God give us men. The time demandsStrong minds, great hearts, true faith, and willing hands;Men whom the lust of office does not kill;Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;Men who possess opinions and a will;Men who have honor; men who will not lie;Men who can stand before a demagogueAnd dam his treacherous flatteries without winking;Tall men, sun-browned, who live above the fogIn public duty and in private thinking.
The children eat and wriggle and laugh,The two old ladies stroke their silk;But the cat is grown small and thin with desire,Transformed to a creeping lust for milk.harold monro
Beauty in this Iron Age must turn From fluid living rainbow shapes to torn And sootened fragments, ashes in an urn On whose gray surface runes are traced by a Norn Who hopes to wake the Future to arise In Phoenix -fashion, and to shine with rays To blast the sight of modern men whose dyes Of selfishness and lust have stained our days...philip josé farmer
There is no fire like lust and no crime like hatred. There is no ill like the aggregates (of existence) and no bliss higher than the peace (of Nibbana). (Verse 202)
Natural freedoms are but just: There's something generous in mere lust.
Anarchy had been here all the nineteenth century, with its sinister offspring Nihilism , and it is a simple truth that the human mind can face better the most oppressive government , the most rigid restrictions, than the awful prospect of a lawless, frontierless world . Freedom is a dangerous intoxicant and very few people can tolerate it in any quantity; it brings out the old raiding, oppressing, murderous instincts; the rage for revenge, for power , the lust for bloodshed.
The joker in the deck of lesbian fidelity is female vanity: no woman of fifty is going to undress in front of a woman of twenty no matter how much she might lust for her.florence king
Gratitude looks to the past and love to the present: fear, avarice, lust and ambition look ahead.C. S. Lewis
Then worms shall try That long preserved virginity: And your quaint honour turn to dust; And into ashes all my lust. The grave's a fine and private place, But none I thinkdo there embrace.Andrew Marvell
What dreamest thou, drunkard, drowsy pate? Thy lust and liking is from thee gone. Thou blinkard blowboll, thou wakest too late.john skelton
One of the deep mysteries to me is our logo, the symbol of lust and knowledge, bitten into, all crossed with the colors of the rainbow in the wrong order. You couldn't dream a more appropriate logo: lust, knowledge, hope and anarchy.jean-louis gassée
The subject matter covered in Carmina stays pretty basic: love, lust, the pleasures of drinking and the heightened moods evoked by springtime. These primitive and persistently relevant themes are nicely camouflaged by the Latin and old German texts, so the listener can actually feign ignorance while listening to virtually X-rated lyrics. (Veni Veni Venias! Come, come come now!)The music itself toggles between huge forces and a single voice, juxtaposing majesty and intimacy with ease...carl orff
"They surely are condemned to Hell Who rule their lives by greed and lust And Satan waits for those as well Who in machines repose their trust."john brunner

Gratitude looks to the past and love to the present; fear, avarice, lust, and ambition look ahead.C. S. Lewis
Those who desire to be men in truth, and not brutes, having only the appearance and shape of men, must constantly endeavor to reduce the wants of the body, such as eating, love, drinking, anger, and all manners originating in lust and passion; they must feel ashamed of them and set limits to them for themselves.maimonides
Life is the lust of a lamp for the light that is dark till the dawn of the day that we die.algernon charles swinburne
Of woman's unnatural, insatiable lust, what country, what village doth not complain?robert burton

It is not proof that I sought. I, of all men, know that proof is but a fallacy invented by man to justify to himself and his fellows his own crass lust and folly.
Society drives people crazy with lust and calls it advertising.
It is regarded as normal to consecrate virginity in general and to lust for its destruction in particular.Karl Kraus
Desire , to know why, and how, CURIOSITY; such as is in no living creature but Man ; so that Man is distinguished, not only by his Reason; but also by this singular Passion from other Animals ; in whom the appetite of food, and other pleasures of Sense, by predominance, take away the care of knowing causes; which is a lust of the mind, that by a perseverance of delight in the continual and indefatigable generation of Knowledge, exceedeth the short vehemence of any carnal Pleasure.thomas hobbes
Thus, in his belly, can he change a sin, lust it comes out, that gluttony went in.Ben Jonson
