought, truth, and world

Chaos of thought and passion, all confused; Still by himself abused or disabused; Created half to rise, and half to fall; Great lord of all things, yet a prey to all; Sole judge of truth, in endless error hurled,- The glory, jest, and riddle of the world.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)

A Quote by Albert Camus on despair, faith, hatred, passion, and reason

To those who despair of everything, reason cannot provide a faith, but only passion, and in this case it must be the same passion that lay at the root of the despair, namely humiliation and hatred.

A Quote by Albert Camus on passion, selfishness, truth, and vices

A liking for truth at any cost is a passion that spares nothing and that nothing resists. It's a vice, at times a comfort, or a selfishness.

A Quote by Albert Camus on friendship, passion, sincerity, and truth

How can sincerity be a condition of friendship? A taste for truth at any cost is a passion which spares nothing.

A Quote by Abraham Lincoln on affection, angels, enemies, friendship, heart, life, memory, nature, passion, and patriotism

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.

A Quote by A. J. Gossip on change, character, christ, christianity, disease, doubt, enthusiasm, faith, hope, illness, passion, preparation, sacrifice, self-sacrifice, strength, wishes, world, and zeal

We have all been inoculated with Christianity, and are never likely to take it seriously now! You put some of the virus of some dreadful illness into a man's arm, and there is a little itchiness, some scratchiness, a slight discomfort-disagreeable, no doubt, but not the fever of the real disease, the turning and the tossing, and the ebbing strength. And we have all been inoculated with Christianity, more or less. We are on Christ's side, we wish him well, we hope that He will win, and we are even prepared to do something for Him, provided, of course, that He is reasonable, and does not make too much of an upset among our cozy comforts and our customary ways. But there is not the passion of zeal, and the burning enthusiasm, and the eagerness of self-sacrifice, of the real faith that changes character and wins the world.
