Passionate Musings

I believe that words uttered in passion contain a greater living truth than do those words which express thoughts rationally conceived. It is blood that moves the body. Words are not meant to stir the air only: they are capable of moving greater things. — Soseki Natsumi, Kokora

Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you’ve got to say, and say it hot. — D. H. Lawrence

Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion. — Martha Graham

Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer. — Mark Z Danielewski, House of Leaves

I want to rip off your logic and make passionate sense to you. I want to ride in the swing of your hips. My fingers will dig in you like quotation marks, blazing your limbs into parts of speech. — Jeffrey McDaniel

The fact is that love is of two kinds, one which commands, and one which obeys. The two are quite distinct, and the passion to which the one gives rise is not the passion of the other. — Honore de Balzac
